Help me here......Just what is that.....A

full range speaker...or....a Bass bin? Weren't Altec's considered top

of the line around the 70's?

That is a bass bin, half of a A7 setup that uses a horn on top or inside.

Here is a factory pic with the horn inside. When the horn is on top the cabinet is reversed with the bass port at the bottom.

A7's are highly sought after in the collectors world. Here is a pic of

the ones I ran for years in my system. I veneered them in walnut, make

the solid walnut frames for the grills and added the solid walnut

pedestals. They are some of the most musical and efficient speakers

(104dB) I have ever owned. I love the sound of horns. These are the

speakers I replaced with the new DIY horns I built.
