I was given some speakers that I had built back in the 70's and that had been in use at a churhc for about 20 years or more. They were made to look nice, but I will rebuild them to look tough. I also want to upgrade them from 25 watts to about 150 watts or more.
This is what I bought at a Hamfest to rebuild the speakers with.
This picture compares an old speaker with one of the new ones.
Initially this is what initially had to work with. I only had one of these bass speakers.
Here is one cabinet stripped down and the old speakers sitting on top of it.
I painted the front plywood black and started reassembling the speakers. I traded something for some tweeters. They are rated at 75 watts. I also added some grills to protect the woofers.
