    Altec ID.....Anyone know these?

    Anyone recognize these beauty's? These were the first big Altec I ever bought over 15 years ago and I just got them back today. They are loaded with a 415C and a little 3000 (R)? horn tweeter. I remember at the time not knowing what model they were. I have gone thru the library here and all my Altec literature with no luck. They are 28 1/2 H X 24 W X 18 D

    But not the Seville, the grill is different and flat. Those are 15 inch 415C bi-flex so perhaps early 70s?

    They sound AWESOME!

    Could be an Altec 870B you can get that 3000B repaired it takes a microphone diaphragm there is a place out in Anaheim that repairs those 3000 tweets,mics,etc... He's an old Altec technician.Call him soon as the last i heard he was quite busy so there may be a wait.

    IIRC I think that they were just before the Santanas.Except for the different tweet.

    Wow !! It wasn't that long last time I heard. Your Welcome ! I'm Sorry he wasn't a viable option for you though.He has the original diaphragm's for those 3000's though, maybe you can get the diaphragms from him and install.Unless your local tech has them. Regards !
