16 ohms is irrelevant.  Advertising ratings have changed over the years.  The K-horn used to be rated at 16 ohms, but it had a 4 ohm DCR woofer even then.  If the caps are not leaking oil, they are likely fine.  I'd run them as they are, but have a little discretion on the volume control!

thanks JRH!  I have another set of heresy ii speakers and I gotta say in my opinion the model h's (1961) sound way crisper and just produce better all around sound. I am using the heresy ii set now and just listening to the older ones every once in a while on conservative volume..

I believe you're thinking of the K-500-5000.

 

IIRC, the K-1000-5000 was standard issue for early Heresy, Shorthorn and Cornwall models.
