lARrybody Posted July 26, 2019 Report Share Posted July 26, 2019 I have been looking for a set of 10pi speakers for a while now. Yesterday I went up to Chicago to help my son wall mount a TV and set up his home theater. I came home with a set of MK1 10pi's. You might have seen them listed on the auctions site. They were in my watch list for over two months with no takers. Tuesday I finally contacted the seller and ask what his bottom line was on them. I explained that I did not want to insult him with too low a offer. He replied that they were not his and he was selling them for a friend. He said I should make a offer and he would pass it on to the owner. They are by no means pristine, more of a project set. The woofers did not look quite right with large dust caps. I made him a substantially lower offer and to my surprise it was accepted. Here they are today sitting on my patio table. I pulled one of the woofers to see what they were. They are actually the original A4 woofers that someone has refoamed and added oversize dust caps and painted the cones with some paint/glue type mixture. They really slopped it on there thick. My question is what type of solvent or paint striper and what technique should I try to clean them up without damaging the cone too much. Maybe the answer is to get different woofers. Here are some close up pictures. ++ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
