Hello everyone,

 

Today I decided to open up the Grado and mod it, but they look seriously messed up now, but the sound is to my taste xD Here's my question, anyone here can help make wood cups for my SR60i? If so, please PM me. No rush, will probably order it by March or something

 

Thanks

Bullson

Nice. Thanks for posting such a good picture. I searched the thread about the tape mode and didn't find any pics that were that well taken. I will go try it out now.

Enjoy!

Seeking advice in recabling SR125 with no soldering experience ...

 

3.5mm stereo plug ... That shouldn't be too difficult ...

What cable would I need (4 26AWG conductors cable?  Mogami 2893?) ...

Heat Shrinks ... What sizes and lengths for Y split and braided wire cover ... How about laces' size in covering heat shrinks and cable ...

At this point, just have a soldering iron and sponge ... Planning on getting all supplies tomorrow ...

 

Anything I should be aware when soldering ...

 

Greatly appreciated for any advice / suggestion ...

I myself use a Weller W60P3 soldering iron, which I find to have decent enough heat control for most soldering jobs.

 

Be sure the iron is nice and hot, with a tinned tip. Don't leave the iron on the wire pads of the driver for to long or you risk disconnecting the driver coil wires from the pad. In which case the driver is unusable. I pull lightly on the wire while I apply the iron so that when the solder around the wire melts, the wire comes free and the iron tip is immediately removed from the joint to avoid disconnecting the coil wire(s). If the iron tip has to remain on the pad for a long time to get the solder to melt, I would recommend a hotter iron. You don't want to melt all the solder on the pad evenly, just where it joins the wire. This will eliminate the chance of driver destruction.
