Picked one up yesterday. Driver needing recone(cone kicked in) and front baffle broken with missing bassreflex tubes. There are two tubes, what are the original dimensions 135mm x L?
The voicecoil on the driver seems in good order so were thinking I could combine it with a aftermarket recone kit, since Im on a budget. What are your toughts on this? Been repairing speakers for a few years so its doable Id say.

I had a pair and they now belong to Subwoof on this forum. Perhaps the photos will help you with replacing the tubes?

Thank you, this will do. The bracing were also knocked off so its a bit of puzzle.
Removed the voicecoil from the driver, measured dc resistance 4.9ohm. it have been playing and rubbing so I guess part of it is shorted out. I would like a original recone but being on a budget and restoring another cabinet later, I need advice on which aftermarket kit to choose.
