are those dust covers vented? wouldent that suck dust into the coil? kinda like phase plugs that are mounted to the magnet.


well im thinking of getting a pair of these perhaps in the summer if i can save up some decent cash.

yea they are that. but the power rating is like 25-500w/ch its all room dependent. and if i really need more power i'll just pick up a power amp for a dj setup. more power than needed with those things.

Like most things, they would look boring in black thumb.gif

And pardon me if this will sound incredibly stupid but ... where's the tweeter? tongue.gif

Update on the Turn-table:
Finally figured out my confusion about the missing parts in the Siera 1312 . I mistakenly considered it a rebranded Philips 212 while it's in fact a rebranded 312 . The switches are the 212 - type, hence the confusion.
New switch, fuse, needle, bulbs and DIN to RCA adapter arrived today. Installed everything, lights were extremely dim so picked up some others (6 V 180 mA instead of the 6.3V 300mA). Still waaay to dim mad.gif . And the cue lever just wouldn't stay down when powered on.... lots of troubleshooting later (which led to the discovery that it's actually a 312) I installed the only working original light bulb under the 33 RPM switch and .... it WORKS . Cue lever stays down and at the end of the track it stops spinning and lifts up the lever (like a 312 does, the 212 only stops).
So now I need to find some 6.3 V 44 mA bulbs somewhere (I found some online but going to look around locally because shipping is kind of high for a few bulbs) . Very very weird that they really have to have those exact specs .
Some cleaning tommorrow and when I find the time I might make a new plinth for it. thumb.gif

Tweeter is where the dust cover typically is right in the center of the driver. Apparently KEF feels that placing the tweeter here is better sonically.
