    Please help a newbie out. I just bought these 605As and would love thoughts on them. They sound great powered by both my Kenwood KA 7100 and my Pioneer SX 650...have yet to hook them up to my SX 1250 and I can't wait. I appreciate any help! Cheers

    I agree with bowtie427ss. I have no idea what you’re talking about. By the way, welcome to AK!

    Sorry for the confusion, I was going by what (mis)information the seller had given me...after looking around at pics I see that they are actually 605As. Thanks for your time and understanding! I'll send pics when my phone recognizes my password! Cheers

    605A's are a different story, they are coaxial 15" drivers and I bet they sound nice. They are also a 2 way design. Do you have any tube amps? I have found that Altec's and tubes are a match made in heaven.

    On edit: See if you can edit your first posting to change the heading from Altec 6003 to Altec 605A.

    They were 16 ohms possibly and 3 or 4 db less efficient than the 604 as I remember. There are a couple of Altec web sites and Lansing websites where you can learn more.
