I have a Tivoli Model 2 attached to my PC as the speakers for it (retired from another use), and a model 1 radio in my office. They are OK, but the receptor radio on my nightstand is really much better to my ears, I'm in agreement with audiosteve.

I've got a bunch of pictures of the guts of my model 1. And I can take acoustic measurements of my model 2 if I am talked into it. I'll upload the pics of the model 1 shortly

Here's a couple pics I took of the Tivoli radio a few years ago. I should have taken more pics of the driver itself.

I'll try to find the pics of my Model One and post them. The port on mine is mounted on the bottom of the wood enclosure and mine doesn't have the bucking magnet on the driver.

When listening from a distance and at higher level, these problems were not obvious (in fact boomy bass is an attribute that “sells” on this size of radios)
I opened it up, treated the cone with a dilluted plasticizer (two coatings), filled the internal volume of the box (not around the x-former) with fiberglass and stuffed the bass reflex tube with dacron.
Now, mids are much cleaner and bass not boomy but pronounced and tight.
Removing the protective screen from the front side of the speaker is another step forward.

Good advices, thank you therefore.

Who can post detailled schematic diagrams of the various versions? I need it for service and for checking various enhancements.
And who knows the manufacturer brand from China ?

The speaker was made by Foster aka Fostex. Have no idea who manufactured the radio for Tivoli.

I'm fairly certain the Philips IC you mentioned is the same used in my Tivoli. You can expand the picture in post 14 and almost read the markings on it.
