    He thought he was dreaming, then realized he'd come awake. Bon voyage, Mr. AB Seawolf--bon voyage.

    I think his primary point of contact now is his Facebook page: Upland Speaker.

    Have you tried over at the Altec user's forum? Todd White and co. might have the lore about that cover.

    Well, as it is said in art history, it certainly could be Rene Magritte studio. The title is Blank Signature. You just need to be able to borrow unabashedly.

    A counter example: JBL made 100 pairs of its top of the line 4345, but according to G.T. the sound quality was compromised by the cost engineer's choice of a cheesy biamp switch.

    Good luck.

    I like the speakers, too, their accuracy, and agree with you about that midrange driver. I think the tonality/voicing leaves somewhat to be desired. It's objectively a better speaker...

    It was a good score, and I'm glad you were there before those frames went into the land fill. However, not to be a nag, and this could well be entirely moot now because all of those cones are...

    Welcome to the forum and good luck with your project.

    I'm going to jump ahead with my first response, and that is to forewarn you that if you try to use these speakers for DJing, you will ruin,...

    I really understand the logic of your choices. You have cozy-up speakers and include-everybody speakers. When you get the the 4355's set up with some amps you'll have blast-off speakers whenever...

    I think you mean one translates a curve from one system to another, guided by reference to new raw data, but not sure. There was a time, after a year or so of reading literary theory, I thought I...

    The voltage drive of the passive crossover is calibrated into an eight ohm load. What load is used in setting the active crossover? Do you drive through an amp into an eight ohm load?

    :)Hmmm. My wife once commented that stamps or coins might be an interesting collectible. I was only at the 4333A stage then. 4345's and stacks of plain plywood boxes topped with horns came later.

    I like your collection in that it represents a selection of distinctly different approaches. The 4355's will be very different—at the far other end of the spectrum from Quads. I've never heard them...

    Looks like treasure to me. Photos of the other load and overall photos of each speaker would be appreciated.

    I would suggest you post them on websites favored by rockers, maybe Gear Slutz-- I'm sure there are others I don't know. Someone will know all about them. The drivers look more like sound...

    I wouldn't dismiss those drivers out of hand. RCF is an established brand, that woofer looks substantial (and the frame is painted) and the crossover doesn't look like nothing. None of it looks like...

    And some design chops borrowed from the '50's Eames/Trusonic collaboration. <https://eames.com/en/blog/blog-eamestrusonicspeake> Although I believe the driver in the E-4 Quadraflex was a JBL D123.

    Do you think it's possible that to say you are restoring a pair of speakers and using the old CD diaphragms may be delusional? Your friends above have tried to discourage you from embarking on the...

    My best guess is that is a custom build or retailer's product by someone who knew what he was doing. It combines a PA treble with a bass reflex woofer in a Santiago style--domestic, infinite...

    Your builder will tell you twelve inch spacing would be better because it is a module for standard sheet materials (plywood) sizes. Ten would waste time and materials.
