    Hey Trevorjon!
    Thanks for the info!
    I'll have to give them a try.
    Speaking of cool ADS stuff, I just received these from Aker soundmotor.
    He told me only 50 or so were made, one time only, for promo purposes for dealers, sales reps etc, though the promos never made it.
    Very cool to have a small piece of ADS history.

    Oh!.... Also my son Ben said that the Perreaux service guy is finished with his monster amp (after over nine months) so well be heading out to pick it up in the next weeks or month. 500w in 8 ohm....1000 into 4. Well see how the 910s sound with that kind of current! I know they thrive on 300w from my Perreaux 3150. Cant wait!

    Yup! Probably meant to be sewn onto promo jackets, which according to soundmotor, ended up not happening.

    Hey Glenn what happened to the cabinets from Mike's parted 910s? Who is Mike is in this case? One of mine has some dings on the top that will be very hard to steam out fully when I ever get around to refinishing them. And because of the curved corners I would have to inset new veneer, which would be challenging.

    Mike is the gent who's 1590's with the rosewood veneer I restored. That's how I got my L980's.
    Mike may still have the cabs. His AK handle is mike0565 if you want to shoot him a conversation.

    As the specs show, the 910's bass goes deeper, and in person, amazingly deep. When I'm seriously cranking them, my neighbor told me he felt it in his kitchen and some dishes were vibrating in the cabinets!
    The 980's high end is a bit better, which I attribute to the newer drivers designs, and the bass is also outstanding and deep, just not as deep as the 910's.

    Specs may go deeper on rhe 910, however the 980 does do fast and hard, especially when biamped, making for Pleasent experience as well,though probably not fair if me to compare a stock 910 against The 980 biamped given one is a single woofer design. Ive also biamped the 2030, and 1590/2. Soon to have the 910 biamped one the cards arrive, though i do not "expect" them to do anything other than what they do, it likely will not be the same performance as the others. For sure all the dual woofers cleannup substancially when biamped. It always impresses me when reading the back of an LP and see the 910 listed as the monitor used in the studio. As it shares the same mid and tweet as the 710 and 810, i can see why they sound similar. Which is why i will do the surround sound with them, albeit temporary. Pretty fond of the current Chapman setup. I will use the program setting on the c-2000 set to 500 hz

    Glenn, that patch is in the realm of super nerdy cool for us audio geeks.

    I think if I had such a patch, I would find an old blue blazer from Goodwill and have it lightly sewn on the pocket so you will look all official and such at any next audio gathering. :beatnik:

    We need an emoji with nerdy glasses, the beatnik is about as close as we have for now.

    NOTE: Glenn, since I recently picked up two pair of L910's, I thought I would go back through this thread and WHOA! You need to do some serious maintenance and clean up your picture posts. Through page 11 and the only pics now showing are from Dru. All of your externally linked pics are gone with your expired account. This is another poster child example of why to NOT use externally hosted pics and just post them to the AK forum.

    Hey Audio,
    The patch is way cool. Being so rare, I probably will leave it as is, though I dig the blazer idea. There's an ADS group on Facebook. There's a gent who's making very nice pins.
    4 910's playing at once must sound incredible!
    Regarding the pics, yeah I know I need to go through the whole thing and delete and replace all the pics, a real PITA!
    FYI-There is a browser patch that fixes the PB blocking, for now. I downloaded it for Firefox and it works great. Google photobucket image restore and you'll see it. Works for multiple browsers.

    Bass output on my 910's is fast and hard and deeper, (the beauty of two 10 inch woofers) than the 980's. 980's kick ass no question.

    "The beauty of two 10 inch woofers"
    2 makes it faster? Automatically, accross the board? Or just the 910?

    Like the bass speed on the l1590 as well! Best friend has same response on the 910''s. 810''s are quick as well just not as fast as 1590''s or 910's. I have found as 5 of my friends have , Biamping is the bomb on these speakers (correctly done ie: external xover). Really brings out the best in these speakers.

    An assumption from reading many comments regarding moving smaller woofer mass.

    810s (dual 7" woofers) are not quite as fast or tight as 880s (single 9.5" woofer), I'll say that right now from my A/B comaprisons between the two. That said, pretty much all the other ADS dual woofer speakers I've heard (1230, 1290, and M12) seem to be very fast and tight. Personally I think ADS learned from the 810 design and refined the low end output in later designs. Just a guess though.

    P.S. Don't get me wrong I am beginning to love the way the 810s sound, I have been listening to them straight on for 3 days now, after my A/B comparison last weekend, and they sound terrific. 880s may be a little cleaner low end but the 810s really do punch AND they have a liquid midrange that's to die for.

    Once your ears get acclamented to this sound (as mine did) it just leaves me speachless. I loved the 810''s but when I found the l1590''s, holy crap it a different level of sound completely. Beware though they are very source dependent ie: week source equal week sound good source hold, on to something cause it will knock you over.
