one speaker is 5.9 ohm the other is 6.3 Is this normal?

I don't know what normal DC resistance is on those, but they seem close enough to work together in a system.

Well, here's the normal impedence specs for most of the LE5 models:

LE5, LE5-2: 5.5 to 6.5 ohms
LE5-5: 5.6 to 6.6 ohms
LE5-6, LE5-10, LE5-12: 4.9 to 6.1 ohms
LE5-8: 5.6 to 6.8 ohms
LE5-9: 5.1 to 6.3 ohms

Given this, unless it's an LE5-6, 10 or 12, it's within spec. Even if it WAS one of the three of those, I probably STILL wouldn't worry about it, unless the midranges SOUND like there's a problem. That kind of minor variation in DCR isn't going to be audible, without other accompanying issues...

Thanks for the info! They are le 5-2 . Ebay specials out of pro-monators (what a shame) for my l-100's
