1985 Advent tweeter replacement

Just found the site- wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. I'm looking to replace the tweeter in one of my old Advent 3-ways, (floor model, 1985ish, do not know model or stlye) Is it possible to find original speakers? Or do I look to find a new speaker that will fit in the hole? Thanks

Hey, Johnj!

I just had a friend rebuild a couple pairs of Advents with the "25th Anniversary Tweeter." I will ask him to come and reply to your question.

Don't go buy anything else just yet!

Perfect.

I'll leave the tweeter guy alone.

To identify your Advent model try here: http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/showthread.php?t=126376

Try asking your question here after identifying the model: http://www.classicspeakerpages.net/IP.Board/index.php?showforum=5

Here is a place for replacement drivers: http://www.simplyspeakers.com/12diaphragms.htm The P85C00019 is likely to be an adequate replacement.

I don't know if this site is still active: http://layneaudio.hypermart.net/Advent.htm

Re: 1985 Advent tweeter replacement

Thanks for all the info. I'm an idiot- blew the fuse- tweeter is fine. That happens sometimes when the 3 year old decides to turn knobs.

Turns out I have a pair of Maestro's. Sad to find out they were the first Jensen model, but I've enjoyed them over the years. I remember buying them as a senior in High School after saving $ forever. I was so ecstatic when I set them up in my room. Drove them with a decent HK receiver for years. Currently running with a Paradigm sub and Parasound Pre-amp and Amp. Had them reconed a few years back and they still sound good in our small home.
