    Condolences and congratulations.

    Perhaps a Mcintosh 2x05 type amplifier and an accompanying pre would suit the mood/period (?)

    Modern gear is certainly suitable as well, but somehow wouldn't...

    -opinion-

    Not where I'd personally go for a daily listener (14" woofer crossing over to a small paper tweeter is bound to have its limitations),
    but they are old with fewer and fewer of them in...

    "...but this voltage needs to be higher than any expected signal peak voltage."

    I challenge this repeated assumption. I suggest the bias voltage only needs to be sufficient to mitigate low level...

    If you just pick the correct two terminals on an 8ohm L-pad, you'll have a variable resistor (low ohms to ~40ohms)

    Xmax for 128H is only 1/3" ... 2" is right out.

    I would guess 1) simply expecting too much and over driving the system or 2) the box tuning (passive radiator in this case... seems there was a...

    If it's already tuned to be ~30Hz (say 5-6ft3 vol, 4" long x 4" diameter port), I'd just start with it as-is (running through some scenarios).

    I would expect that to be fairly close to neutral (no...

    If the popping is happening with vinyl as a source, use a high pass filter (whether its called a rumble filter or infrasonic filter)... the L150 is capable of enough LF energy to feedback through the...

    More opinion: the 076 diaphragm is likely worth much more than the 044Ti (I am quite familiar with both drivers). Very much worth the trouble of trying to get what you paid for.

    Opinions:

    I'd wait to see what the seller says before doing anything.

    Other than the box, there's perhaps only a bit more value in the "new" Ti diaphragm than there would be for a very clean,...

    Manually-rotated 'lazy suzan' works OK for this kind of thing. A few bucks at a housewares store.
    Also useful for refurbishing speakers drivers in general.

    Handy info, if you work at a place that maintains large optical telecscope first-surface mirrors. :D

    Just paint the 034 lightly if cosmetics are a bother.

    First time I heard those drivers, they were in a similar cabinet. Left a good long-term memory :)

    Would only add that if you go with plywood, I'd suggest looking into a void-free type less likely to rattle or resonate, such as baltic birch or "appleply"

    Quite a range of options, but personally, I'd focus on the cosmetics (perhaps a light spray of aluminum-looking paint on the tweeter dome). How's the grille and cabinet?

    Commonly sold as 'stranded hookup wire'. Bigger strands make for less floppy wire.
