Large Advent speakers, "Utility" all original (and working) woofers and tweeters ("fried-egg" orange tweeter types if you know the history) with new grille cloth, some minor nicks, sound excellent, best driven with a recommended 20W minimum (for an avg 12'x 15' room or 3,000 cu ft) to 120W maximum audio system (at 8 Ohm). A crossover switch in the back of each unit allows for Normal, Extended or Decreased high frequency adjustment. Utility models are plain vinyl-clad versions of the more expensive "bull-nose" walnut cabinets, with identical components and performance specs. 10" woofer cones are designed to be set in the 12" metal baskets, allowing extended bass, by design. Note that one of the new woofer surrounds was reinstalled in convex instead of concave mode, no effect on sound. Serial numbers 201709 and 201744 are very close, likely from the same production batch. Cabinets are good cosmetically (hey, they're 45 years old), excellent structurally,
