Nice drivers Zen. It looks like that is a dual chamber like the Dynaco A35. Have you added a 2nd vent? to the top chamber?

Geoff.

Geoff.

I forgot to say that box was originally closed,without any vent or opening;

yes,I added diy variovent (dimensions exactly as in original Dynaudio's),and-yes-to secondary (upper ) chamber

as I wrote before ,series xover is used ; like never before - I can't hear xover point;

in time when in my country was Dynaudio mania (for some circles,at least) I was to young to have not just that,but any sort of money.......so I didn't have opportunity to hear series xovers at the best;
this pair of spks started my later xperiments with that type of xovers and I'll hardly use parallel from now....except for 6db/oct when needed or for PA speakers.......

I have intention to put these drivers in TQWT ,just because I can still hear too much boxiness ,especially in middle part of spectrum.

but-again-these two drivers are so nicely blended .................

Yep, less parts count too. My Peerless I bought in kit form many years ago used them. Still have the coils.

You may find this a useful variation.

I started searching for 'denmark' and 'skan-speak' and 'alnico'.

This is what I found! (this thread)

Turns out I bought a set of perfectly working Dynaco A-50's for $30, at a junk store. The veneer can be rescued, and the grilles are intact. Drivers are perfect. I was the first person to take them apart.

Great design.

Default I just bought the same speakers

Hi Choky !
I just got the same ITT D 235 SD speakers together with B&O Beocenter I've bought. Drivers are in perfect shape they sound really nice. I am musician and I'd say their sound is very natural, nothing's exaggerated.
Cosidering that theese speakers are ~20 years old I'd like to renovate them maybe even use the drivers with new boxes.
Did you change boxes of your ITT's Choky? If so, what did you change to ??
Greetings from Copenhagen !

Greetings from Copenhagen !

for start - change all elko caps in xover to decent film ones , and you'll be surprised with difference ..... more fluid and natural sound .....

I didn't have time to change boxes , but I intend to ....... somewhere - in loudspeaker forum - we agree that only solution gor these spks are really big bass reflex boxes ........ I'll try to find these posts or files in my PC .......... you can try your search capabilities also

and - yes - ya are lucky bstrd !

Thanks for answer ! I think I found the posts you meant.. the oes about aperiodic enclosures ?

Previous owner wanted to throw theese speakers away so I got them for free with my Beocenter. I also wanted to switch imediately to something from B&O until I've put Beethoven string quartets on

Unfortunately I don't know much about speakers in general.. So I've no idea what is xover or film caps Is ther any dictionary for beginner here ?
I didn't manage to take the drivers out of the cover sause beside screws there seems to be a lot of glue..?
I'd really like to renovate theese speakers. I've been fixing some electronics before but just as a hobby (succesfully though)..
Or maybe fixing my ITT's by myself is not a good idea ?
