    Couple quick questions:

    The 108H drivers feel very stiff to me. Is this normal? They aren't really any more flexible than the LE5-11s.

    The 044-1 tweets, are these the same diaphragms as the 044? What gives them the bronze color?
    It's supposed to be "gold" color (before it tarnishes/ages). My L250s have one of each (044 and 044-1).

    Good deal! Your avatar was distinctly lacking some non-rectangular shaped speakers.

    Yes, already read that thread. What I still don't know is what's the actual difference, other than the color. The "gold" also flakes off just as easily as the aluminum does, it's the same Dacron dome underneath too. Is it not also aluminum or is it some other alloy?

    the L250s don't get to consort with the rest of the family till they are done in the shop.

    This may sound like heresy.. Perhaps it is..

    If the only problem with the tweeter is the pushed in dome.. pull the tweeter apart.. if it's like the 035Ti (I think it is) the diaphragm is removable. a gently push through the center of the diaphragm will likely return it to its original shape nearly perfectly. I had a couple dead 035Ti diaphragms and did this to one as I had it apart and it popped out perfectly... It's worth a try.

    The LE14H series are a a little more of a PITA to put new surrounds on than most woofers, due the the very small lip on the frame, but still very do-able. I used ebay vendor looneytunes2001 - Rick Cobb or you could use others for the correct surround.

    Good luck and congratulations. You will like them. BTW, they are not a speaker that instantly wows you with their prowess.. but you will settle into them and likely use them for your referenece. I did and do..
