    You can still find used LE5-12 pretty easily, places like eBay.
    The LE5-10 and LE5-8 are exact replacements as well.

    Thanks for the info,should i stay away from speaker parts places replacements? It would always bug me knowing they wernt as original as could be,but if they sound the same then i would maybe consider it.

    There really isn't a compelling reason to even try one of the "replacements". The originals are available and generally seem to work.

    Here's the straight dope on the LE5 drivers:

    BTW, you could use the 6, 8, 10 or 12. the 6 and 10 are black-face, the 8 and 12 are polished.
