Hi,

I bought pair of Beovox 3800 because I need trumpet stands for my Beovox 5702. When I refurbished stands I start listened Beovox 3800 and... it really good soundings loudspeakers. I started renovation... and finished. Here is short photostory.

BeO is like a good wine - the older the better...

After purchase:

I renovated trumpets 

I took it to my 5702

and I stayed with Beovox 3800

Because old veneer was really in bed condition

I decided to put new veneer I chose natural ebony macassar.

if you remeber, on back 3800 is only black MDF plate with hole and wire, I changed it to banana terminal

and after 2 working days I had really nice box. 

I put few layer of oil and beeswax, and meanwhile I prepareand grills. Old were broken, with dirt and holes.

and I decided to make completly new once

and now I have new look 

Because BeO didn't care about the appearance under grill, I use felt to hide square midton in a round hole

and put BeO sticker on terminal

I done inside too. All speakers were checked in service and put it back with new sealing tape

and I changed capacitors in crossovers

Now my Beovox 3800 are ready to listen and watching

Thanks,

I'm very surprised by sound of 3800. On my tube amplifier sounds better than 5702.

Because trumpets from 3800 went to my 5702, and because I still had ebony, and because pine shelves have always been in the garage and I never have time to hang up them, I made the stands to complete. They were standing on the floor and asking for it. Pictures do not reflect the whole effect but I will put a few photos to show them:

and session with speakers:

and with bigger brother:

Now music goes to the ears not to the knee Big Smile
