It was a lucky find. The ad said that one of the speakers wasn't working, but it turned out the lamp cord they were using had frayed, both speakers work perfectly.

Here's a picture of the back of the driver, and another of the cabinet. Haven't figured out a way to access the front of the driver without taking everything apart.

I also managed to grab a copy of the full brochure for the Axiettes on ebay, with specs and cabinet suggestions, which I'm happy to send photos of to anyone interested (I'm assuming this isn't the place to post them).

Thank you, Dave, for those links. I've been looking at planet10 as I begin to think about what cabinets they should go into. I can also try to get a better picture if you're interested. It's nice to have a bit of that Tannoy flavor, I miss mine.


I posted about the amplifier here:

Closer look suggests that is a diy box.  These drivers predate T/S so to do a proper box would require measuring them.

To get to the front i expect those decorative pieces hide staples holding the cloth in place. These were often monted from the rear of the cutout, if so it should be possible to remove the screws/bolts holding them in and pull the driver.

You do probably want to ensure that the front of the drive rlooks fine.

I posted my home system about two weeks ago, right before I left the city. After about a week I realized I couldn't do without music. Last weekend I managed to find these very cool speakers for free on CL, picked them up in the driveway without ever meeting the owners. When I opened them up they turned out to be Goodmans Axiette II 8's, terrific full-range drivers from the 50s, I'm guessing 94db. Drove back home to pick up this little integrated that runs on an old Soviet version of the 807.

Hope everyone's staying safe.



Hey!

   Nice find there!  I'm sure the midrange is gorgeous. Don't burn then next the fireplace!  :lol:

Hey!

    Those TB drivers look good. I check the raw driver spec sheet and is looks impressive, and should work great with back loaded horn type. How do they sound to you in those enclosures?

Aragon I really like those amp stands. Did you make those? Can you talk about them a little? Tanks

I bet they sound impressive in the TL enclosure....although I cannot say much about a possible horn enclosure!  My Brines TL are something special indeed!

Eliptrac smooth wooden horns are serious, and ALK knows and understands all Klipsch!

Great work on your system design.

Best,

Years of patience has finally paid off. Custom built amps, preamp, and speakers rounded out the rest of the components and the full room treatment was long overdue. Only thing still in the works are a couple turntables that are getting full restorations.

So which do you prefer the OB's or MLTL's?

Hi Charlie,
Do you could inform us on the details of these open reel tape decks and how you purchased them?

The main decks I use weekly are two TEAC a3340s models and an Otari MTR-10.
