  1. It looks like it's a Philco driver. There is also a (illegible) stamp on the bottom, as well as a hand scratched number. The same number is on both cabinets. My inclination was that this was someone's personal info (e.g. social security, driver license etc as many did back in the day, but the numbers do seem to be matching any common usage. Also, on one cab, the numbers are under the bracket. that leads me to believe they were written before the bracket was installed.
  2. nevermind on the 16ohm - I see the second one now! Glasses. Damn getting too old....
  3. Ah the 12uf now makes sense! Is it possible to work on the board with disconnecting all wires? Also, I see you have some brown tape on some - what is that? and some white stuff on the board underneath. Some sort of glue? recommendations for a cheap solution on that? lastly you show 4 16 ohms on your list but I only see 1 (per cab) on the schematic on mine. Is this again the different board revision?
  4. Looking at your list, you have more caps then are in my model 5? I don't have any 12ufs in mine, nor two 15uf's (just one plus another if I want to make the 25uf which you pointed out). Am I missing something? In the noise, cost-wise, but I don't see them.Maybe your is a differebt rev of Model 5. My board doesn't look like yours. Mine is a PCB type board.
  5. Thanks for the masisound point and tips! I'm going to check that site out tomorrow. I think the only challenge left (other than the ordering waiting and working on it) is figuring out which side of the dual lead was the 3 and which was the 4 but it sounds like there is some info on that after I browse for it. Thanks!

  7. Pick a pair of model 5's up and want to do a basic (inexpensive) recap on them. I will probably just look on ebay or parts express as my part source. Question, the existing caps look polarized? Am i reading those incorrectly? Parts expess sells non polarized so I didn't want to get the wrong thing. Also think that 3uf may not be too common - should I be using 3.3 or 2.7 in place? Given a 10% tolerance it may not make a difference but looking for opinions. Sanity check, I need a 25, 15 three 4's and a 3, correct? Times two of course. Any other tips appreciated. One of the caps was dual 3uf/4uf but i'm not sure which lead was which (they both measure way out of spec now so I can't tell from the reading) Thanks for any help/advice.
  8. Picked these up an an auction. Definitely look sixties or early seventies. No marking of any kind on them. They are identical on all 4 sides. Speaker wire is attached through a hole in the bottom. RCA plugs on the ends. About 16" tall, 8" wide and deep. Anyone?
