Quality woofers and tweeters
« on: December 03, 2008, 11:29:43 AM »
I am new to the forum and forgive me if this question has been asked many times. Where can I source good quality speakers to replace my old B&O woofers and tweeters.
I have bought new 10"  "Infinity 250W kevlar" speakers, but they are too powerfull and the sound is dissapointing, as my NAD T751 only puts out 60W per channel. Having paid R250 per speaker, I doubt that the quality is good.  The original B&O Beofox 5700 speakers have huge magnets but were only 100W(60W RMS) If I'm correct. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I used Infitities before and they're actually very good for the money.

B&O used seas drivers at a stage, (Audiosa being the agents). You have to fit something that suits the box and x-over and the tweeter needs to match as well. That is imo the main reason why the Ifnfinity speakers doesn't work for you.

Firstly, tell us about your B&O speakers. What is wrong with them? Do you still have the original drivers? What model are the speakers?

Hi Shonver, The models are B&O Beovox 5700 22.5cm 4 ohms with 100 watts music handling power and 60 watts DIN Power Handling Capacity, whatever this means. There is also a 6cm dome and a tweeter, but no further details known. Crossover frequency 600 - 6000 Hz.
