I've got a Yamaha DSP-1000 suround sound amp which is about 10 years old and is diplaying all the problem signs those amps have become notorious for, crackling through the speakers, volume control problems, etc.

My main speakers are a set of KEF Concerto's I built from a kit back in 1974. They're still good, but they're sounding a little tired.

My main plan was to build a pair of Ariel speakers, a Subwoofer like the one you're buiding, and upgrade to a new Dolby 5.1/DTS amplifier. Unfortunately, everything's on hold at the moment.
 
Hello GlennME,

Old Yamaha soldering can get lousy in my experience.
Blanket resolder of power supply, regulator and output stages, plus contact spray on all switches and pots, should provide a relatively easy and economical and permanent fix - Strong wife acceptance factor !
I have found Multicore Savbit solder, and Cramolin Contaclean to be good.

Replace caps with polypropylene, and wire with 10 pair telephone cable will give these a birthday.
I have a pair of Concertos and transmission lines in parallel - this combination kicks *** quite nicely and you are unlikely to get the sexy female vocals that these give economically, otherwise.
Also strong wife acceptance factor !

Wes components have DT-500 dome tweeter - Korean made $15.00 but they are pretty good, - one way to add a bit of shine to KEF tameish top end.

Hope this can help,
Regards, Eric
