Welcome to the forum...

As to the Dynaaudios, if they are not already set up for bi-wiring/passive bi-amping, then you would need to map out the crossover as a start.

Smile Thanks Dave

Ciao Dave,
thanks a lot for your kind answer and for such a nice Forum.

The Dyna have only a pair of post and an OCOS cable input.

That's why I'm just looking on the web to get Dyna xover schemas, but it doesn't seem an easy task...

When possibile I'd like to know before opening them :-)

Ciao,

Stefano

When i get a new set of speakers, opening them up to see what is inside is one of the 1st things i do :^) -- electronics too.

Hi Dave,
"roger", as soon as I open 'em I'll share with you all

Meanwhile, this weekend I'll try to close, drive and "tune" my first shiva based diy sealed sub unit (about 90 lt.), powered with a HK870 and "corrected" by a Behringer DSP.

Ciao,

Stefano

Smile SUB is fine

Hi all,
the SUB is sounding preety cool, powered up by a HK/870 and eq'd by a Behringer DSP.

I'm quite happy

Now, next steps will be to build the second one, and to open the Dynaudios to check the quality of components.

Do you think that a cap replacement (pgrade) would be worth the effort??

Ciao,

Stefano

Caps can influence the sound in a possitive way. But changing the coils with lower resistance coils can change the cross-over frequency.

Default Caps replacement

Hi Taco,
thanks a lot for your feedback.

Ok, I would begin with a simple quality upgrade. Do you know which brand of caps Dynaudio use (if common)?

Stefano
