The cabinets were trash from new, the woofers likely need surrounds (if they are the alnico ones prossibly worthy... what these are best considred as is a Heil tweeter donor. Mate with 1 or 2 nice midbasses.

I'll have to agree with Dave, they make a good tweeter donor. However, I'll bet they do sound nice. My first exposure to the heils was a pair of 1Bs I bought from a friend at work for a song. The sound blew me away, but really it's the heils. The rest of that speaker is remarkably un-spectacular.

The hardest part of listening to them, is reconciling the different character above & below the XO point.

what really impressed me was the punishment they took when i tested them i didn't have any of my receivers here so i ran my QSC RMX2450 power amp into them and they took it

bet that would sound good just not into the whole bookshelf and and seperate sub home theater sys. i like the old 2&3 way with 12 to 18 inch woofer's and or verry odd shape cabs i wish the woofers were bigger in these but i like the shape but that's just me
