This is my last pair of speakers I’ll make for our new Surround Sound TV room. Like the earlier pair I made I needed to determine the optimum volume for these particular speakers. After all the calculations, I designed the box that was closest to this volume.
First off, I had to repair the speakers. Let me back up a little, i obtained these speakers way way back in the 1970’s! I safeguard them while I was in the Army and during many many many moves. They were bubble wrapped inside towels all this time. When I finally got around to needing them they were in horrible shape the foam had deteriorated so badly that I almost tossed them into the trash. I checked YouTube to see if anyone had repaired damage like mine and discovered speakers can be repaired and there is an actual repair kit for my speakers. I visited “Simply Speakers” ( http://www.simplyspeakers.com/ ) website and purchased their repair kit. I watched their video and followed their well written instructions. Time and money well spent after the repair the speakers looked new and sound terrific.
Thanks for taking the time to look, any comments are eagerly awaited.
