    Absolutely not. Just more steps of level adjustment (resolution, in this case, not inherently improving the signal as heard or audio resolving power).

    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?

    Figure on replacing the ferro-fluid/oil in the gap (if not done by previous buyer or unknown). Looks like the stock Be dia.

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

    Do the controls on the back respond as expected (per driver)? The L-pad/attenuators can become faulty.
    Move them back and forth, vigorously. There should be no dropouts, but perhaps some "scratchy"...
