Looks like a great project.

Risking being rude: What did you pay for the 107s and what is your budget for the refurb?

I had a pair of 104/2s once - they were gorgeous. They were 15-20 years old yet all the drivers were in excellent condition. I suppose this depends on use, and local humidities etc?

I was going to upgrade the tweeters, replace the internal wiring and renew some of the caps. The XOs were very difficult to remove, and I was very novice at the time, so I decided to leave them alone, and DIY from scratch. This is probably what got me started DIYing.

I would happily buy another pair of 104/2s one day, so I am sure that your 107s will sound great.

Have you checked out hifiloudspeakers.info ?

It is a largely dedicated Vintage KEF site.

Hi, i paid 400 but the guy gave me 150 back. So before the refurbishment they stand me at 250 plus deisel to fetch them (40/50) When everything is finished they will probably stand me at more like 800.
Most importantly though, i'm enjoying myself and hopefully the end product will be more than worth it.

Just been to that forum. Looks perfect for me but the registration process is a pain. I have got to wait for an email containing a ref number but the only email i keep getting is an auto reply saying that the administrator is too busy at the mo.
Will keep trying as it does look v.good so thanks for that.

Quite right - though it is dangerously addictive, especially once you have built up the confidence to do some of the work yourself.

Please keep us up to date with your progress.

Good luck

Kef 107 foam surround kit, go to this web site and enter Kef 107 in there search box this is the proper kit for all four woofers and at $80.00 US is about half the price of the only other supplier I could find and are high quality surrounds.

Hope this helps
Johnny.

Default And the results were?

Well folks, its been a bit over four years, and there was never any followup on this.
How did this project turn out? Did it get finished?

I have a beautiful pair of 107's, but time kills all speaker foam at some point. I'm at that point now.

Anyone else here who's done a refurb soup to nuts?
