There's a couple of pair here:
Allison speakers, Home Audio, Vintage Electronics items on eBay.com
The CD-6 speakers have a damaged driver. The PB 8.2 speakers are the new version of my AL-115's. I love my AL-115's! Posted Image

In case you don't know about it already, there's an Allison forum here:
The Classic Speaker Pages Discussion Forums (Powered by Invision Power Board)
You may find something around there. Do you already have some, and want more, or are you looking your first pair?

If I had the money, I'd be all over those PB 8.2's. They'd be a perfect match with mine. I'd use them as my rear speakers, and then all I'd need would be an Allison center.

I've tried to tell people about Allison speakers. Because they've never heard of them, they just ignore them. Their loss! It's really a shame........ Several people at AudioKarma.org, have Allisons, and have raved about them. Some found their's at Goodwill Outlet stores, or Salvation Army Outlets. Keep an eye on Craig's List too.
Good luck!

Yes, it's the top grill(e) from one of the speakers. It's beat up pretty bad, has a couple of long cracks and is missing a chunk off the edge, about an inch wide. It's been detached from the speaker and I haven't bothered to glue it back on. These plastic grills are pretty brittle, so if you have any kind of damage, it's probably a goner. I think I've seen a link somewhere where you can purchase a replacement. The exposed tweeter and midrange paper cones are a bit knocked in, but I don't detect any difference in sound from the other speaker. As far as function is concerned, no issues that I can tell.

You don't know how much I would love to have the AL-115s. I have a pair I've had for about 15 yrs. (oak finish), and I love them. The foam is falling apart on them now. Heck, I can't even afford the $20+ refoam kit right now, so I definitely can't buy a pair of speakers. Good luck selling them. Whoever buys them will be getting one heck of a speaker. Posted Image

How about a trade? I have the pair of AL-115s in my possession for either some cash or a good trade. Also have the AL-120 speakers (pair). Would be willing to trade if there's something i need or want. Also, I have a couple of actual "bookshelf" speakers. It's model number is REF-303BK made by Stanford Advanced Acoustic Technology (SAAT). I think SAAT was part of Allison or may have been owned or did own Allison before, not sure though. But anyways it's a pair of speakers that looks like actual books. Amazon used to sell them for $150 + shipping. Pretty good speakers if you ask me...

Allison Ones show up on eBay every once in awhile.
Y'all can go to audiokarma.org and ask there too. Several people there have Allison Ones, and other models.

This thread has a lot of action for speakers that supposedly no one has heard of Posted Image . I'm vaguely familiar with them but maybe I should investigate a little more. I'm mostly happy with what I have but there's no harm in learning something new!
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.
