    Yes, this thread was the inspiration for the restoration work I did on my 11's. If I've viewed this thread once, I've viewed it a hundred times. Ideas I blatantly stole include the use of T-nuts...

    I spent a few hours listening to them last night - holy smokes. It was worth it. Highs are smoother, bass is tighter. I was listening to the new Pink Floyd/Meddle remaster, and "Echoes" was...

    Resurrecting this thread... I just couldn't resist the opportunity to waste more time and money on these speakers, so I set about to upgrade the crossovers. I decided to swap out all the caps and...

    My risers are about as much bondo as MDF at this point. I could have just rebuilt them, but I had plenty of bondo, so I figured I'd just square up the corners where the MDF had swelled. See photo...

    Fuse holders are definitely original to the crossovers. 3/4 amp. One of them had a 3-amp fuse or some such thing when I got them. Lucky it wasn't wrapped in tinfoil.

    Forgot to mention that I've run these with a 125 wpc Kenwood Basic M1D amp and a 200 wpc Yamaha M-70 amp. These speakers can suck up some power. I think 100 wpc would be a minimum. They're also...

    I have always used Parts Express re-foam kits, except for one time when I re-foamed some Advent woofers. To me, the PE kits are a decent value. For 10" speakers or less, you get two different kinds...

    I'm thinking the "T" in the model name makes a difference. The speakers pictured in my Model 11/R.T.A. 11 owners manual are definitely the ones I have.

    Here's the image from the owner's manual.

    Beats me. I thought I read somewhere that Model 11/Monitor 11/RTA 11 were all different names for the same speaker. The PDF owner's manual I got for these says "Model 11 Real-Time Array Reference...

    Roger that. It is a more complex problem than a simple refoam job. I was picturing using the shims in combination with a centering jig on the magnet.

    Here are some photos of my Monitor 11's. The drivers are all dated March of 1982, and the cabinets are stamped '82 as well. You can see that I've disassembled the two bad MX6600x drivers. The only...
