Just an update: I put these into service but forgot to reply back with how they where doing.
Well, Te Speakers sound decent, but I didn't have any sense of a 'before' because I got a'hold of them in a torn up condition to begin with.
They still sound 'medium' as in less than stellar Highs, but they certainly can hold the juice so to speak when kicked into loud-mode.
I had them as some Front Channel in a surround sound setup, not my main set-up, but the one in the 'barn'.
I've since dismantled all that rig, so I'm going to be shuffling things around a bit- the speakers that currently service the everyday Radio action are actually Outdoor Ratted and they are going to my Buddie's Under Eve Deployment.
That'll likely press these
refurbished Speakers into service as the 'play the radio so I can hear it out in the yard' duty.
Once things get situated I'll report back.
In the On Deck Circle are three pairs of other speakers awaiting some love and attention. And next time I'll not be so messy with the adhesive...
