JKent Posted June 29, 2012 Report Share Posted June 29, 2012 Another successful thrift store run. I had previously found the Ohm Ls described in this thread: http://www.classicsp...?showtopic=4631 This time they're Ohm Model Es for $6.The veneer was intact but extremely dry and faded. A treatment with Restor-a-Finish Dark Walnut will be followed by several applications of Watco Danish Oil.The woofers were a nice surprise: No foam surrounds. They have inverted roll cloth surrounds, like early KLH (although nowhere near as beefy as the KLH--these are pretty lightweight.The speakers work but no critical listening yet. The stuffing is a single thin sheet of something like carpet padding (!). The Ohm L was similar but they were ported.Crossover has a few resistors that will stay and a single 4.7uF cap which will be replaced with nice ones from ApexJr that happened to be in the parts box ($1 each). One grille had some white latex paint smeared on it. Got most off with Goof Off but then noticed the frame was broken. Glued and clamped it without removing the stretchy grille cloth. We'll see how that works out.....Kent Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
