Update 1037A

Update 1037A

Hi,

I own a pair of old 1037A. The problem is that the foam surround of the 12" bass drivers loose their function - they solubilized.
I know that I can get the speaker repaired with new foam surround.
But is it possible to update the speakers to 1037B or 1037C? Do I only need new Bass Drivers with eventually new adjustments or should there be an hardware change in the electronics?
What are the costs?
Thanx a lot
Andreas

Hi Andreas,

Unfortunately it is not possible to update to 1037B or C because it would require a new enclosure, bass driver and amplifier. I recommend that you fix the bass drivers or purchase new 1037C units.

Addendum:

I compared the printed frequency responses from the 1037 models A, B and C out of the operation manuals: They look exactly the same!
The cone from the midrange and the bass drivers look different. How are the identical responses possible?
Thanks a lot

Of course 100% identical responses aren't possible, but it probable that the measurements weren't updated because they would have been so similar.

Both the woofer and midrange are different, but through careful filter design, close to identical frequency responses are in fact possible.
