  • Has anyone used this buyout 6.5 inch woofer.....?

    From about 4 years ago I think...

    I happened upon the actual speaker it was taken from, at goodwill, the Advent AS2, and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it sounds.

    Not world class, but quite smooth and decent bass for the small sized cabinet. What looks to be a Vifa tweeter also.
    I expected Mediocre, and it is actually fairly neutral and somewhat impressive sounding even.

    I don't know why you are surprised. Even after he(Henry Kloss) sold a company, the design mantra would be to 'be like Hank'.

    Within the limitations of each and any different design, and if healthy, they should be among the best commercial speakers of their time and price.

    And sometimes a very clever or lovely cabinet, worth reusing if the guts are toast, like my Legacy IIs, real oak top and base, a cloth grill in between,
    when a friend needed the tweeters, I made them three-ways with the original good woofers(and looks).
