Where to buy replacement speakers


I have two large speaker cabinets, 36" wide X 24" deep X 24" high that I inherited from my father. He purchased them in 1958 as part of his "component stereo system" and the speakers as you can imagine are pretty much gone. I would like to restore the solid wood cabinets and replace the speakers but I'm not sure where to go for speakers large enough to fill them.

Hello and welcome to the 'Shack.

I think a good place to look would be www.partsexpress.com . They have tones of drivers.

You would first want to determine what yu need though. What kind o speakers are they? How many drivers per cabinet? Do you know the crossover specs? Cabinet volume? These are important to choosing the right drivers. Intended use playe a big roll, too. What are you going to use them for?


Onkyo 805 | Definitive Technology ProTower 400s | ProCenterC2 | BP2x | ProMonitor 100s | Klipsch RSW-10 subwoofer| Optoma HD70 | Play Station 3 | Toshiba HD-A3| Sony 400 disc CD Changer

Half a pound of drywall dust in each eye seems to hide the usual twinkle.

You will have to do an evaluation of the cabinets to determine the best drivers to use with them. Particularly the internal volume. Then you can match a low frequency driver to the cabinet and then other drivers that are complementary.

I forgot to add you will likely have to use a new crossover system as well that is matched to the drivers you choose.
