Default New "old" speakers are home.

Hello Folks,

Here are my new speakers.
Inspired by the Shindo Latour.
Woofers : 416-8B
Compressions : TAD 2001.
Horns : P Audio.
To me they sound like a more refined Altec 19, with deeper and fuller bass, and sweeter and more extended treble.
Their image is huge and extremely focused.
Big "American" sound with lots of weight and texture, but still very refined.
During the last years I became an "Altec addict."
