Hello 8)
some news about my DSS940
the woofers are repair with new foams from the website link on previous post.
I've change the relays by new ones.
I've change the botom vinyl on the 2 cabinets (mat black textured close to original color, just little darker) and made some patches on the side with the original botom vinyl.
it's not perfect but they can not be one day on perfect state because the front have deep scratches (probably due to a fall down on concrete floor)
At this time, the result is not so bad and it sound good.
The next job was to repair the front grill because they are completley dead and on one all clips are broken (and I don't know how I can fix that)

Looks nice! :handgestures-thumbup:

Did you check the solder joints of the in/output, the 230V connectors and the voltage regulators on the board? Usually they are broken.

For repairing the front units, you might use these.

The 680 Ohm resistor works fine although nowadays I replace the 1k resistor (3334) with a 1k69/0,6W to get the same effect.

Thank you movieman ;)

of course, I've made a lot a solder joints on the board, just one broken on the 230v connector on the first DSS, but some dry soldering or suspicious so I've made a good preventive soldering everywhere I've see suspect solder :geek:
For the resistor i've ever this 680 Ohm because on my DSS 930 I've ever buy this one for the new relays and I've no 1k69 on my stock :D

Thank you for the link to repair the clips, have you ever done the job before with this parts?

No I did not but they should work fine. Maybe you have to do some modifications... If the rubber inserts are still intact then you only have to use the nipples. Be aware that the screwholes of the speakers must be airtight!

Conrad has different items, these might also do the trick...

I would cut off the backpart of the nipples and then glue them onto the speakers' metal fronts...
