    Widget, I couldnít have said it better. This is why I have a clear preference for high efficiency, horn based systems. They just sound more real to my ears. However - done poorly, they can be awful!

    Very cool. They are incredible speakers just with a little TLC as you no doubt, have noticed! The old 806 series drivers really never did justice to 811B horns.

    Yes, that “step baffle” with the 811B mounted is reminiscent of the 846B Valencia, of which I do own a pair. The 846B also feature two round vents on either side of the woofer, made of cardboard...

    I don’t think that is an Altec cabinet. For example, the 846A wasn’t ported with a pipe style vent like that as such, to my knowledge only the 846B was. It had a large wide gap that acted as a vent,...
