Re: Advent 6003 speakers

often thought as a maestro in a better box is in fat completely NOT true.
though all the drivers look the same they are not infact the same.
the tweeters have some slight differences in construction from what i see on the back the mids on the maestro are open from the back if you peal off the felt (and you can push out any pushed in part of the cone) and need to me mounted in there own enclosure or tube inside the cabinet so the other drivers do not effect it.
the 6003 are solid in the back.
so you could use a 6003 mid in a maestro but not the other way around.
the woofers are the only thing I'm not totally sure about as i do not have the original 6003s to compare with .
but the biggest differences is the incredibly high quality crossover in the 6003 with open air indictors and build on marinate just as the early ones were and not part of the placated conecctor plate in back.
i have pics to share if any one is interested.

Re: Advent 6003 speakers

Dartman67,
I just got a pair this past weekend for $100 and was surprised at how "soft" they sound. Not sure how they are supposed to sound??? Is there any brightness to them cuz these sound a bit muffled. Maybe a recap is in order. Before I dig into them would it be possible for you to send the pics refered to in this post, would you know where to get the schematics for them. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
jc

Re: Advent 6003 speakers

The "Advent Sound" is typically neutral and natural sounding.
Therefore, nothing is supposed to "jump" out at you, impress you, like many other speakers can do (most likely a selling point).
The Advent neutrality is supposed to allow you to listen to the music, and forget the speakers are even there.

In my opinion, that's what a speaker *should* do.... add or subtract nothing to the sound.

Oh, and this "recap" thing has really gone crazy on the internet - it's not a "fix-all" magic bullet that everyone claims is.
