Technics SB-G750
« on: September 25, 2016, 04:17:45 PM »
Hi all. Received a pair of Technics SB-G750 as a gift. Pretty sure they are from the 80's. The sound really good.

Been trying to find online resources on them. Cant really find anything.

Has anyone had a pair? Opinions?

Questions,

1. It looks like someone spilled coffee or something on one of the woofer cones. Any advise on the best way to clean it?
2. One of the mids dust caps have been pushed in. What is the best way to pull it out. Seems to be metal and I'm wondering if using pres stick will do the trick.
3. The subwoofer has a weird plastic dust cap. Is it just for show or does it serve some purpose (other than a normal dustcap)?

Thanks guys. When I first saw them I was a bit sceptical but to be honest I think they are amazing. Who is the wizard?

IIRC, purely for show. :cool: ;D

Opnions?

I remember lusting after these in the 80s. Nothing specific to do with their sound, more because of the BIG woofers and the 'Super Bass' (always been a bass-freak, still am). I am glad they sound good. Maybe Steerpike can tell you more. :)

When they were given to me I was like... What the hell are these. Laughed cause they had tone LEDs that light up... Was laughing until I heard them. Loving them...

Just hooked these up to the Sansui Au-999 and they sound very very good

I recall the 'flavour' - if not the exact model - from around 1982/1983.
I doubt they will take 330W RMS, but nobody in their right mind could tolerate that sort of sound level in a home.

I have read of people using leather dye to "fix" stained woofer cones, but then you do have to change the whole thing to a darker colour.

The dust cap is unlikely to ever look good again, but you could cut it out and replace it with a generic black fabric one. It might by aluminised mylar, in which case it will pop out if you pull on it - prestick maybe, or suck it with a soft rubber hose (vacuum cleaner too violent and unpredictable).
Contact lens dealers sell a thing that looks like a tiny rubber toilet plunger (to hold a contact lens), which might be useful.

Thanks Steerpike.

Rather not going to tamper with the cones. Never take the covers and the coffee stain gives them uniqueness
