    In my experience, those old crossovers last almost indefinitely. Very low current through those high efficiency systems. Rather, it is mainly a matter of how they have been used - damp, abused, pro...

    Bottom line: THERE JUST ARE NO PARTS! Recently researched the aftermarket offerings for LE15 and the basic R is not even correct. Would have to re-tweak the crossover, etc. Loosing battle.
