No one can do this better than you Craig!

Now looking at how the old glue was applied; it tells a lot why the magnet shifted...

Keep filling the Workbench forum with exiting projects Craig!

I have been listening to the speakers for a couple weeks now occasionally, seems no issues with them at all really.

I may now take some measures to stiffen the enclosures and recap, and check the resistors haven't caused heat damage. 

and in background I now have to consider making some stands myself since these are so rare now.

I want to lift them 18in / 45cm from the ground over a low sideboard which I think is not possible with the original stands.

the low bass seems present but modern music with very low frequencies seems to be confused. 

bass guitar and drums seem well reproduced though.

classical music really protrays well. 

I think high treble could be improved with cap change, is there a kit for caps / resistors?

also the sockets for the speaker wires at the back are giving really quite a loose connection, I've not seen any common solution for this yet, can anyone help? 

 

and thanks again to Craig... Yes - thumbs up
