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

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

JM,

I heard a set of Valencia (416Z-16 , 806-16A w/aftermarket diaphragms, 811-A horn, 800Hz x-overs stock wirings) at a local vintage hi-fi retailer. The back panels didn't have the extra mod blocks

They had a soft , rolled off top end.

Those speakers need some EQ to flatten out the mids, maybe the 30923 altec compensation circuit would work and could be done for cheap $$$.

Upgraded to 802's, still try the compensation circuit.

YMMV.
