And do what with them?ūüė≤

They are of an age & rarity to warrant being kept as they are not butchered to make another pair of speakers. I'm sure there are plenty of wammers who would jump at the chance to own them just as they are.

If he likes the sound so much there’s nothing wrong with simply taking the drive unit and crossovers out and putting the original cabs in storage.


If you remember you had me alter them when you had them anyway!ūüėā

Yeah and a great job you did too they sound superb if you strip out the drivers the chances are you won't get that sound again.

Fear not mate, I've got no desire to spoil them. Far easier to find what would replace them and let someone else enjoy these as they are.

Besides, I haven't got anything like the spare time a pair of bespoke cabs would eat up. I barely get chance to listen, never mind make it first.

There's something special about the sound of a large sensitive woofer.

Especially when married to a tweeter and a mid range (or another sensitive woofer in a 2 1/2 way system)

I once built some World Audio WD20Ts which use a Seas concentric  and a Seas bass woofer in parallel. They were quite good, especially after fitting some Batpure supertweeters on the front baffle which made a hell of a diffference. According to Peter Comeau, the designer,  being stuck in the middle of a bass cone, D/C tweeters often need a bit of help for power output reasons. My mate still uses them.

In most coaxes the midrange cone acts as a waveguide which narrows the directivity of the tweeter. Some people may find them "dark" sounding.

Genelec has designed a wide-directivity coaxial:
