I have one of these Mini DSP units. I have used it as a basic eq tool for my Kef 104aB speakers, mainly seeing if I can extend the lower bass "Kube style". Of course the 104aB's were never d ...

In about 1980 when I wanted to buy a pair of Kefkit 3's (home build Concertos) the reply from Kef was that the model had been discontinued but that the 104aB kit would deliver "similar performanc ...

That's bad luck blowing a tweeter. it sounds like the fuse was the wrong rating (or bypassed) I assume you have checked it! Even if the unknown replacement for the t27 works well it will be different ...

I have been looking into going active with (possibly) my KEF 104aB's or adding 2 subwoofers to a pair of Wilmslow CS1. I have bought one of these.

Welcome to the world of KEF speakers. As you have discovered the 104aB's are a great value speaker. At present I am running them from a 1980 Yamaha CR620 Tuner/amp. It's not a powerhou ...
