  • Beolab Penta MK1 - Blow Out

    Hi Just acquired a pair of Mk1s - One of the them had been battered in a move (few visible small dents in steel paneling) and the owner said the amp blew when he tried to use it (Using a BC9500. He said it smoked). Listened with a direct connection (bypassing the amp) and one of the woofers was distorting;...

  • Beloab 150 / Penta Upgrades

    Hi all I've decided to carry out some work on my ageing Beloab 150 amps / Pentas. They were originally Beovox Penta Mk1's to which I later added Beloab 150's when they turned up. Anyway they have given good service over the years - and they are currently running cool. I feel though they are...

  • Penta - when is a bipolar not a bipolar?

    Just about to recap two pairs of Penta 1s and have four pcb 14 and four pcb 15s to compare. They are all in beautiful condition with no leaking capacitors or burned-out resistors - which makes me wonder if it it even worth recapping - is there a scientific way to test them? Surprisingly, the electrolytics...

  • Beovox RL140 / Penta Tweeters - Same Model?

    Hi all Just wondered if anyone could clear something for me? I wondered if the tweeters used in the RL140 and Penta Mk1 are the same? I have a Penta tweeter which is marked '25TNF H358' and a RL140 tweeter which is marked '25TNFX H358'. They look identical - aside from the missing 'X'...

  • Penta Refoam surround sizes.

    Hi all, I'm restoring a pair of Penta IIs. The component upgrades are going well - thanks Martin. I'm now doing the foam surrounds. I ordered a set from GoodHiFi which arrived promptly with good customer service and communication. I have three questions for people who have done this job: Do the...

  • Beolab Penta mains hum / buzz noise

    Hi all, Further to my project of upgrading my Beolab Penta IIs, I have completed all the cross-overs, and re-foams. The results are great. I used to think the Penta design had limitations in the tweeter with poor high frequency response but now with the mods I am very happy. One issue remains which was...

  • Beolab Penta MK1 6603- service

    Hello, I recently purchased a pair of Beolab Penta MK1 6603s. One works great, but the amplifier on the second one becomes exceedingly hot when in use. After reading several other posts, the general consensus seems to be that the potentiometer needs to be replaced, along with replacing all of the caps...

  • Beolab Penta MK1 Amp Issues

    Hi all, First time poster here at Beoworld! I came into possession of a pair of Penta MK1's (Australian version, 6605?) around 6 months ago and had them refoamed, but have only recently got stuck into their failing amps. I only tried them briefly to check their state, but intended to use Martin's...

  • Penta 3 starting to crackle and pop

    My 1997 P3's have started to crackle and pop when turned on, sometimes with input and sometimes with no input. Rather alarming as can be loud. Original problem sort of went away after changing to a new cable, but came back after. No amount of cable changes will make the pops go away. Can someone...

  • 2019 State of the Art - Penta MKIII restoration

    Hello, I am about to be given a pair of Penta MkIII, photos show that all the foam is rotted. They haven't been used in years. What is the value in going through a full restoration? Is at absolutely unrealistic, or are there still supplies and materials available such that these can be brought back...
