Sony SS-M3 Bookshelf Beauties!!

Took on a project for a friend of mine and now have them completed. I got these on not good condition, pretty scratched up and chips on the corners galore! Should have taken pics but got busy and did not.

Anyway this is the completed project. These sound absolutely incredible as well! I have to talk him out of these...I smell smoke...oh no... is there a fire nearby these!! HA

Enjoy the pis of a very fine speaker brought back to life!

I have heard these speakers and they are indeed impressive, I would love to get hold of the SS-M7's.

This is my first experience with them- I am quite impressed! Appear to have Peerless drivers in them and very nice networks!

Looks very nice. How difficult was it getting the woofer out without "buggering" up the cabinet. I recently purchased a pair of the SS-M7 speakers and am curious to open the speakers up and look inside. Did you pull drivers first - or did you open back of speaker first and enable yourself to push the drivers out from behind?

the drivers fell out into my hands! The tweeters we dome dented pretty good as well but managed to pop them back into place with several vacuum sessions.....
