saba: W II (W2, WII); Freiburg Tube layout
John Drewitz

Greetings from Minnetonka, Minnesota USA.  I would appreciate a tube layout for this model.  My radio found me with no back panel and I would like to confirm that I have the tubes properly placed.


Thank you!

Michael Watterson

I don't have a tube layout. But I was working on a set where I didn't even know what tubes there should be!

Consult the schematic. I haven't so I may make a mistake:

EF80 EC92 ECH81  These 3 are  for VHF and AM Mixer/Osc. The EC92 is the only 7 pin. The ECH81 will be beside the AM tuning vanes.

EF41 This is likely IF amp so between the pair of IFT cans.

EM71 Magic eye on panel

EAF42 EABC80 Detectors for AM & FM. Just after last IFT can. Different bases so can't mix up

EF40 phase splitter to drive one or both  EL41 EL41

EL41 EL41 Presumably push pull Audio Out. Anodes connect direct to the Audio O/P transformer.


John Drewitz

Thank you for your quick and constructive response.  My tubes are in their proper places.

saba: W II (W2, WII); Freiburg: Woofer repair?
Mark Donen


One of my woofers (the one with the tweeter co-axially mounted) has stopped working. It sounded as if it were rubbing, but now is not working at all. It may be shorting in the gap.

I had not played the radio for a long time, and this just started happening spontaneously. The speakers were not abused by playing very loud.

Is there a way of removing the magnet and re-centering it? Or, if necessary, of repairing the voice coil?

Thank you very much.



Henning Oelkers

Hi, Mark,

there may be several Reasons for the Speaker not working normally. Hopefully the Radio has been stored in a dry Envoirment.

These Saba Speakers can be recentered. The Magnet will not be removed or moved during this Procedure. Instead, if You see the Speaker from back, there are 2 Slit Screws on the Speaker Chassis next to the Magnet, one on either side. They hold the Centering Mechanism in place. You need to loosen these screws a little bit, and then trying to move the Centering Mechanism to have the Coil in the middle of the Magnets Slit. if this can be adjusted You can tighten the screw. That schould do it.

Hope this helps,


Best Regards,


Mark Donen

 Hi Henning,
