Default old Fisher speakers, newbie questions

I found a pair of speakers for $15 at the local Salvation Army. There is a sticker on the back that says:

The Fisher
Speaker System

The cabinets are about 2 feet tall, a foot wide, and a foot deep. They have a 2.75 inch tweeter, a 4 inch midrange, and a 9 inch woofer. (measurements are from the outer edges of the surrounds)

The woofer surrounds were intact when I bought them, but completely disintegrated when I brought them home and started using them.

Are these worth putting any time and money in to, either new drivers or new surrounds?

I think up through the early 70's fisher made good quality stuff. The fisher during the 80's was usually low-fi rack systems with cheap thin-walled cabinets.

If nothing else, they would be a pair of speakers you could practice putting new surrounds on.

post some images and someone may recognize them and give you better advice.

Fisher made lousy speakers and solid state gear. Their tube units were OK though.
