    Stick a wanted post in Private Exhibitions. You never know.

    Alternatively contact the mainlytannoy guy on ebay to see if he has a spare. He does not have one currently listed but perhaps he can sort you out

    Ooh might give mine a rub up (not that I use them). I have 2 sets of covers, 1 original & 1 someone's knocked up out of firewood (they're not that bad - just a black covered one piece cover with stick on later badges instead of the original 3 pieces per speaker).

If you attempt this procedure you should set the switches to these positions before you start and not move them again while the links are in place as although shorted out the switches are still connected and moving them will create a parallel circuit which the crossovers or drivers were not designed for and may cause damage.

    Three links are required per crossover (the ones with the red lines, ignore other grey cables)which relate to the three pairs of coloured dots on the schematic below. I've put a note to say that there's no connection to the track just above the left hand link as it looks very close on the photo.

    P.S. I came up with this myself so do so at your own risk!!



    That top image is wrong, think this is correct. Was unable to edit original post.

    How are the crossovers Edward?

    I'll guess the stereo image is much improved.

    Only managed to plug the crossovers back in late today - but wow!

    All I expected and more.

    Gonna let things settle in for a few days and then come back here with more thoughts and observations. But I'd hazard a guess that the speakers sound even better than when they left Coatbridge back in 1978 - thanks to Paul's expertise and careful calibrating of the crossovers.
