I decided to take a chance and purchased a pair in very rough shape visually but seem to be sonically sound.
S/N IL944 and IL947; I believe 1973?
These cabinets will require a complete makeover. The previous owner removed the veneer on one cabinet and repaired with bondo. The second cabinet will need the existing veneer removed as it is in pretty bad shape (ripples, cracks, etc...). If this is the original veneer, will a heat gun remove the veneer? I want to take my time and not mess up the opportunity to either re-veneer both cabinets or possibly apply a piano black glossy finish. I am new to these type of speakers and will be doing my homework. Any sources of reading material would be much appreciated. I understand that Crites provides some good x-over upgrades but was sad to hear of Bob's recent passing.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Right now I still have my solid state B&K amp which I understand to be overkill for these efficient speakers.
