I have an oppurtunity to purchase some older Altec's but we don't know what model they are. The guy say's the cabinet's have 2 12" woofers and 1 8" horn. Anyone know the model of these? He also say's they are for p.a. use .Are they worth $300.00. I am trying to get driver model's from this guy. Have to wait and see what he writes back. Sorry no pictures. Thanks!

I just got an email back from a lady who said her husband got these from a radio station he worked at years ago and the cabinets are painted all black. Sorry,not much to go on.What do you think? :banghead:

Sounds like they could be 9844As. These used dual 414 woofers and 811B horn with small format 806A compression driver. If so, they would easily be worth more than $300 if in decent shape.
