Known problems

  • The beads of the bass-midrange drivers discolor unattractively over time. According to Mr. Küper, former employee of the company GIA, this can be repaired by rubbing with acetone. The bead becomes flexible again. Works perfectly. Only wipe in one direction, not back and forth. If possible in one go once over the entire bead, again if needed. And make it as neat as possible. The result can be heard and seen!
