I still have a vintage pair of these 100w (4-8 ohms) speakers purchased new around 1995. The cabinets are in excellent condition for their age, and the tweeters work fine, however I have just discovered that both the main bass drivers have perished outer surrounds which cushion the cones (see photo). Does anyone think it is worth replacing the main drivers at all? I have been quoted £44 each for a replacement/upgraded pair of newer drivers, but not sure whether its really worth it to do this 'refurb'? It is has been suggested that the crossovers could be upgraded for the gold plated connectors at £24 in addition to this. I am now considering if I should abandon these and purchase the new Wharfedale Diamond 12.0 speakers. Any thoughts would be really welcome.
