Phoenix HiFi

Phoenix Hi Fi: Construction, equipment renewal, experimentation, measurements and LISTENING!

Completely refinished, including a rebuilt base. All crossover caps were replaced with modern film caps with the tweeter fed with a Jupiter Beeswax film cap.  My son in law loves them, "they rock"   Kids today.  When I was a kid back in the 60s we never rocked.

Dual 12" woofers in a sealed enclosure.  Cabinets were in pretty good shape, but I replaced  crossover capacitors with film types, and replaced the non functional fabric dome tweeters with Beston planar tweeters, though pictured here is the original fabric dome.

Restoring Vintage Audio Equipment

Heathkit W3AM Hot Rod

Completely rebuilt.  All caps, some transistors and a few resistors were replaced.  I modified the unti to add a balanced output.  This unit is currently in my main system.

Even the screws were replaced on these units!  All new resistors, new PIO coupling caps, film and foil input cap, all new power supply caps, even new paint on the chassis and transformers.  These babies now have a wonderful home in Colorado!
