Hi - do you still require help with your speaker?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Sure, I'd like to get a view on whether it's worth repairing the speaker .... it's apprx 20 years old but was very good.
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
the sound quality of the other is still good
Expert:  Paddy replied 7 days ago.

Great speakers but due to age I would replace - if you repair there is always be the change there will be another issue with the tweeter it is old and has more than likely been used quite a lot - can find on line quite cheaply & simple to fit

Makes sense - I'll replace in that case. Thanks!

If you can find at the right price I would replace tweeters in both speakers

Hope I was of some help would be grateful for a rating so I can close the query
