My pair of Macassar Ebony Fortes bought new but stored away for years. Recently refreshed the wood to minimize some bumps and bruises and, primarily, to undo an ill-advised refinishing job from a long while back. Did a mild upgrade to crossovers replacing electrolic (because of age) and upgrading the caps on the tweeters to basic Dayton Metalized Polypropylene and a nicer Dayton resistor. Don't do much "critical" listening where I'm using them so that's probably as far as I'll go with the crossovers. Did, however, find that I had at some point replaced one of the tweeter diaphragms and the two speakers didn't match so used that as an excuse to get a pair of the Crites titanium replacements. Probably do a little more work on the cabinets at some point but liking things enough as-is after rearranging the "small" system in the living room to accomodate I'm just going to enjoy them for a while. Purchased when I was in college and working part time at a stereo shop. Last pair of Fortes made in this finish with inspection stickers signed by the man himself.
