Hey,

Thread about M70 began here: https://forum.beoworld.org/forums/t/34886.aspx  . To not mix in threads I decided to put it here.

I bought my Beovox M70 , I did not expect much from the state though they played nice. After buying and the first hours in the house spent listening, I decided to look at them more. They are from one pair (matching serial numbers)

 

The boxes are not damaged :

Speakers and suspensions look good without abrasions, dents and holes in the paper:

The grilles are whole and not broken, although they have small abrasions on one:

and inside....

Crossovers - no repairs, no visible signs of damage, both the same:

SEAS woofers looks like new, with no problem with terminals:


The same with Peerless uniphase - without problem with magnets.

 

Now, after these few photos I have questions:

- whether recap is necessary in crossovers ??

- is there any canvas that was covered with grills M70 ?? I only have a new stretchy acoustic material, in Infinity it looked like the original but here it is different and I do not know what the final effect will be.

- whether the acoustic parameters of the box do not change after the insertion of modern cable terminals with latches or screws?

- how to mount the grills, now they are fastened with self-adhesive Velcro, but you can see it and it is not perfect ??

Thanks. 

In addition to the sound and appearance, there is one more important reason for the renovation.

M70 in the living room gave an unpleasant odor in the air. Confusion of the old basement with the composition of waste paper. Like a warehouse with old, damaged books.

To eliminate it, I had to replace the filling, vacuum the inside of the boxes, change the material for the grill, beeswax gave the whole a pleasant natural aroma.
