Hi to all, Please can i have your opinion on the said speaker the sound is not that good to my ears. Do you guys think if i recap the crossover will be beneficial or i'm only going to waste my money. Thanks in advance for your help.

Those drivers look similar the those used in the Keilidh. Those were very nice speakers. They were very musical. If they are they the same, these would be great speakers. So for my part I would say go for it.

They really shouldn't have deteriorated totally.

I would note the wiring polarity to the drivers, then totally disassemble and have a look for corroded connectors and perhaps broken solder joints.

What is wrong with the sound, exactly? That can help diagnose the problem. You can put your hand over the tweeter, for instance, and listen to the bass on its own more or less.

I find the bass less (thin) while the tweeter is harsh. Now Im using subwoofer to have a better bass.

Last time someone complained of that fault, he found that putting his Musical Fidelity MC4 speakers up on stands to ear height cured it.

It looks like they are bass light. That would suggest they work best close to a wall.

Interesting speaker. It's designed to be fast in response. That usually means a small bass coil, which would explain the bass light nature.

Aha i found something, previous owner replaced the tweeter with scan speak. I tried covering the tweeter with my hand i noticed that it's too much "skeeech" causing fatigued to my ears. This might be the reason it's overshadowing (don't if it's the right term) the low frequency. I had a mail correspondence with hiquphon for the correct tweeter replacement. Will post the result after.
