Besides that, and I personally think is an "extra", definitely not the main money maker at all, I guess they take a hard long look at their most popular products and make a few extra for "over the counter" sales.
Legends in my view are "civilian versions" of what they make by the truckload for Fender, Peavey, Crate, and 1000 others, and the "Greek" ones (Alpha/Beta/Gamma/Delta) an end user version of whatbthey make in bulk for PA manufacturers.
So if you look at your midrange speakers and find resemblance to "User" version Beta-something they probably *are* from that series.
On customer orders they could have been made in 2/4/8/16/32 ohm, painted pink or glitter metallic blue or whatever, using a dozen different cones, a dozen voice coils and so on, so donīt discard them just because they donīt *exactly* match one of the retail versions.
Plus: IF Eminence supplied the woofers, why not the rest?
My curiosity is mostly about the efficiency and frequency response of the driver. I guess i could measure it if it comes to that. I mean, in case some day i want a better treble solution, it would give me a target to shoot for.

I'm just about set up for speaker measurement though.

I'd be interested in knowing what you are able to get for a response out of your fairly inexpensive pair.

You have me contemplating what service I should do with my set. I totally agree with the new caps as we all know how well they tend to age. I just don't know how much time I have to do stuff on mine but you sure are giving me an itch to do something. How is progress on speaker #2?
