You are very probably looking for KEF B200 woofers if that's any help. KEF don't make them anymore, but maybe searching for the KEF ones will broarden your search options.

There are a pair of BC1's for sale on ebay:

Though how much it would cost to send them to a "Pretty nice place" I don't know!

Unless you are really lucky and some old Spendor dealer has a set of spares buried under a couple inches of dust, you'll need to run across someone who -- for some reason (ie blown tweeters) -- is parting a pair out.

I once had a pair of BC1's (very nice sounding speakers). Eventually the wires through the cone wore away. Buying old replacements might prove to be a waist of time as they don't last for ever.

Of course, Spendor are still around, have you tried contacting them?

info@spendoraudio.com

They may be able to help/recommend a repairer. London's only a couple of hours by Eurotunnel!

yes, of course we've asked spendor: the new replacement woofers are way too expensive for my friend, so he just wanted second hand ...
we'll continue our search...
regards
