|Altec 846A Valencia's with yet to be installed Mast_Mutter custom crossovers
A second pair of absolutely pristine Altec 846A speakers from an estate liquidator in Sacramento. Even cleaner than my current pair. I was looking for a pair for a friend but he was evaluating other possible speakers and I didn't want to leave these behind. Will install Mast Mutter x-overs on the first pair and do a true A/B evaluation.
