  1. Thanks a lot Deano. I'll check it out
  2. I don't think it's dead tweeter because it still sounds fine, just not as good as speaker B. Yeah could be the wiring. I'll look into that. Thanks
  3. I have 2 of the same speakers (Kef model 100) but they sound so different. I'll call them speaker A and speaker B. Speaker A sounds bass heavy and highs sound dull. Speaker B sounds neutral with crisp highs. I took them apart and see there are some differences, for example: 1) Different stickers used on the driver; 2) Speaker A is spray painted black underneath the front panel, while speaker B is not; 3) Speaker A's red electrical wire (connected from the circuit board to the tweeter) is blank, while Speaker B's red wire reads 22awg 105c 600v. All of this leads me to believe they were made in different factories. And I think they sound different because the electrical wires used on speaker A are somewhat different to speaker B. Or could it be that these speakers have had different lives? I bought them both second hand. Any thoughts? ~Sam.
  4. Hey all! Looking for this amp in second hand condition. Preferably in silver with a warranty. If anyone knows someone who's selling, please let me know. I'm located in Melbourne. Thanks, Sam.
  5. Thanks for your advice Sounds complicated Yep, I'd better bring it to a professional
  6. Hi all, I have an old Yamaha subwoofer model YST-SW300 I want to repair. Recently it stopped working. It powers on but no sound comes out. I measured the ohms on the driver with a multimeter and it gets 6 ohms, which is right. So I think I can rule out the driver. Could it be a blown fuse or capacitor? Does anyone have experience repairing subwoofers and can provide advice on what the issue might be? I would prefer to try and get this old thing going again rather than buy a new sub. Especially if it's an easy fix such as a blown fuse/capacitor I can buy from JayCar for next to nothing then solder it on. I know it's a long shot, but I think it's worth a try. I attached some photos of the motherboard etc if anyone is interested in helping me out. Thank you. Kind regards, Sam.
  7. Thank you both for your warm welcome and advice. I'll stretch my budget and keep an eye on the classifieds for an amp that can drive these babies
  8. Hi everyone, I'm new here - Sam from Brighton Victoria. I'm after stereo amplifier recommendations to drive my Revel Performa F30s. Currently they are part of a 5.1 set up with an AV receiver (Yamaha rx-v2095). I've read online these speakers require a LOT of power to perform at their best, and I'm keen to hear them sing. As for budget, I'm looking to spend up to $2000 for a used amplifier. I welcome and appreciate any advice and/or recommendations. Thanks in advance. Sam.
