Finally up for sale is my very last pair of great sounding 1970's Large Advent Utility speakers
Remember those infamous 2-way air suspension design speakers in the 1970s', designed by Henry Kloss?
Showing how East Coast "Boston sound" should articulate.
The original Advent Utility Cabinets are in wood grain vinyl finish in nice shape.
3 position toggle switch on rear for tweeter control.
Making good visual impression, grilles are well color matched, both with the original 1970's Advent logo badges!
The famous original fried egg Orange tweeters
and the square magnets woofers (new surround) are intact and working well and sound harmonically rich even as of today.
Cabinets show signs of shelf-wear, blemishes or corner damages but nothing major.
This pair of excellent shape speakers on sale is in the original Advent Utility Cabinets with the nice color scheme in dark wood grain vinyl finish.
3 position toggle switch on rear for tweeter control.
Covers are in great shape, with Logo badges.
The original "fried egg" orange tweeters and Masonite ring woofers with new surrounds are intact like brand new!
All component drivers work well and sound great.
Cabinets have little or no dents, scuffs or corner damage.
Circa early 1970's Large Advent Speakers.
This pair of very good condition original Advent Utility Cabinets in dark walnut wood grain vinyl finish.
3 position toggle switch on rear for tweeter control.
Covers are in great shape, with Logo badges.
The original "fried egg" orange tweeters and Masonite rings
All component drivers work well and sound great.
Cabinets had little dents on the corners only on one speaker, which was repaired by previous owner.
The enclosure cabs measures 25.50" x 14.25" x 11.75" / 26"x14"x11.5" 17Kg
All Woofer surrounds were completely replaced due to foam disintegration back in 2015
These speakers do work flawlessly the entire time that they have been used since the 1970's.
These speakers have been meticulously cared for and only have one minor corner dent.
Shipping is out of the question due to their size and weight so the only economical method of purchase is for personal pickup in Toronto.
Local GTA cash pickup preferred
$200.00/pair firm

Also have a pair of EPI EPICURE model M SPEAKERS built with wood cabs
The EPI 100 loudspeaker is a timeless classic indeed. Originally designed in the late 1960s by Winslow Burhoe, it was his first "module" speaker. The module concept was a woofer and tweeter that had the same efficiency, and frequency reponses that matched each other. The woofer was designed to roll off on its own at 1800 Hz. The tweeter was designed to do the same thing. The only need for a "crossover" was something to protect the tweeter from bass frequencies, hence the incredibly simple use of a ten microfarad capacitor to do the job.
This model stayed in production well into the 1980s, selling hundreds of thousands of units, and for several years was highly recommended by Consumer Reports.
Masonite tweeter There were three distinct generations (with plenty of overlap) - the first featured a tweeter built on a five inch diameter Masonite® face plate, with a paper concave dome. The voice coil was centered and cooled by four tiny pieces of foam and some silicone heat sink compound. This version's woofers usually had butyl rubber surrounds and are often still working forty years later. The coarse weave black or medium brown grills were glued and nailed on, and sported the brass badge with the round, stylised "EPI" logo. Most of these were made in walnut veneer only, and were referred to as the100M or M100.
Gold ring tweeter The next generation upgraded the tweeters to a phenolic dome, and incorporated Ferrofluid® cooling and damping. These were built on a five inch round black plastic faceplate with two gold rings and the EPI "wave" logo. The woofers changed over to foam surrounds, and the grills were held on with Velcro, and later, plastic-framed with mounting pegs and sockets. The badge changed to a gold plastic bold face "EPI" with a horizontal line crossing all three letters featuring a stylized sine wave in the middle of the P. They were sold as the "100V" in a simulated walnut vinyl finish and the 100 M in real walnut veneer.
Red ring tweeter Finally, in the early 1980's, the whole model line got a face lift, and all but the 100 acquired an "A" prefix to their model numbers. The tweeter face plate was slightly smaller in diameter, at about 4 3/8 inches, with a red ring visible around the dome and the EPI logo molded into it. For some reason this version its own page even though technically it was never called the A100.
These were only available in a walnut vinyl finish.
The spring-clip input terminals were finally tolerable.
The Epicure 10 was basically exactly the same speaker system, with a different tweeter face plate and blue woofers, which existed for some marketing purpose lost in the mists of time.
Response: 45 to 18k Hz
RMS Power: 12 to 50 watts (very conservative rating)
Crossover: 1800 Hz
1" air spring dome tweeter
Impedance: 4 ohms DC, 8 ohms nominal
Dimensions: 21" x 11" x 9"
Weight: 25 lbs
The Model 100 was EPI's first and most popular speaker. Winslow Burhoe designed it as the ultimate bookshelf loudspeaker. As an acoustical engineer, his technical criteria for performance was extended frequency response (the ability to reproduce the very lowest and very highest musical frequencies), extreme linearity (the speaker's ability to reproduce any signal fed to it accurately with no exaggeration or deterioration), excellent dispersion (filling any listening room with equal musical energy over the whole range of the speaker), minimum distortion, both harmonic and intermodulation (to eliminate listening fatigue), and a cabinet compact enough to fit on any bookshelf.

The fact that Winslow Burhoe achieved all his goals in a speaker selling at a modest price is proof of his status as one of the foremost speaker designers in the audio industry. The Model 100's accurate tonal balance combined with exceptional dispersion makes it an ideal speaker for people who really enjoy live music. Whether you are listening to a full symphony, thunderous rock or progressive jazz, the Model 100 almost disappears, leaving only the music; an accomplishment very few speakers, regardless of price, can equal.

"The sound quality of the EPI 100 was very natural and "easy". The more we listened to it, the better we liked it, and it was one of the most faithful reproducers we have had the pleasure of hearing ... the EPI 100 is comparable in most respects to some of the best - and most expensive speaker systems we have tested ..." Stereo Review, May 1970

Its compact size allows it to be placed almost anywhere in the listening room. However, EPI strongly recommends, for optimum performance, locating this speaker in any two sided plane (on the floor or ceiling against a wall or in a bookshelf, closest to either side wall). Hand rubbed walnut cabinets and rich black grills give this stereo pair a handsome, contemporary appearance that should blend well with any decor. The Model 100's extremely high power handling ability enables it to fill even the largest of listening rooms with surprising ease.

As proof of each Model 100's performance, EPI packs an individual frequency response graph with each speaker, showing the extension of its frequency response and its linearity. No other speaker manufacturer that we know of does this.
