    @Mike Caldwell: At this point I'm going to send both drivers to Bill, once I receive the used Tangerine plug. I've already fried three diaphragms, including the two rare 23744's. I did try to clean...

    The best way I can describe it is, lower in level when compared to the other driver. I can hear highs in the right, but pales compared to left

    Both drivers had 23744 diaphragms, but only the...

    I'm going to send both drivers to Bill once I receive the used Tangerine plug. Now that he'll have both, maybe he'll be able to hear the difference between the two. In the meantime I bought two used...
  4. Yes but from what Widget is saying, I'm thinking...

    Yes but from what Widget is saying, I'm thinking the black phase plug won't make any difference since this also seems to be a Tangerine model. I was hoping it was aftermarket and maybe not as good of...

    @Widget: Bummer; I was hoping all Altec Tangerine plugs are orange. Then maybe the fact that mine is black might be my problem.

    @ Mike Caldwell: there are in fact two spacers on the right driver....

    Ya after doing some research on the phase plugs, the ones that aren't Tangerine look totally different. As you mentioned this black one has the same design. I'm hoping it's aftermarket and not quit...

    Oh wow! This has to be my problem then. Bill from GPA said the new diaphragm is working but he wasn't able to hear both in comparison.

    I dug a little deeper in my checkbook register from 2012 and...

    Please keep in mind when I swapped the good horn assembly from the left cabinet and placed in the right, I got the same higher frequencies that are in the left. I...

    @Mike Caldwell:

    Last year I bought an amp/speaker switch box, so the two-amps-to-one-pair-of-speakers debacle is no longer an issue. And I've replaced the amp that blew.

    Today I was able to...

    Hi DerekTheGreat, also from Michigan nice!

    Yes, muddier sound follows the bad horn. A few tests I haven't done yet are swap horns and drivers (put good driver on bad horn) and install the good...

    Ok Earl K;

    I sent the driver to GPA (which had the new GPA diaphragm that I mangled). I got it back about a week later, tested and sounds just as muddy as before. I was expecting them to replace...
  12. @ Earl: Not being harsh at all. I can take the...

    @ Earl: Not being harsh at all. I can take the truth. I'm more of an automotive repair guy than delicate stuff like this. Yes I'll probably send it in the GPA depending on what Bill says when he...
  13. Diaphragm arrived yesterday and I still have the...

    Diaphragm arrived yesterday and I still have the same amount of muffled high-end. More to the story. It’s lengthy I’m sorry.

    I did get sent the newer style diaphragm (with wiring kit) that has a...
  14. Hi Earl, Is it safe to say that since both...

    Hi Earl,

    Is it safe to say that since both diaphragms have red and black wiring (you said stock was green and brown) and both have what looks like modern crimp connectors (not sure if these...

    When removing the diaphragm from the magnet, I accidently pushed on the center, so that's why it looks more damaged that it originally was. I tried to pop out the indentation but that only made it...

    The diaphragm that has the broken lead-ins is the one that has a sticker that has my name and date on the magnet (placed there by whichever shop I must have dropped it off to). Therefore I know this...

    Thank you, Earl K; much appreciated!

    I think I found the problem. Upon your advice I took apart the diaphragm and saw both the little leads that run from the silver portion of the diaphragm...

    I'm a dummy. Good call didn't even think of that part of the test.

    Ok I did that and you're right; the problem is in the diaphragm, not the x-over. By moving the complete horn assembly into the...
  19. one Altec Lansing Model 15 sounds muddier than other

    Hello,

    Newbie here. I have a pair of Altec Lansing Model 15 and one sounds a little muddier than the other.

    Iíve confirmed itís the speaker & not the amp, cables, etc. One of the tests to...
