View Full Version : Altec 846B Value?

09-12-2003, 05:07 PM

I have been lurking here for some time and enjoy the information contained in these forums.

I need some advice.

I have a pair of Altec 846B speakers that I would like to sell. I would like to know the approximate value (if any) of these units.

I want to sell them complete or as individual components.

Each speaker has an 806-8A Treble driver with metal horn that appear to be 2 halves welded together across the middle.

The LF drivers are 15" with black rubber looking accordion surrounds.

The cabinets are walnut and one is in very good condition while the other has an area of veneer delamination on the lower left side bottom where it must have gotten wet. It is intact and could be repaired

The grill cloth is missing but the thin boards to which it was mounted are intact and both "Altec" badges are there and in good condition.

On the rear is an N800 crossover with a level control.

These sound great. I connected them to a JVC boom box and the sound was quite impressive.

I would want to keep them except that they are too large for my house.

Any suggestions would be welcome. Should I try to sell them whole or parted out?

Thanks Don

The 846B doesnt look quite the same but I guess the overall value would be similar.

I think I will list them on ebay and see what happens.
