  • Accurian Speaker Mod

    I remember back in the day someone rebuilt the accurian powered speaker. I can't seem to find it in my searches. I have a pair of the speakeres, and two of the amps that I plan to make two pair of powered computer speakers with.

    Anyone remember this mod?

      I never set up a page for the modded Accurian speakers because there wasn't enough interest. But there was a lot of info posted in this forum--just search for accurian and my user name.

      One of the first posts, showing the amp mod: http://techtalk.parts-express.com/sh...light=accurian

      I ended up with 3 of these powered speakers: one with the original drivers, and two with better drivers. The drivers used in the modded speakers are described in this post: http://techtalk.parts-express.com/sh...an#post1479523. Both of these modded speakers turned out well--just took a bit more woodworking than I has hoping for to get the drivers to fit.

      There are a lot of sites that show the mod for the amp. It's pretty simple, with no soldering involved.

        Re: Accurian Speaker Mod

        Thanks Neil. That was the thread I was looking for, I thought it was on audio karma or diyaudio. Not much more information there than I already had. I am going to model the Peerless 831882 and the ND28F-6, which is a drop in replacement. I need to check the enclosure size and see how things look.

        I took the passive speaker apart, and also removed the amp module and ws surprised to not see a transformer. I later discovered it off the board and in the enclosure with the drivers. I got two of the amps for $14.95 each, and he threw in the powered speakers for $10/pr.

        For practice, I plan on veneering these with some rosewood I bought. I'll post progress if I make any.

        Thanks again.
