  1. Thanks for the info Cloth Ears. If my memory serves me well, these were "interchangeable" with the main model JBL drivers of the time, so it might be that I could find an appropriate JBL recone kit to fit. As you say, a different surround could deliver a lower resonant frequency and deliver performance like the L475. I am pretty certain the chassis and magnet assembly are identical between the L479 and L475. Similar weight and magnet material. Whether it is worth the trouble is another question though !
  2. Yes, I think you're right Clothears. I suspect these have the same basket and magnet assembly, both 1.51kg AlNiCo magnets, 4" edgewound copper voice coils. But different resonant frequencies, low frequency extension and very different power handling. Different cone and surround assemblies would deliver these different performance parameters. With an appropriate recone these could become L475s. I wonder where I'd find a couple of those recone kits?
  3. Hi folks, I have a pair of Fostex L479 15" drivers I am planning to finding a new home for. Thinking of getting them refurbished to get them like new again. Basic spec is 15" diameter, 4" edgewound copper voice coil, 1.5Kg Alnico Magnet, resonant frequency is 40Hz, sensitivity is 97 dB/1 Watt/1 metre, power handling 400 Watts, Impedance 8 ohms. Does anyone know someone who might be interested in these and what they might be worth?
  4. sorry, I posted this in the wrong place. It is actually for sale and will be listed in the classifieds as soon as the ad is approved by the moderator. Apologies !
  5. I intended using this with my Manley Mahi power amps, but never did, so it has been in storage for a number of years. It was an ex demo unit when I acquired it, so has very few hours on it. 'Tis a thing of beauty and needs to find an owner who will love and appreciate it. It is in its original packaging, with original valves and owner manual.
  6. My pleasure LogicprObe. I hope it finds a good new home 🙂
  7. Sorry to disappoint you, Tubularbells, but no, it's not the RC Version, so there's no remote
  8. I guess this is another example of innovative circuit design from Manley. There is no reason why you cannot use them in this way; they can certainly deliver plenty of output current in this kind of application.
  9. Further information: 2 x 20 watts RMS into 4 ohms. Sounds much bigger than its spec would suggest. This amp is as new, in original carton, with its under desk mounting bracket Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved

  11. Thanks for the welcome John. There is a Denon DP45F, a Lehmann Headphone amp, a renovated Sansui AU101 and some Revox Piccolo speakers in use around the place too
  12. Hi, I have been around audio since my dad built a "hi-fi" amp in 1965 with 6J5, 6J7 and 6V6 valve lineup. I have worked in the pro-audio industry for decades and am now retired. Current system is an odd-bod collection of bits collected over the years; Sony CD player into SPDIF input on a Bryston pre-amp and a pair of Manley mono blocks driving Tannoy Ardens. Pretty happy with this setup, although I keep a pair of home-made MOSFET power amps around (Graham Cohen designed the hybrid in it) for a bit of variety. I have a couple of bits of excess gear to find new owners for, and this
