Altec Lansing 19 Spekaer Re-Cap Advise




Just wondering if I could get some professional advise on these speakers. I picked them up last week and did a comparison to my re-capped Pioneer HPM-150 speakers played through McIntosh MC-30's and Fisher C-90 pre-amps that were re-built by Mike Samra. I have Jantzen Superior Z-caps in the Pioneers with Black Hole #5 sound insulation. They sound great with the Macs. I typically play vinyl on a Thorens TD-160 with I believe is a Denon 110 cartridge. Anyway the Altec 19's crossover is original. I noticed that the bass in the Altecs is much deeper than the Pioneers but there is absolutely no high end detail. I paid $1300.00 for the 19's and the cabs are in great shape. I would like to keep the 19's but am not sure if after a full re-cap that would cost me $500.00 to $600.00 that they would be as good as my Pioneers. Should I sell them and recoup my money or keep them and re-cap them? Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks, Steve
