More Speaker upgrades

After my recent issue with my old speakers (see here) I decided to continue upgrading my Speakers with modern components.

I already modified the wires leading to the boxes.
See here.
And here.

And today I replaced the smaller mid section speakers with ones from an old surround system I had lying around.

The donors.

The old surround speakers.

The old speakers seemed to have a surface made of paper.

Old vs.new...

Old vs.new…

The new ones seem to be of a better design.

I wired it all accordingly and it does sound well.

This blows…

My Speakers have served me well so far and have delivered a nice sound.

Until THIS happened.

Dissolved...

Dissolved…

Yes. Due to old age, my speakers dissolved recently and needed replacing.
It’s a good thing that I live near a Thrift shop as they are called in the states.

One of my local recycling centres / second hand stores.

I got a nice newer pair for both boxes for just 10 euros.
Here is a close up of one of them.

Try getting a modern set of speakers fixed that easy 😉

All I needed was a set of screw drivers, a soldering iron and some needle nose pliers.^^


Nice sound

Now that they are finally finished, I decided to give my remapped speakers a test run.

The result sounds quite good 🙂


More speaker upgrades

I recently added the finishing touches to my Speakers by placing fabric over the wires and soldering some neat looking plugs to it.


Mapping out music

I decided to give some speakers a new life hooked to my amp by freeing them
from their scratches and giving them a new surface.

Tools needed: Small roller, scissors, carpet cutter
Materials: Spray adhesive, various maps with the same scale

What do you think? 🙂
