  1. I am looking for a Stephens TruSonic 103LX2 which is 4 ohm.....in red like this one If anyone has one, please let me know.
  2. I like the raw wood look. Kinda vintage industrial.... But certainly open to veneering with something simple like walnut.....or something exotic. LoL.....don't know yet. Open about it.
  3. Thanks! The first one....on the right, has an incredible finish to it. The second one will need some work. Some paint loss on the horizontal pieces....and the finish is not nearly as nice. Will have to figure out what to do. Maybe talk to a furniture refinisher....about matching the finish.
  4. Was able to pick up a pair of Cornwalls a couple months ago. Not set up yet....but thought a picture was due. They are 1974 or "73? The cabs are Douglas Fir.
  5. Thought I'd update this thread. I haven't posted in a while..... I did drive to Texas and buy a second Klipschorn. A 2000 mile RT, for me! Had to hang out in Houston an extra day to allow hurricane Ida to pass....then headed home to Tampa / St. Pete. Original fabric is in pretty good shape. So these are a project.....and will have to be on the back burner for some time. The first one I bought has a P52 TruSonic woofer and the second has a 103LX TruSonic. Both are 4 ohm, I believe. The 103LX has a Red Back..... I'd kinda like to match up the Red TruSonic and have a pair. I've seen many woofers in Blue....but not in Red. Anyone know the difference? Anyone have one to sell or trade?
  6. Thanks @Fast996 for noticing my ad for the 1953 Klipschorn. She's a beauty for sure! I got it a little over a year ago....and posted on here, the Klipsch Community about it. Have quite a few 50s era speakers.... I have a compulsion to buy singles and try to match them up.... Not a good business or sanity model.... But, having looked for a year.....I have found a match that is only 30 days apart in manufacturing....and all Klipsch Codes match. Even the fabric matches...! And it is in nice shape also....but have only seen it in pics. Working on a deal now to acquire it...but more work to do. It is located 1000 miles away....so working on that also. I do have a question for anyone knowledgeable about the cabinets. These are pics of mine. There looks to be a bead or filler or some sort of build-up that gives the horizontal plywood edge a sort of curved appearance.. The paint is not on just the flat cut edge. Some sort of edge banding. Anyone know what that is? Thanks Leland
  7. Hi TFR1. I have a match for the 1953 Klipschorn you mention that your friend bought above. ( or at least very close.) From the Auction Site....your friend's is a type 357. Mine is a 357-7. I don't know what this difference is. But the rest of the identification numbers and types all match. Mine is serial 426 and your friend's is 414. Same finish. Mine is July '53 and your friend's is June '53. Any chance of you getting in touch with him for me? Hard to tell what year these posts are.....so realize it might be a bit old.... But, thought I'd post and check with you about it. Best Lee
  8. Hi @Godataloss Do you think it might be for sale...? I couldn't afford the Tannoy Silver....but perhaps he'd like to sell the cabinet... Or even better....Buy mine. I am sure the one pictured above is a genuine Altec 606. I believe these on the East Coast were manufactured by HomeCraft Furniture Co. in New Jersey. Those sold on the West Coast....were manufactured by Hill Craft Furniture Company. I believe this to be the case.... I did buy a second one.....but now have regrets.....it is not the same as mine. Could have a discussion about these if anyone is interested..... Back to the Fisher X-202. Was reading up on it...and didn't realize it was held in such high regard....suppose to be a nice amp. Mine came out of a console.....so it says Executive on the front left.....instead of the Model #. And no case. Looks to be original....but I haven't looked inside.
  9. Can't load other pics.....I would be over 2Mb. I'll wait a day or 2.....and down size the others. It is the older version with the gold face plate.....and not a B or C model.
  10. Hey @RandyH 000 got a bit delayed in getting back to you. Got busy....found another Altec 606 cabinet....and bought it. I really don't want to sell my Fisher X-202 right now. Granted it has just been sitting on a shelf for a couple years....but perhaps one day, I'll get to fixing it up. I will post some pics for you. It has not been cleaned....but looks pretty good.
  11. Thanks MacMan....I hadn't thought of that. Will have to check it out.
  12. Hey Randy, Let me think about it. "Beautiful" is for cosmetic condition....hasn't been restored electronically...
  13. Lots of nice gear! I'm on the scent of a matching Altec 606 cabinet.....so off to the hunt. Emails sent. Best to you Lee
