Restored Calipers

Postby BobM on Fri Apr 15, 2011 10:18 am

I recently picked up a beat up pair of Calipers and restored them DIY. Patched and repainted the cabinets, new caps and coils and resistors, new gasket foam, etc. They are not perfect but they are far better than when I received them and they sound great.

There is a slight buzz at 30Hz when the ribbon flaps against the magnets, but that's only there on bass torture tracks (and how often do those get played anyway). I am really enjoying these through my McCormack DNA 500 amp.

I do notice many systems posted here seem to have their Apogees up on a box of sorts. Why - how does that change the sound?
