    Fried Speaker Badge Replacements

    The more I look at my new ones, the better I like them. Thick, substantial, perfectly made. And the least expensive thing I could buy to polish up my speakers and replace the missing one--which I'm blaming the cat for. I would never lose one. They are stick on types, not posts like JBL...

    Fried Speaker Badge Replacements

    Well, I did too, but being new here I didn't think it would be to cool to say so. lol. Wait til you see my new post of what happens when you purchase Hiquphon tweeters. And not from EBay.

    Fried Speaker Badge Replacements

    Not shilling for this Ebay seller, but he has custom designed replacement Fried speaker badges to match the originals on my G/2 speakers. I think these badges match other models from Fried, but cannot swear to that. This designer already had a line out and I bought them, saw the differences...

    Pioneer CT-F1250 - Rebuild the take-up motor (RMX-047 or 047A)

    That makes two us. I have a mint 1250 also. Perfect appearance, but seeing the comments about "due to non-use" or something like that made me decide I better try mine out again for the first time in a veeerrry long time. I also have the SA 8500 and the TX 9800. All from 1980-81. The amp has...

    I still do like it very much, don't even bother comparing to anything new. Just had the amp serviced due to speaker driver and tweeter failure. Mine was all acquired from the same dealer, at the same time in 1980-1981. I posted it elsewhere here but don't see it. My room is 14' x 21' by 9'...

    Thanks for the lifeline. I may need it after the bench test of all my drivers yesterday, determined that they apparently all failed at the same time due mainly to overheated voice coils, tears, along with the death of both Hiquphon tweeters which didn't need cutting open and testing, since they...

    Looks like its time for a cleaning, although for 16 year old horse teeth, these are really good.

    Aaah I see. "From NBC Studios in Beautiful Downtown Burbank" was Johnny Carson's line because at the time, Burbank was boring as hell after hosting the Tonight Show from New York City, he was pissed about the show being transferred out here, and he enjoyed his after work beverage and had to...

    Mikey, those were really helpful instructions; thank you so much. I know they must be basic to nearly everyone else, I'm just never on sites where I participate so I never bother to learn them. This one seems different. Those photos seem huge, so I hope they were embedded properly.

    BTW, anyone interested in seeing a short video of Robby Krieger's studio? Got that too, not the control room or the isolation booths. Added: I learned after the fact that my captions for the photos did not come with them. The studio shots are in Robby Krieger's recording studio here on the...
