Overall, the Flip is a good little portable speaker for small parties or taking your music with you on the go. It is highly likely the chassis was made in '65 and the amp assembled in '66. Although it isn't the same, I think with a few tweaks it could serve as a good enough temp to enjoy the speaker until a proper replacement comes out. Ask the seller for all the 's off the transformers. The Soundfreaq has deeper bass and a fuller, richer sound, but it is larger and not quite as convenient to carry and setup, though still very portable. So many products produced by Altec have a number beginning with 391.
For its size and portability this sound will really fill a big room with crystal clarity fullness and no fuzz or vibration. They should all be starting with that 6 for 1966 after the 606 which stands for Schumacher. So, start by clearing out a lot of that rubber, very carefully because the wires can be damaged if not careful. It had to be re-shipped by Amazon after a phone call. Very annoying if you're sitting the unit on a table. But the part in the link below, to me, was pretty decent. This speaker could satisfy my ear.
The Flip is an amazing little speaker. Thanks Amazon Prime for coming through when your shipper screwed up. I chose to keep the Soundfreaq mainly because of its deeper bass and I don't mind the larger size. I found no noticeable differences in the sound quality to justify the added expense of the Jambox. I sold it because, for me, it did not sound good. The device performs just as advertised. Pairing it up to the iPhone was a snap; it only lost connection for apps that go quiet when the phone goes into sleep mode on battery i.
That being said- the sound dock is much heavier, bigger and difficult to travel with than this awesome little speaker. I tried out the speakerphone option, and was disappointed that the default volume for bluetooth phone call-speakerphone mode it was not loud enough and I had to crank up the volume so the guy at the other end could hear me. Well, it only ever flashed blue for me after pressing for three, four, five seconds. For an hour of play every morning, there was enough battery to last the week unplugged.

The bass is relatively good, I am not a serious Hi-Fi guy but I can tell the difference. The devices comes in a wide array of colors, and also gives you the ability to receive and make phone calls through your connected device directly from the speaker. This is to be expected when the physical dimensions of the internal speakers are about 2 inches each. Power and volume buttons are easy to reach in either position. You'll notice that once you proceed to remove the first set of 10 screws 6 in the middle and 2 on the ends near the speakers it removes the exterior shell of the speaker. The 391 identifies Altec as the manufacturer, and the 244 indicated that the product was made in the 24th week of a year ending in 4, likely 1964 for a 414Z. Another clue on a later 60's speaker might be a tiny F punched into the foil label.
As I recall, George Martin Jim Lansing's brother was in charge of keeping track of serial numbers on Fletcher Drive, and on Casitas Avenue. Also Hofmannhp has been compiling a really great, more comprehensive, spreadsheet that will likely end up posted on the forum sometime in the future. Serial :12961 with a crossover network model N-1200. All of these are excellent, however each has its strengths and weaknesses. I ordered the part that Joshrawks21 put a link to.

Bluetooth note- easy connection and pretty reliable with both my iphone5 first generation and macbook pro. It's about the size of a Budweiser Tall-Boy. The Flip paired with my iphone quickly and easily. It was a tough decision whether to keep the Flip or the Soundfreaq, because they both sound great and are excellent values. The Charge 3 takes the party everywhere, poolside or in the rain, thanks to the waterproof design, durable fabric and rugged housing.

No need to make it harder for customers. My morning doesn't start without Morning Edition, but hotel radios never seem to work. For some sounds it was a perfect, like stepping back through time to a Memphis recording studio. To be fair, I like the shape of the Jambox. He entered all the serial numbers he had used each day in a small book he kept at his workbench. It has somewhat better, more detailed highs than the Soundfreaq and tight, punchy bass that is very impressive for its size.
Connect the device to a charger to see if that causes it to become responsive. The cord is long enough to keep it plugged in for longer use. I use this for teaching yoga and other classes, giving talks, and playing video media during presentations and clinical trainings. Marketing Google AdSense This is an ad network. I'm still heartbroken that someone ripped off my portable Bose sound dock which has far superior sound. You can try power-cycling the Flip, you can try throwing it against the wall something I was tempted to do on several occasions , nothing can be done to make it behave. I've never had it die on my while using for bbq's ect.
