Dynaco A-50 cabinet salvage

Recommended Posts

Hi there

Here is a used pair of Dynaco A-50's I bought from a 2nd hand store for $100.00.

Painted black cabinets with over spray on the back and cloths, Yuch.

Here is a few photos of the in progressive stripping job and the hidden beautiful walnut veneer.

With careful paint stripping and patience you can salvage a very nice quality walnut finish underneath.

I used no sandpaper.

You can see the mounting plate for wall mounting these floor mounted speakers. Huh?

You can also see the standard 8 ohm Seas dome tweeter and the non-standard Seas 16 ohm round frame woofer, not horned.

The switch has the non-standard screwdriver switch, not knobbed.

The velcroed frame with it's minimal wooden frame supports the neutral flecked beige linen grille cloth more than adequately.

Hi Vern.. No photos to be seen...

Sorry for not posting photos.

I took a lot of photos, but at too high a resolution to post here.


Here it is 5 years later and I have still not posted them.

There is photo editing software that I am trying to locate to allow me to post them.

The photos of the work are too nice to not complete this article.

The work that was done can be done to any walnut or other wood veneers.

I may remove a woofer to photograph the inside of the enclosure and crossover network and even take some measurements.

Originally I commented that the rear cabinets corners had the metal brackets for hanging on a wall and this wall not as Dynaco had advertised them, despite their light weight.

Dynaco had several times advertised artists conceptions of their products and then altered the final product appearance, sometimes several times.

Till next time.
