  1. Hello, I'm trying to determine what veneer banding I need to get to repair a couple of places on the front of my Belles. I thought it was walnut but the reddish tint throws me off. Serial Numbers - 1P610 & 1P611 Any help would be much appreciated.

    I bought a couple damaged. They used glue on the board and it shorts the board out over time. It takes a few hours to clean off but it's worth it. It may damage a resistor, etc. but it's easily replaced. The speaker jacks on back often are broken as well. Still worth the effort to repair it. I only have the C65 preamp. Some day I'd like the C85 pre.

    They sound fantastic. I said I'd never sell them but I can only fit them in my bedroom at my new place.

    Hello everyone, I am considering selling my 1980's Belles in nice condition. There is a couple pieces of veneer pieces missing but if the future buyer is good at veneer, they might prefer doing it them selves?. The fabric in excellent condition and they sound amazing. They have new Type A crossovers and horn to driver gaskets. I'm deciding if I should replaced the veneer or sell as is. What is the average selling price of these speakers? I've seen prices from $2,000 up to $4500 on Ebay? I'm moving to a much smaller place. The placement would be horrible so it doesn't make sense keeping them. I've already sold my LaScalas. I plan on replacing them with some RB-75's or something similar. They are located in Las Vegas, NV.

    Yes, they are fantastic but way overkill for these speakers. http://www.legendaryamps.com/

  8. I'm pretty sure it's still a AA. Sounds great so I'm leaving it alone for now. My next step is checking the woofer and making sure all of the screws are tight. Thanks
  9. My Belles sound amazing. I purchased my Belles from my friend recently. When I brought them home and listened to them I was a little disapointed but not surprised because the had the original AA's. After reading many pages on the forum, I bought new caps, a cool inductor, and new horn seals. I reused my tweeter inductor, autotransformer, and board. I didn't have the money for expensive caps but the Dayton premium 1% caps were recommended from a few people. I removed the steel screw from the tweeter inductor. I removed the tweeter protection. No 2 year olds around. I started to use fasteners to hold the caps but ended up using a little hot glue. I'll come up with a better plan next time. I didn't like having heat on the caps. The horn seals were rock hard. Glad Bob had some new ones. My Belles now sound great. Eventually the tweeter will be on top for time alignment and maybe a larger horn, but for now I'm very pleased. I'm sitting here listening to some old acoustic Pink Floyd and I'm hearing things for the first time. Very cool. I just want to say Thank You to everyone on the forum.
