It's almost impossible to tell without hearing them, but the conditions in which they've been stored will have had an effect. Damp is the worst, such as an outdoor garage or shed.MrT31 said:Hi. I found this thread on google, and appreciate it's a while since used. I wondered if some of you may be kind enough to help with below.
I inherited a pair of Mahogany Mission 751 speakers around 10 years ago and used them initially with amp I also inherited before amp went kaput. So speakers have sat in storage for past 8 years +. I took them to Richer sounds today for soundtest partly with aim of seeing if still functional. If totally blown away with sound I had planned to invest in amp but if not to sell. It turned out to be the latter.......I found the sound v stunted and closed, not v full, overly bright treble and lacking bass. I notice some on this forum lauding sound and wonder therefore if speakers may be faulty. I was wondering if anyone else had noticed similar problems as 751's aged and if this means they are no longer usable. I don't want to sell if they are faulty.
