Phoenix Hi Fi: Construction, equipment renewal, experimentation, measurements and LISTENING!
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.
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.
Fisher 800-C refurbishment included new power supply caps, bias supply mod to allow bias adjustments, new coupling caps, new AC switch and a modern replica wood case.
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.
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.
Altec Model 19 Restoration included cabinets and crossovers.
