It all looks right to me but they are hammered! I would not play them at all and would be packing the woofers and HF drivers for a visit to GPA.

If you can live with the nasty looking cabinets thats fine but do get the components rebuilt.
Do you have the grills?

In your office area I would suggest a protector over the woofers after you get them repaired. A falling guitar going thru a fresh woofer would sure ruin my day. Go to an auto audio shop and buy some woofer grills if necessary.

Lots of guys use them without grills because they look cool. I like them without grills but in your office area with guitars and other stuff happening I would certainly protect the woofers from falling over items.
Also ignorant friends and children have a tendency toward having to touch dust caps and this is why you see so many crunched. Get a wire mesh woofer grill from a car audio place at least, after you get them repaired.
The actual grills will be nearly impossible to find so make them. They won't however protect the woofer if a guitar neck falls into them.
For right around $500 you can have all your drivers back to as new condition and your speakers up and running great.
As I said, if you are not concerned with how they look then thats fine, they are yours. They won't sound any better just because they look great.
You probably won't enjoy the volume of sound they produce unless you can get back away from the horns some. Horns like these start sounding much better when you are 15 feet or further from them. A 19 can easily fill a good sized room with more music then necessary but your preferences may differ.

Pack your woofer well for the shipping and pack the horn drivers seperately. You won't know if the XOs are working right until you get the drivers repaired. GPA will send them back so you can just plug and play them. Mark the wires as you remove them so you know where they go upon the return.

For original foam grills the following site makes them to specification.
If you mention model 19 they probably have the specs to make them.

Great link and he does make excellent foam grills!

19s never had Foam Grills, just foam inserts around the horns and I have never heard mention of SOG making them.
