Hey all - I posted about these last Fall when I was trying to get them to perform their best. They were a birthday present to myself. I thought they’d be a fun little project since everything was in such great shape. I assumed they wouldn’t need much to bring ‘em around. Well, they did not sound great in my listening room. I came here for help, and received it. Yay! Crites Type A crossovers were recommended among other things, and those have been the only mods I’ve pursued. The cabinets are original, and I have all the original paperwork from the initial sale in 1982. They sound amazing, even with a very modest sub. Cosmetically, well, I’ll show ya... And here’s an anomaly: Notice the grain of the strip under the glass top? (Yeah, they have glass tops). Now check out the LOWER strip on the other speaker... Someone should have picked up on that! It’s either a charming result of the fact that these were largely handmade and therefore imperfect, or it’s a fatal flaw for the purists. I think it’s kinda cool. (I digitally exaggerated the resolution of these two areas so you could see them more clearly.) Here’s one of the old crossovers... 😕 NOTE: I did not save these after installing the Crites Type A crossovers - I’m not curating a museum; I wanted good sound. 😉 And the dual phase plug driver... I can can provide more pics, but it’s getting late. $1,800 OBO. **3/20/19: $1,500 OBO** The catch: I’m not willing to ship them. Or move them at all, frankly. My old body is not up to it. So, someone with a truck or van, a strong friend or two, and a willingness to come to northern Colorado, will be getting some extraordinary Belles! They need a better home than I’m providing. I’ve not posted in Garage Sale before, so let me know what else I can do to ensure that you have all the info you need. Thx, and happy listening! Dan O.
