    The WAF on those would be -154 for your wife...unless you married a projectionist.
    Nothing is misguided to it's creators, only the recipients who didn't want the expectation ruined for them.

    And a Bogen tube preamp.
    They sound so sweet,

    Ron,
    Don't you have some old A7's Votts ?
    Nice!

    I do at my sisters in her storage outbuilding, we used to use them for the band PA when I was still playing. I am sure they are full of mice nests but I know the building is solid and dry. Have not been up there to see them in years. My step father passed away recently and he has a giant ass Klipsch horn type speaker and some Fisher tube equipment. Been thinking I should go up there before my sisters has a yardsale like she did with my grandmothers stuff and never let me knew about it!!!!

    Seems like that is where most are. When I went to get Lee's amps with Joe, the original VOTT's from Woodstock were sitting in the same building. I wonder if they will ever see use again

    Sure would be nice if they did. It's a shame to see them go to waste like that.
    Some people are like slinkies; Not really good for anything, but sure bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of steps

    ---there is no replacement for displacement
    Never really looked at any of the large horns before, but now that my boards from Joe shipped today for my first WOPL PL400 build, will have to do a little research......baby steps, baby steps

    first pants, then shoes (first WOPL PL400, then LaScala's)

    found these on on the local CL:

    No such things as bad days, just bad moments
    The very first speakers I owned that I did not build were VOTT A7 500's. Got them used for $600 when I was 17. I don't think my mother much liked them but I moved out shortly after. I was forbidden to take the H.H. Scott 30WPC receiver so all I had was an 8WPC Heathkit tube amp I built in grade 9. The house I moved into was tiny and the Altecs literally would not fit in the living room so they went in an even tinier 4th bedroom totally devoid of furniture, just off the living room. They were jammed against the side walls with just enough room between for my Garrard changer. Sometimes a party attendee would stretch out on a couple of kitchen chairs with their head inside the bass horn. The black light and psychedelics made that look a bit strange sometimes. Despite only having 8WPC, the cops visited regularly re noise complaints. I sold them about a year and a half later for $500 and bought a motorcycle.
