General:
You're not likely to find a set of Granadas in this condition. These probably sat in the same living room, in the same spot, for their entire life. They also don't suffer from the common water damage from having a plant placed on top. Even the tops are superb.

In our listening room these performed flawlessly and produced a full-range sound rivaling some modern speakers.

Simple 2-way tried and true horn design made famous by Altec Lansing.

All drivers are perfect as you would expect showing no signs of aging or stress.

This speaker system is slightly smaller than 873A Barcelona.

They came in two versions, and this is the single amplifier version with internal crossover (the more convenient of the two).

These can ship flat-rate Freight anywhere within the lower 48 US States for $600. If you're outside of this area please contact us for a quote as we ship worldwide. Local courier also available, as is local pickup.

Brand Background:
Altec Lansing is a company with a rich history in the audio industry. Founded in 1936, the company has a long-standing reputation for producing high-quality speakers and audio equipment. In the early days, Altec Lansing primarily focused on producing speakers for the movie theater industry. The company’s speakers were used in many theaters across the United States, and they quickly became known for their exceptional sound quality.

During World War II, Altec Lansing shifted its focus toward producing audio equipment for military use. The company produced speakers and amplifiers for use in tanks, airplanes, and other military vehicles.

After the war, Altec Lansing returned to producing speakers for the consumer market. In the 1950s, the company introduced a line of home speakers that were designed to be used with the new generation of stereo phonographs. These speakers were known for their accurate bass and clean extended treble, and they quickly gained popularity among music enthusiasts.

Testing Process:

Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.

After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.

Our subwoofer evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, cone damage, or rubbing voice coils. We also inspect the input connections for damage.

After the initial visual inspection, we connect the sub at our bench and perform a sine wave sweep from about 200Hz down to around 10Hz. During this sweep we are listening for excessive rattle or other signs of improper function. If the sweep passes, we then increase the input level to evaluate how the woofer performs at high output levels. If the woofer has built in crossover features or multiple connection options these features are tested at this time.

We complete the subwoofer evaluation by feeding the unit with an audio signal in conjunction with our house music system to see how it responds to low frequency content in real world conditions while paired with a full range system.
