This series of responses makes me want to find every for sale advertisement for old shitty Altec home stereo speakers and post them here.
Well regardless, speaking as a person who was an engineer at the Altec factory and know their products very well, I'm sure you can imagine that their marketing department might possibly have cast some of their products in a better-than-reality light? The problem is that if you weren't actually there, you don't know what you don't know.This series of responses makes me want to find every for sale advertisement for old shitty Altec home stereo speakers and post them here.
I don't have experience with Fisher speakers at all, but the fact that the crossover at least uses air core inductors and a film capacitor at least looks promising. Altec routinely used iron core inductors even in their professional speakers, and iron core inductors can saturate which causes distortion. Also, film capacitors are obviously better than electrolytics if for no other reason than the fact that they don't age from electrolyte drying out.How about these sexy Fisher speakers?
