Castle chester upgrade
Thought I might throw this out there and see what modifications anyone has done with these speakers?

Pictures? I'm not familiar with these speakers.

My nephew has just bought a pair (his 1st real set of hifi speakers) I was wondering if anyone had worked on the crossovers/cabs/wiring etc. There is very little written about them anywhere on line except people who own(ed) them like them.

I know Winslow audio will upgrade with bespoke crossovers Morel caw 638 and scanspeak 2905 tweeters. This equates to a considerable cost.

As for pics next time I visit I will take some pics including crossovers.

Thanks Ian

Most people would be very happy with a pair of Chesters
in original full working order. You would have to be quite
talented and know what you are doing to "improve" them.

rgds, sreten.

Yeah, mission impossible.
I guess you can't find any "musical" wood anymore...
And old drivers might be in high demand/regard too?!
Plus must be difficult to tune a TL for a new driver, or the other way around.
