    OK, so I took today off and made some progress on my 1983 Radio Shack Optimus T-110 speaker resto-mod project... I'm installing new woofers, tweeters and crossovers into the walnut veneer cabinets

    I already had repaired the factory 10" passive radiators by replacing the original disintegrated foam surrounds with brand new long lasting butyl rubber surrounds about a week ago

    I enlarged the tweeter cutouts to fit the new MCM 1" soft domes. I also fabricated hardboard mounting adapters for the MCM 8" poly woofers because the original square frame 8" woofer cutouts were slightly too large.

    The old tweeter L-Pads are being bypassed, but still need to be mounted in order to seal the hole in the baffle. I should have these all put together and wired up by tomorrow - looking forward to hearing what they sound like!

    Today was a great day. Only problem is: I don't know where to start!

    Probably Led Zep ;)
