Advent Laureate

How good are the Advent Laureate speakers? Are they better that the large advents or worse? Any specs would be nice, thx.

I've used both, and the large advents were much better. THe laureates are nice speakers, and great if you have space constraints. THe bottom end isn't quite as good as the large advents, however that's apples and oranges.

The laureates have two 6.5" woofers (the same used in the baby advents) and one soft dome tweeter similar to the one used in the advent 5002. As for frequency response, I'm not certain but they are probably around 45hz - 20khz.

I was an advent fanatic at a time too. THey were affordable, sounded great and looked unique. My remaining two pair (large advent, and advent /1) went to my girlfriend along with a sui 5000x (after repairing the driver boards) for a anniversery present. She loves em, plays em everyday, and always thanks me.

The laureates I had went for 80 bucks to a nice gentleman who still sends me an e-mail once in awhile to tell me how good they sound.

DonP, seek out members re-edger or GordonW. They sell foam kits.

As for the receiver, a million good brands out there- Pioneer, Sansui, Kenwood, Marantz, Pioneer, Yamaha- the list could go on forever.

Heavy is good. Aluminum (or blackened aluminum) faceplates are good.

For solid state, I'd recommend no less than 20 wpc, but think that a minimum of 30wpc is better to aim for, if not 40, 50 or 65wpc.

Welcome to AK, and best of luck!
