Buy all components set on ebay about three years ago, probably found in a storage auction because there were insects in some cases, but the product is new, without any damage. and they sold right through ebay. I clean them and everything looks new.Sweet stash. Did you buy at a store that was closing or something? There was a time I was hunting for a set of those DC 6.1. Other than the component speakers, I think you and I are an even match. Don't get me wrong I'd still love to have a set of those components. Nice fan shrouds you have too by the way.
The more I think about it, you've actually got me beat. I don't collect the silver series obvious. To me that was the last of anything decent from the LANZAR.
From what I understand is the newer sliver ones with the hump are zed. That link you have about his history is really old. When they switched to the flat silver ones is when he stopped. Can not Confirm. Just from what I have understood from reading online.I'm constantly on eBay looking for OS LANZAR, never saw those.
Thank god they upgraded those xovers in rev b.
Zed had no hand in the slicer Optis.
Here's a link on the history of Zed from the man himself. The years he worked for LANZAR are too soon for the silver ones. It was the LXR/LZ series by the time frame.

Well that's good to know. I don't think I would want my name on something made on the cheap. Although I have heard that they were some pretty decent amps. Even if they were made on cheap I wonder if the design makes up for it.On the Old school LANZAR facebook page is was confirmed that Zed designed the silver Optis but did not build them. LANZAR asked Zed to design an amp that was reliable but made with the cheapest parts at a cheap price point. LANZAR also did they didn't want his manner on the board. Designed cheaply, if I were Zed, I wouldn't want my name on the board anyway.
This was direct from a guy that worked next to Zed at LANZAR.
Just got this in the mail today. This is the only one I've ever seen, not sure what gen amps this goes with. LXR's or LZ's? This thing is huge, it's a lot bigger than it looks in pics. It's about 12"L x 6"W. The knobs are the size of nickels.
This is what I came up with for bandpass boxes. The terquoise is what WinISD recommends. The pink is close to what my taste are and the yellow is a 6th order modified by me.Thank you for the quick reply,
- there is no orange or red surround it is black
there are no flames
- the name is in red,
with red-white-blue lines
American Crafted Performence in blue under it
- on the back there is Lanzar Pro Plus Series and Kevlar Cone
- on the side is LP 12 4ohms - Serial #L 101870
- spade terminals was the word i'm looking for, that is correct
So I got the feeling we are getting pretty much to what this is, and 98db sounds Pro to me.
Guess I can use a bigger amp in the future, my monoblock is 200w but it's a start.
Will look into WinISD and again thank you very much!
