Likewise, I've owned a pair of the chrome beauties for 15 years, and nothing I've heard under $45,000 comes close to the total satisfaction they always give - year in and year out. And their look - to die for!

Hi all.
If you are having problems with the Xover units then perhaps i am responsible.?
About 90% of all Xover units where assembled by my company in London.
The main problems where the fixings of the Pots , the Fuse holder and the Speaker terminals, this was resolved after the first 50 or so units by adding more serated washers to grip the wooden panel.
The other problem was the Pots , they where scratchy from new, resolved by cleaning the contact area on the pots and giving a very light spray of contact lube that contained a small ammount of light oil.
Making Modifications of the speakers:
Do NOT remove the fuse/ holder assembly.
It serves to protect the speakers from overload.( And what will you do with the hole thats left.? )
Any alterations such as removing the Chrome end caps WILL effect the sound quality, as well as the resale value.

Ted

Default Yet another re-build

Hi,

Just got my 401s out of storage after a very long time.

I was so disappointed with the sound - my memories of the way they used to sound had me expecting some delightful listening.

Have spent the last week or so researching, reading and so on.

I've decided on a complete refurbishment.

I'll re foam the bass and mids - hopefully the tweeters are still OK, but won't know for sure until I open them up. I also want to re-build the crossovers as many others have.

Whilst I am handy at the DIY and pretty good on cars I've never tackled anything like this before.

I would appreciate any guidance anyone has - particularly if anyone has a shopping list of the bits needed to re-build the crossovers.

Wilmslow Audio - which has been linked to in many many Gale 401 posts no longer seem to be stocking parts - so again any help with where I can source all the bits would be really great.

Here's hoping I can re live the incredible performance of these speakers as I remember them.

Thanks in advance for your help
