Duckhaven Posted January 16, 2017 Report Share Posted January 16, 2017 I have installed the new capacitors and as soon as I get my shipment of sealant from Vintage AR I plan to put my Model Five's back together. I have two questions and I tried to find some help on the forum, but no luck. So, first, on the terminal plate. I've seen photos online where the plate appears to have been stuck very securely to the cabinet, so much so that the particleboard crumbled and some of it stayed on the plate. In my case, the plate sort of popped loose and came away neatly. It looks like it had been glued in some manner. Here's is my first question, when I put it back together, should I use some glue? I would like to be able to take it apart again, but I am worried it might buzz if I don't secure it in some manner. What's the prevailing thought? My second question pertains to gaskets on the midrange and tweeter. If I did not loosen the screws and remove the speaker am I OK? ... Or, should I take them apart and improve upon a dusty old 1967 gasket? The tweeter looks like what I have on my Model 17's - a foam ring. The mid-range seems to have it's gasket made by the dense fiber packing that is stuffed in the mid-range enclosure (I had to pop one up and take a look). Thanks in advance!
