Actually, these are GPA woofers - made for Iconic Manufacturing by Bill...

In many ways, they're BETTER than the ones Altec built....

Just thought I'd clear the air about this - neither Iconic nor GPA want anyone to think that they are trying to use the goodwill of the Altec name to sell their products...hope you understand...

So, Scott -
did you ever get your speakers? I'm interested in knowing how the "new non-chinese GPA Altec Bill Iconics" sound! LOL!

I put them in this week. they are efficient as all get out! they have excellent midbass transient response. Great clarity. Good power handling. But, the bass is a bit light for my taste! Just to keep everytrhing clear, Bill actually told me the 8GHP would be a bit bass shy for my taste. he reccomended the 515E version for me!

But Ill tell ya this, that man Bill can build a speaker! Im currently debating with which version to proceed with! They are GREAT drivers!

You CAN get a very familiar 16" two-way loudspeaker from Iconic Mfg. Co.!

Available at this time in systems only....
