I had an older pair of those Altecs( magnet was grey and had a larger cooling vent) until someone broke into my shop and stole them. They were great sounding speakers. Strong bass despite the somewhat little XMAX, smooth mids and descent highs. They could use a tweeter for the really high frequencies, but were ok without Tweeters.

just did a google check, mine were the 755a's


now . after 7 years, I'm REALLY ticked about them being stolen! My grandfather gave them to me and I didn't know they were from the 50's!

heres another site with a pic that shows the evolution of these speakers


more info

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

stolen 755's that is truly sad-

cheap tip-

instead of tweeters, drink much caffiene-

as a coffiee drunk, i recomend this,

for safety,and sanity, add tweeters

yeah i had 4 755a's, they were in gorgeous condition . Probably stolen by some punk that hooked them up to a 100 watt stereo and launched their cones into orbit thinking "Oh big speaker with big magnet, must be high wattage" ( though I'd like to think the old girls put up some kind of fight before blowing)

Oh dear, those 4 755a can probably fetch $3K or more on the Ebay... lots of willing buyers from the Far East. I have the 755C it's sounds very good on Open Baffle.

the 755s have perhaps the most outrageus magnet shape,

thus far used on a speaker, the alnico versions, that is.

i'm sure them that took, were mighty surprised when taken!

arround here, large speakers that are stolen wind up in some jackwads car stereo hooked up to multihundred wattage amps. I fear they were quickly destroyed by stupidity not long after they were stolen.



To the best speakers I have ever owned, may they rest in peace
