Altec Model 19

Altec Model 19 Restoration included cabinets and crossovers.

With help from Joe Auwen in Prescoot Arizona, these MC30s look beautiful.  They also feature a reversible modification that adds a 7Henry choke to the power supply.

Marantz Model 33 Rebuild

Completely rebuilt.  All caps, some transistors and a few resistors were replaced.  I modified the unti to add a balanced output.  This unit is currently in my main system.

Dual 12" woofers in a sealed enclosure.  Cabinets were in pretty good shape, but I replaced  crossover capacitors with film types, and replaced the non functional fabric dome tweeters with Beston planar tweeters, though pictured here is the original fabric dome.

Completely refinished, including a rebuilt base. All crossover caps were replaced with modern film caps with the tweeter fed with a Jupiter Beeswax film cap.  My son in law loves them, "they rock"   Kids today.  When I was a kid back in the 60s we never rocked.
