Yes the word on the street is true, having trouble loading an image to prove it.... Am I buying two houses that are connected or something else? I should receive them hopefully before end of next week. A rehab will definitely be in order!

... or a standard (at least in the US) AC power receptacle?

That would certainly be a more cost effective option!

Congratulations, Audionut :)

Please tell us more.

Which series Duplex?

Type of enclosure?

Thanks Tubehifinut! I'm pretty excited myself. Let me see if the site will allow me to load pics. Try not to faint as one pic isn't for the faint of heart! One hint; my duplexes could wear a cape.
Well, I keep getting an error loading pics. On the bright side I can now quote another persons message in my response (using an iPad Pro)
Tried loading again with no success, I guess I can give more hints; the sum of the first three model numbers is 10 and the letter that follows them is 5th in the alphabet (from beginning to end). Ohh they come without enclosure so that will be a fun project.

The uploading and display of images on this forum is -- fraught. At best. :)
Image (file) size could be a factor; I am still fairly enamored of using a hosting service (FWIW), irrespective of the Photobucket debacle.:frown:





PS: Oh -- what are you going to employ in the way of crossovers? Just curious.

I believe you may be on to something there mhardy6647.

Just spoke with Jose the other night and I'm exciting for the journey he is about to embark on.

Save that before picture Jose. It's going to be an epic before and after.

You know, you could have the seller send them directly to Bill at GPA to save on shipping... just thinking.

That is a genius idea Anthony! I'll email the seller to see if he will do that for me.

My babies have been dropped of by the seller and should arrive in a day or two!
I emailed and called GPA put no response yet, they must be quite busy. I'll post some more pics once I receive them.

GPA just did a complete overhaul of their website, so they're definitely doubling down on the Altec repair business. My guess is the response has been a bit overwhelming.

I know that everytime I've sent drivers off for service there's usually about a 2-3 week turnaround in getting them back to me.

I've spoken with Bill at GPA several times on the phone, he's a very knowledgeable and nice guy.

You're in good hands Jose.

Been my experience an that of others, thatt best way to get a hold of Bill at GPA is by phone and that there is rarely a response to an email.

Audionut - This is exciting stuff, Jose. :)

I'm really looking forward to following your "604" adventure. :)

Thanks THFN, it will be an adventure for sure!
I have some rather large boxes sitting near my front door at the moment, they were dropped off earlier by a "Doug Hefernin"? Debating on wether to open them now or tomorrow.🔈🔈🤔
