    Fried was supposed to have been a pretty good salesman; do you think the fact that he was importing IMF speakers back then that used KEF B139s had something to do with the “death” of paper cones? 😊

    I didn’t see when that was written but I think it was the 1960s; Fried has been dead for years. Was probably news back then I suppose.

    David, you are correct, a cap value of 3uF is too low for this application; a 10uF cap should do and I have one in my parts junk box. I have not seen any published spec on the impedance of the driver...

    Thanks and your help is much appreciated! Neither the spares nor the 250ti are going anywhere, at least not without me! They are "permanent" members of the family. :)
