Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

Rear Panel of a ALTEC VALENCIA , stock or modded??

Hi all,

We had a series of tornadoes hit the eastern part of the Kansas City area, two nights ago. Late last night, a fellow put up for sale on Craigslist, a pair of VALENCIAS, showing them in front of his mobile home, whose roof and side wall were missing - blown AWAY while he and his girl friend were inside, ( thinking they were living their last moments on this earth. )

They survived, lovely !!! - and the boyfriend offered his ALTEC Valencias late last night, and I was the first caller.

Picked them up today. Is that " doghouse " on the rear cover STOCK ?? This rather nice kid had this pair of ALTECS for ten years, bought 'em from the original owner.

If that back cover is not stock, it would appear to me that the original owner was modding the Valencias, perhaps to use the slightly larger 802D, ( which has a better, more extended top end than a 806-8A. ) An 806-8A came stock with this speaker.

When the original owner sold these to the nice young man, it came with the stock 806-8A, and ( non - stock ) 500 HZ crossovers, and 800 HZ 811 horns inside the enclosures.

IF the " doghouse " in the picture is not STOCK, I am IN BUSINESS .... to add larger 802s that will FIT..

These speakers are for a friend. I am working very happily with VOTT A7-800s these days, 515Bs and 802Ds.

But have NO practical experience with Valencias. Can anyone with Valencia experience tell me about my photographed rear cover, stock or modded ?? Many thanks in advance.
