    Thanks for the thorough reply. I haven't opened up the crossovers of my Model 19 in a long time. I'll take a peak at it but what you wrote does make sense as a lot of the old tube equipment do the...

    I think you might need to allow the surrounds and spiders loosen up a bit. Also, you might want to try out a different preamp or no preamp at all if your QSC has line-in level controls. I had a...

    Wow, you have some very fine speakers. How's the bass on the Model 17 compare to the L300? I would think that the bass of the 17 does not go as low nor does it sound as good as the L300.

    I would go ahead and use another crossover since the 846B has a really simple crossover and could use some updating. If you don't want to redesign the whole thing, I'd check out this thread and...

    Are these cabs to big for you? If you have the budget, I recommend going with the B&C for possibly more clarity on the upper end. That's what my friend with really good high frequency hearing told...

    Congrats on a very fine purchase. From what you wrote, it looks like the 4345's are now "original" so no 435Be's then? If so, that's a bit of a bummer considering that it's one heck of a driver. ...

    We use to have these speakers briefly when I was growing up. IIRC, they are very cheaply made though they do look impressive to the uninitiated, with the glass top and all. You might have to cough...

    Good idea. I don't remember if the slot is big enough for the forearm (sp?) to get through though. I have a pile of other speakers (Model 14 and 4311) sitting in front of my Model 19 so I...

    For me personally, a fair price would be $400-500 due to the bad diaphragm and non-standard black paint or stain job.

    IIRC, the 604-8H is the last of the alnico 604's. If NOS and a friendly deal, $1K is fair. If not from a friend, I would offer up to $1500 for the set and then flip the 8G xovers and build my own...
