Electro Voice Sentry IV

I'm not sure what took me so long to post this speaker from Electro Voice. Very similar to a Klipsch Belle performance looks close as well. I dig the baby cheek type tweeter. Grab a pair of these and a nice tube amp for dam good sound.

Electro-Voice - Build The Georgian - Do It Yourself!

This original document was sent to me by Klipsch forum member Thebes. It is really cool to handle the real documents. This is a really big post but I'd rather not split it out

Finally an article written for me but back in 1961. 
How do they sound? What do they cost? And do you really need them? YES!

Forrest's EV Patrician 800 Resurrection


Check out these resurrected Patrician 800s. These beauties fell into the hands of Forrest for almost nothing and couldn't have happened to a better person. Forrest was the first person I met at an audio event with an open mind and ears to new things. That first audio event was a blast though and I still talk to many of the people I met there. This may be one of the largest posts for this blog.


Here they are on arrival and some pics to see the condition they arrived in.
Here are some pics of the inards.
Oh man check out these EV T350 tweeters with one pound of alnico. These are top notch and specd 3500-23000hz.
The real show stopper in these speakers are the EV 30 inch woofer. These really dig deep and the condition is superb. I mean really T350 and EV 30s.
Now here are all the parts removed from the cabinets and you can tell the condition is wonderful.

The only parts that weren't in goood condition were the attenuators so Forrest contacted Bob Crites of Crites Speakers to figure out the attenuators and replaces the caps in the crossover. As usual Bob did great work. http://critesspeakers.com/

Forrest completely broke these down to clean repair and restore.
Here are the cabinets with the cabinets mostly back together and finish restored. These have been around and have some dings and scratches here and there but to me that is well earned character. I like the way he restored them the best he could but left the character. Nice work.

This is the fun part as all the parts start going back in to the cabinets.
This is the finished product with new grill cloth and beautiful finish. Just incredible.
WOW WOW WOW
Not that you can get a feel for sound quality via youtube but it is cool to see them playing.

Great work Forrest!!! I hope to hear these someday.


Just added this pic as Forrest just got them loaded into the corners. Very nice room for big speakers.
