Hi, I am a newbie here. Just bought a pair of KEF 105's for $400 and am driving them with a Sansui AU-717. I didn't get the original owners manual and wanted to know if anyone has one. Also no wheels, which would be better, wheels or spikes?

Don't know how to attach a file to post, but if you email me I'll send what I have. Or, perhaps there's another here who'll share an easier way?

here is the series 2 installation manual, very similar manual to series 1, the major text difference is the fuses were replaced with SSTOP electronic protection.

I would put something in between the floor and the enclosures to raise the 105.2. I damaged my enclosures (no wheels) when water was spilled on the floor and crept into the 105. The enclosure sucks water big time !!!

Yes soggy chipboard isn't much fun Sad .

Get some (external PVA - it's waterproof!) glue into the soggy joints a.s.a.p.

I had some Ref 105-2s that had a paddle in the River Severn, dried out and were o.k. for about eighteen months before the panels fell apart.

It took weeks with large panel clamps to get them back together Rolling Eyes .

Hi Audiolabtower, are you still able to provide this pdf? Just in a process of fully restoring the 105.1

Thanks
Mark
