Finally I have finished refurbishing vintage speakers Pioneer HPM700.
New Jentzen caps in crossover with proper banana connectors, supra cable for internal wiring and more sound insulation inside. It is sheep wool and it smells like old wet dog🙂

Now the sound sooo much better! Of course I heavily use wood filler, paint them and get them brand new vinyl.
I’ve done, what I’ve been told be Czech speaker manufacturer and attached them to speaker stands Atacama SL300.
Now I have to fill them with sand and screw speakers to them. And now I don’t really know what to do.
Do you think, that it is better idea to screw them, or use something like blustack or gel pads which stick together and absorbing vibrations in the same time?
Speaker cable is made of Klotz speaker cable 4 mm2, really nice cable. Looks even better than 20 euro/m Furutech 2.5 mm2 cable, but without bullshit.
One side is terminated by copies of WBT banana plugs and the other vintag plugs.

Peace!
