    ADS L730 Mods

    Saw this topic and wanted to ask a question. I have a pair of ADS L730s and have always been curious if the mid-range driver from the ADS L810 would be compatible with the L730s. It looks as though the face plate would fit right into the opening of the L730s, the only difference being that the L810 has the larger dome midrange. I think the L880 also has the same midrange driver as the L810. Essentially if the L810 midrange is compatible with the L730, it would be kind of like turning my L730s into L880s.
  2. Yes Ohm does call their drivers a high tweeter and a low tweeter. So perhaps you are right and that mid that is in his C2s does the equal job of the original Ohm low tweeter. I'd like to see what Ohm's low tweeter looks like without the protective grill. I have a blown one here that came out of my C2, maybe I could pry the grill off it and take a look.
  3. This is bizarre. My friend has a pair of Ohm C2s that he bought back in college. I believe he graduated in 1981, a couple of years after I did. One of the mid-ranges on his C2s went bad. He brought to someplace in Providence, RI to have it replaced. Well we just pulled out his C2s about a month ago and the mid-range that was put in was not an original Ohm mid, but it looks EXACTLY like that phenolic tweeter. I did some research on this thing online and a place called Simply Speakers still carries these for about 25.00. But what the hell is it doing in my buddy's Ohm C2 as a replacement mid ??? Is it possible that some clown just popped it in there because it fit ? I'm scratching my head on this one. By the way, this replacement for the original mid took place in the early 80s, so the place that put the new "mid" in is long gone. Just recently I bought a pair of pristine Ohm C2s for 300.00. They already had the upgraded poly woofers so I ordered the upgraded mids and tweeters from the Ohm website. Yes they are still in business and still in Brooklyn, NY. And the President, John Strohbeen, even answers the phone when you call. I since have found a pair of new, open box original C2 tweeters from a former Ohm parts rep up in Canada. Never been used. I like the looks of the original tweeters better so those will be going in. As for that mid-range replacement on my friend's C2s that seems to be that phenolic tweeter thing.....I'm giving him one of my original C2 mid-ranges to replace that bastardized mid. We will be putting that in tomorrow night. I just joined this site, although I have read a lot of threads here. And stumbling on this thread inspired me to tell this most recent speaker story....
  4. Working on a pair of L810s, one speaker needs all the drivers replaced. Found all the replacement drivers from Ebay. The woofers came out easily. But I have no idea how to get the mid-range driver out of the cabinet. There are 4 screws around the perimeter of the faceplate and 4 screws right around the dome. It seems those 4 inner screws around the dome are the screws that hold the magnet in place. So I would think removing the 4 screws around the perimeter would allow for the faceplate to come off with the dome and magnet intact. But the faceplate does not want to budge. I don't want to force it because I don't want to chip the baffle. Obviously since the driver is shot if that were to get damaged no big deal. Can someone tell me if there is some trick to getting the mid out of the cabinet ? I haven't even tried taking out the tweeter yet. Is the faceplate also glued on as well as screwed on ? I'm at a loss. Thanks for any help you can give me.
