Never seen purple monitor wedges before!

Bargain or not will depend on the state of the compression drivers. Google suggests new nearly 400 each.

So a few observations will reveal.

1 crack in cheekbutt ok not funny but i think a panel behind for support is the way to go

2 the colour purple who cares i think im taking them to bits

3 the burnt stuff not look good but check graph for response

4 the dog chewed ports (ok some numpty with cutters) parts from a super dooper pair of cheapieshitey wharfedales have the same diameter ports that i have lying around

At first upon inspecting the compression diaghrams it looked like what appeared to be a crack in one (buttcheek jokes aside) slightly running finger nail aolong it suggested this,

Bloody hairline glue trace across it

Glass panel dont know where that came from???? during uploads

Now the burnt stuff (insulation sound proofing) is charred and white not dirty and black from muck and dust etc trust me crispy and burnt

possibly from the corner capicitor on PCB?

I can only guess it was the woofers getting hot. Wedges get a huge amount of abuse. If the drive units work I wouldn't worry
