It was a single, very big box with one Focal driver, bandpass design,IIRC. I didn't like it, because it was very inefficient. I returned it, loosing 15%. I considered myself lucky anyway

Built two subwoofers later in, vented boxes, with two 12" Vietas in push pull arrangement and that was good. Elliot used to joke about Speaker Shop, calling them Youngee Guys

Peter;

I just called the number you gave me and an answering machine says " youve reached The Canadian Loudspeaker Corp." The address given is Curity Ave. It gives extension numbers for The Speaker Shop also. Their hours are limited though, 2:30 to 5:30 weekdays only. Not very good for me as Saturday is my best day to go down there.

The other number I gave you (416) 782-4451 still works and get you directly to The Speaker Shop. They lost one of their key employees, John if I remember correctly, who went to another job in Hamilton. He had been at the Speaker Shop since the beginning on Yonge St.

The contact name for Canadian Loudspeaker Corp. is Thomas Irons. Looking at the website for MAX speakers, it is still unfinished as it has been for many months now. Clicking on contacts it still says " comming soon ". I don't know whats going on there.

Thanks Joe D.

Maybe I'll check them out. What brands do they carry? Do they carry crossover parts ie: inductors, capacitors etc.?

Peter, I will check out Zalytron in N.Y.

kids went to a the most recent import car show
the max product was being flogged.

the speaker shop guys seemed full of themselves could never warm up to them

in contrast while vacationing in pheonix went to both driver vendors stores and had wonderful conversations about technology, speakers and audio in general.
(while there had nick at lambda courier me some surrounds and glue to the hotel -got it to me in a day)

is elliot as volatile as some describe?

Default An update

I just finished talking with Tom from the ex-Speaker Shop about their new line of products and what they now carry. Their main focus is certainly on their own line but they do still carry Peerless, Beyma and few other brands which Tom did not go into depth about. Their hours are still 2:30 to 5 so it's certainly going to be challenging to actually get there to investigate but with any luck their site will be updated shortly (Tom mentioned it should be done in a few weeks with full specs for their high-end line).

Hi Scott;

Hey, I thought this thread was dead, I was surprized to get an email notification today that there was a new posting.

Yes, their hours of operation will be a problem for most people to access them and being from out of town it certainly will be a problem for me. They are not open any evenings or on Saturday either.

I did call there today and they answered the phone to " Canadian Loudspeaker Corp. ", not sure who I spoke to. I mentioned that I had been down there but couldn't locate them, so he gave me specific directiones:
They are one block north of St Clair on Curity. Best way I know is to go south from the 401 on Victoria Park to O'Connor Drive, turn right on O'Connor till you get to Curity, then turn right on Curity. He said they are just a couple of blocks up from there.

The Max website still isn't finished, it's still the same way it has been for a year now.

I asked the person that I spoke to today if they were getting a website or a basic e-mail address for the Speaker Shop, and he replied " there's to many magnets around there and they don't want computers around "!! They don't seem to be to interrested in doing business.

The Tom you mentioned was probably Thomas Irons, he used to manage the Max line at The Canadian Loudspeaker Corp., and Frank Fabian managed the Speaker Shop. Frank Fabian is one of the original owners of the Speaker Shop.

I'm not sure what's going on down there, but I miss the Speaker Shop store on Eglinton Ave., as I could walk in on a Saturday to look and buy stuff and talk to someone in person who was knowledgable.

Doug
