I just hooked up a pair of these to find they lacked any bottom-end and additionally the woofer in one became scratchy and rattly. It took me a few seconds to realise it must be damaged (both due to surrounds drying out and being dropped in transit and possibly abused by former owner).

The cloth surrounds are dried hard, almost brittle and I fear the spider and/or coil may have gone.

I'm not experienced, so I'm about to take them to a repair guy but I'm concerned because he said they may be a throw-away item and if so, would need a new speaker assembly and new crossover.

'Start from scratch' as he put it.

I'd appreciate some expert advice as he claims they can't be reconed - I forget the reason. Refoamed, yes, but not reconed.
