    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.

    Nice. I stand by my suggestion as stated.
    First time I heard those drivers, they were in a similar cabinet. Left a good long-term memory :)

    Hmm. That's a lot of weight to cantilever out from a particle board face. Particularly long-term or in humid locations.

    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"

    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"...

    So sonic benefit (original question) would be more tied to the condition of the replacement units than anything else.

    At one point, I believe forum member Edgewound also had assembled parts to form a proper 2245H recone kit.
    So yes, quite a few options for those attempting to maintain this particular driver.

    "The description say Phil Collins is playing but I haven't found a song with him yet and when Eric Clapton introduces 'the band' he doesn't mention Phil Collins."

    "Music for Montserat" perhaps.
