Hi everyone here Smile

my name is Sascha, 45 years old. Im living in Hamburg / Germany.

I bought my first Kef Speakers in the early 1980ies - some DIY Concertos with DN 12, T27, B110 and B139. Later I upgraded them to DIY Cantatas with DN 19/20, T52, B110 and B139.

I liked them really but I bought some years later my first B&W Matrix 3, then Matrix 802 S2 and Matrix 802 S3 I still have in my living room.

Two years ago I remembered my old "love" Kef an I bought some white Coda from 1972 for my kitchen which sound great with an Onkyo receiver from the early 1990ies.

Yes... again I had the great sound quality of voices and guitars. The B110 ist still one of the best, I think.

Some weeks ago I found 3 Kef Ref. 101 for a very good price at German eBay. I couldn'tt resist and I had to buy them Wink.

I will use them for my computer as Left Center Right speaker. With an good amplifier, perhaps Camtech... we will see, what christmas brings...

And I'm busy again with Kef speakers...


Now I would like to replace the caps and to shorten the protection circuit.

But... please dont laught....

I cantt dismount the crossovers.

I loose the screw in the middle of the crossover.
It seems they are glued to the bottom of the cabinet.

Im afraid to break the circuit board.

I would be very grateful for any idea to get them out, without damaging them.

Best regards,

Sascha

Theyre held in place with four 30mm*5mm pieces of rather ferocious double sided tape from 3M, so a sharp blade is required Smile .

Don't cut yourself Crying or Very sad .
