  • Re: BeoVox 2600 Refurbishment

    Here is the old board in the middle of deconstruction. I progressively assembled and disassembled both the old and new components in order to stay on track. And here is the new system being assembled on the other corner of the speaker. Here you can see the awkward size of the resistor is causing another set of issues, this time with the legs and the solder joint.

    [quote user="sonavor"] For someone so young you have a great collection of vinyl records (from rock's good years). On this crossover recap - are you going to do just one speaker first and compare the sound to the other speaker? If you do set your music source to mono and see if you can hear a difference. I tried that on my Beovox S55's but I replaced the electrolytics with new electrolytics and couldn't really tell a difference. I thought I did at first but as I listened to

    [quote user="Søren Mexico"] Show your tools Evan, there are folks out there that never done this, and want to learn, besides this is the first bench thread for a long time, we are all watching [/quote] Yes, of course, how could I forget the tools!! Ahem, here they are... All that is needed are standard household hand tools such as screw drivers, pliers, a soldering iron and fresh solder wire. If you want to get fancy and create a photo thread like this, you will of course need a

    A word of warning about the fasteners, they are aluminum. As a consequence, they are very soft and will be easy to damage, so be gentle removing and replacing these. EDIT: Aluminum? I must have been properly tired or something to miss the giant spot of RUST! Aluminum - yeah right.

    First off is the easy part, removing the frets. I have to say, these are the easiest B&O frets to remove!! Easy enough to remove with one hand! They are attached with some super strength hook and loop and will require some strength. Don't be afraid to apply your strength, the fret is mostly made up of metal and will take the abuse.

    To start off this project right, I have sourced ALL of the necessary parts before the project. Here is the equipment. For those of you that have a pair of 2600s and want to refresh the crossover, you will need 25uF and 8uF capacitors as well as a 2.2ohm resistor. I have sourced the following: (2) 25uF 400VDC +/-5% Solen Cap (2) 8.2uF 250V ERSE Pulse X Cap (8.0 not available) (2) 2R2 10W Lynk Resistor I ordered the above (as well as many others..) from Meniscus Audio. I have to give them honorable

  • BeoVox 2600 Refurbishment

    Hello BeoWorld, A while ago I sourced a pair of BV2600's as an added speaker alternative to my vintage BeoSystem. This particular model of speaker does not seem to be very popular in the Beo-World and after a quick and informal survey of you, the members, you indicated that I should indeed publish a refurb thread on the 2600. With some spare time this evening I am going to kick off such a project starting with the crossover. I am going to try and post this as I progress tonight to keep you lot

  • Re: BC 9500 RL60.2 BEOVOX PENTAS setup

    Hi Pete, Your decision to use an external amplifier is an excellent one. On your din plug, solder pin 3 for the left channel audio, pin 5 for the right and pin 2 for the ground. If you want to get fancy and trigger your new amp to turn on via dc trigger, use pin 4 for a dc constant. This circuit should be grounded to the same signal chassis as mentioned above. Good luck!!
