    hello hive!

    I’m working on some Avid 330 speakers. Original owner who somewhere along the line took them to a “professional” repair shop (twice) which then took his original tweeters and mids and “upgraded” them with other parts, making these FrankenAvids

    Does anyone know a model number or OEM part number for the original tweeters and mids? They look like Audax, but not sure.

    Thanks!

    I snapped a few pics of the mids and tweeter of my 330's, hope this helps (not much to go off of, tweeter says Avid B&G, Mid has Avid and serial number).

    Interesting. Made in USA and 3-hole mounting plate means they are probably Phase Technology OEM. Thanks! This is something!

    Those look like custom dome drivers for Avid but I have something similar in a pair
    of Large Advents that someone turned into 3-ways. One person says that is a Magnat
    tweeter and I know that I've seen it before, and thought that it was made in Germany but
    then again it might have been from Radio Shack - anyone?

    Thanks Pete - I agree, probably an OEM build for Avid. The owner's prior shop installed some nice Dynaudio midranges in there, which I think I can use. I am contemplating using a 3D printer to replicate the shape of the old face plates. And pairing the Dynaudios with some Morel MDT30s that I got from @thedelihaus
