    Default Whats on the inside.


    I was requested to show the interanals of my towers and plan to do that this weekend. I was just wondering if anyone else wanted to show what their speakers look like on the inside.

    I'm going to get the drivers, crossovers and bracing if I can.

    I will see what I can do as well. I love to see under the hood shots of components and speakers.

    Here is the insides of a Yamaha NS-F700 Speaker.

    This is the woofer.



    Crossover



    Internal bracing that runs from the bottom to the top, about dead center. No wonder she weighs 55 lbs.

    What inspired you to pull this thing apart? Is it coming? or going? modifying? or just curiosity?

    I was asked to post pictures so I did. These speakers will be staying with me for a long time and I have no idea how about modifying them. The only thing that I could think of is the crossovers.

    It is nice to know the overall build quality of your speakers. I mean who know's what's on the inside, no bracing, very small gauge wire, tiny magnets, who knows???

    Very true. Your list is typical of "quality" brand name speakers that I have pulled apart. But these look much better on all counts. I also note that someone thought to orient the crossover inductors to minimize field interactions; not a huge big deal, but at least they did it.

    Interesting that they used two different types of damping material; kind of a felt material on the one surface and the fluffy white stuffing everywhere else.

    Happy to know that my speakers are "quality".
