In early 2008 I had the opportunity to evaluate a loaned Altec Lansing 604-8K utilizing the CLIO system. The driver was an early unit (serial # 3403, date stamped DEC 1982) and was equipped with the original factory low frequency cone and high frequency diaphragm. This model was manufactured by Altec from the early 1980s thru the company’s demise in the late 1990s and was marketed for use as a studio monitor, musician’s stage monitor and a premium ceiling speaker. The 8K had 8 ohm impedance voice coils and was supplied with a dual EQ passive crossover that had first been introduced for use......
Great Plains Audio was born out of the Altec Lansing corporation in 1998. It carries forward the loudspeaker design and manufacturing tradition that began with Western Electric in the early 20th century. Great Plains Audio is the only place where the legendary Western Electric/Altec Lansing sound reproduction technologies live on.
