B&W DM4

I'm assuming these are about the smallest of these made?

I did some digging on them and found hardly anything.

Now for the bonehead question of the day, how do these wire up?

    Screws holding in the drivers were not tight...

    To keep with the tradition of being a bonehead when it comes audio stuff.

    Does anybody know what the grey plugs in pics 1 & 2 are for?

    Finally got a manual, gray plugs still no clue.

    Sound is very nice, put them on some stands at 28.5", tried different receivers, finally settled on an old SA200 at a whopping 25wpc and I'm quite impressed at these old puppies.

    Threw in an old powered polk sub to the setup and I, including the wife was impressed.

    Pushed it to 3.5 on the volume, it sounded very, very warm, the highs were not harsh, not fatiguing nor was the bass "what I call, kind of muddy".

    Best 25 wpc fun I've had in a time... B)

    I will give you 4 dollars for them as they stand, without knowing a THING about what those plugs are for :wink:

    Mystery solved.

    Ken from Bowers & Wilkins stated "the gray plug in the picture is actually a Din speaker connector, which is an alternate method of wiring the speakers-not commonly used these days"

    Mr. Hardy was spot on, once again!!

    Didn't B&O use a funky din on their speakers?
