Outstanding Efficiency
Perfect for the vacuum tube amplification lover or enthusiasts of the latest digital amplification technology – anyone who appreciates the benefits of truly classic audio engineering.

The A7 drivers contain powerful magnetic structures, precisely spaced magnetic gaps and optimal material selections.

Model 515 LF driver features edgewise wound copper-clad aluminum ribbon wire in its voice coil. Model 902 HF driver uses copper ribbon wire. Flat wire voice coils, a cornerstone of accuracy and efficiency, have been used by Altec® longer than anyone else.

No-Compromise Design
Incredibly dynamic and accurate… the new Voice of the Theatre effortlessly achieves performance that will move you.

Only the finest American made components were qualified for the latest A7.

The 902 HF driver uses the Altec Tangerine™ Radial Phase Plug.

Hydraulically formed aluminum HF diaphragm with tangential compliance.

Handmade Construction
Durable, sonically excellent 13-layer Baltic Birch plywood cabinet, manufactured to the highest modern standards.

Combinations of the bass reflex and horn enclosure offer proven superior quality in sound reproduction. The advantages of the extended bass response of the bass reflex enclosure, coupled to a short, radiating exponentially formed front loaded horn without folds, further extends the low bass range.

Completed with a Voice of the Theatre rugged black splatter finish

Faithful Engineering
Careful attention to the smallest details, capturing all the sonic excitement that made the original a legend.

Altec Lansing relied on original cabinet drawing.

Drivers and sectoral horns are cast off of original Altec Lansing tools.

Altec's Golden Sample was acoustically matched to an original A7. All of our efforts were focused on achieving the same signature sound for which The Voice of the Theatre is famous.
