    Separate Altec section?

    I think most would be okay with keeping JBL and Altec products in different sections. The "general" section is really crowded and it might be beneficial to add an additional section,. If its too complicated or not worth the effort, I fully understand, but I think its worth discussing.

    Call me crazy... isn't there a dedicated Altec web site already? I understand the
    association and I enjoy reading about Altec gear here (when I choose to, like
    any other topic).

    Perhaps someone could expand upon why a separate section would be needed,
    as it's not clear (to me, at least)... I don't feel crowded.

    I guess the Library areas are kept separate, so I don't really care unless it's a
    "make-work" task for those that have already provided a lot of free effort for all
    of our benefit... or if somehow, it would make their lives easier.

    Altec Lansing Forum

    There is no need for an Altec dedicated forum section, here - they do a good job over there, and it's improving all the time.

    Our Library has an Altec drivers, cabinets, catalogues and reference section, here: Altec Library at Lansing Heritage Forum

    I don't get it, the complaint being that there's too little "action" over there.

    There'd be a bunch more if everyone went over there to discuss Altec.

    Seems some of our Altec fans may have been kicked outta there already, tho....

    I feel that creating a separate section would add to the isolation some Altec fans already feel. I think its healthier to keep it together.

    But nobody wants to, there's more discussion about Altec here, but it gets lost in the sea of JBL banter.

    Well, more people are into JBL on this particular forum.

    I use Altec 15,s still, and I love them, but, I dont talk so much like I used to. My workload dictates that I spend more time doing my mechanical work than conversing online. I also will add that after a bit, say the first year, it gets old talking about the same thing over and over, so, some of us just arent as talkative online as we once were. Doesnt mean I am not listening to Altec right now.

    I also love JBL, their 18,s make the best, punchy sub bass. And I love JBL tweeters and comp drivers too. I just dont have time to discuss audio like I used to.

    Just the way it is.
