Altec Lansing 604e A Perfect Pair Near Toronto For Sale
Altec Lansing 604E A Perfect Pair
Two near perfect Altec Lansing 604E "Voice of the Theatre" speakers and N-1500-A crossovers (dividing networks). Two solid speaker cabinets to Altec design are buyers option.
These were my Dad's. He bought them new in 1967 and he built the two speaker cabinets. These speakers have been in those sturdy boxes for over forty years and rarely used.
I have to move and downsize so I need to find a new home for these. Hopefully you know what they are and will appreciate and care for them.
They sound beautiful here. All the voicecoils are good. There is no damage nor barely even a scratch. Some very light surface rust I can see in only one place and I've shown you that in the pictures. If you can't see it, it is the screw on the end cap.
The cabinets are huge and heavy. They are teak veneer and show their age with chips and scratches. They have been moved four times. I'd thought about recovering them as road cases? They are solid and build to the Altec design. They certainly served the purpose well.
I will include my Dad's design notes, letters between Dad and Altec and an Altec publication "Loudspeaker Enclosures, their design and use" from 1966. If you don't take the cabinets, I believe you will have all the info you need to build another set.
I offer the purchaser the shipped price for the speakers and crossovers ONLY. The price shown by is PER BOX. THERE WILL BE TWO BOXES. If you want the cabinets shipped too, I will have to get you a shipping estimate based on your location.
If you want to pick these up, pickup at my home (between Erin and Acton, northwest about 50km of Toronto, Ontario) is $5.
Or - I can meet you at Hwy 401 and Trafalgar Road west of Toronto with the speakers and/or cabinets for $15 to cover my gas and time if that helps you.
I removed the speakers from the cabinets for the pictures below. I plan to leave them out until I learn if the buyer wants the cabinets also and the shipping method.
If shipped without the cabinets, the speakers will be mounted to plywood boards and very carefully packed with the crossovers.
The sale starting price is the price per speaker in 1967, but you will get the pair!
Normally I ship within one day of receiving payment. With these speakers, I am going to ask you for two days to secure proper boxes and to carefully pack them before they ship.
, low starting price. Returns not accepted unless I have mis-represented the item. But if you need this and win it, I am pretty sure you will be pleased.
Thanks for your interest. Any questions, please ask.
