Purchased a pair of KEF 105's series 1 about 3 months ago and I have to say I'm amazed at how fantastic they are! They were fairly cheap here in the U.K (250) and although not in the best condition all the drivers etc. are perfect and sound wonderful. The next step is upgrading the cross overs/internal wiring and bypassing the daft fuse system on the back of them. Does anyopne know how I would go about this??? To say I wasn't handy with a soldering iron would be an understatement mind...any ideas where or who I would approach about this? If anyone does find any of these monsters I can't praise them enough. I run a recording studio and been a session musician (saxophone) for 12 years and I sound more like me on them than pretty much anything else, including big studio monitors costing tens of thousands of pounds..

Thanks!

I recently picked up a pair of KEF 105 the original ones with matching serial numbers. Can anyone tell me more about them. do I need to rewire and how do I do so. I have the fuses in the back also are they still available. Also what older Amp/ Reciever and preamp would you reccomend. Thanks
