RE: Petite Onken 414 & 802D + 32B

I took a leap of faith with the Onken cabinets as a pair came up for sale locally including the Altec drivers I also wanted.

Congrats ... this would be a dream come true for me :)

I'm curious whether you've experimented with solid state amplification? My understanding is that this is what the original Onken (and probably the scaled-down "Petite") was designed for. (I've been told that this is a point that got lost when the original article was translated from French to English and perhaps abbreviated a bit.) Anyway, you might give it a try ... easier than increasing the size of the cabinet! :)
