Traynor Traynor YGM-4
« on: August 23, 2015, 03:28:41 AM »
I have a 1972 Traynor Studiomate that has four 8" speakers in it. I am thinking of removing the speakers and replacing them with a new baffle and a 12" speaker. The speaker tap for the amplifier is 8 OHM and the speaker I would like to use is 16 OHM, would this be okay?

  Yes, it will be fine.  The amp will put out a little less power into the 16 ohm load, but probably not very noticeable.

I have an old 1973 Celestion that seems to work fine that would be a good candidate.What would be the best way to make sure the cone and spider along with the rest of the mechanism are clean before I install the speaker? I'm thinking compressed air unless someone has a better idea that they would like to share.

Use a DMM set at low ohms and if it reads around 6~8 Ohms then plug it in and listen.
If it works, leave it alone,,,,dust adds mojo. 8)

Sideways blowing with compressed air plus maybe helping with an very soft artist's brush is fine.
Just don't blow string perpendicular because you may push the dustcap down.
Whatever dust is left after that is firm and should not be a problem.
