Great work! And I guess you sprayed over the logo on the woofers? Looks a lot shinier now.

No, I bought some 4" aluminum dust caps. I was gunna polish them to look like chrome but they are too thin.

At first I was thinking of getting rid of it in a couple months. But the more I sit and listen to it I think it will stay in my collection for a little while longerAttached File  2235DF00-06EE-4751-BF2D-2EB16A4AD563.jpg   88.32K   2 downloads

I think he meant to say North Korea built it FOR East Germany, not sure how that's known. The emblem is for Studio Technik, they also made the Club 5006.

North Koreans get their radio over a wired system you can't turn off, but if you own a radio I think it must be purchased by the state, who makes them tunable to only approved stations. Normal radios do exist but they're very illegal and hidden away and listened to in secret.

Had to upgrade the terminator with 18 volt lithium ion batteries, that make one hell of a difference because this motherfuker thumps!.
