I have a pair of Cadenza's. The B200s has a scratchy voice coil. They seem to sound OK, but I'd like to get hold of a replacement pair or maybe replace them with newer type driver units. Has anybody tried to replace only the B200s, or even gone further and improved the whole speaker system by upgrading the cross over network, T27 and resonator.
Regards

Turn the drive unit through 180 degrees to try to "equalise" the sag in the suspension.

If you've a large amplifier, say >>100 Watts RMS SS, try the 103SP from Falcon Acoustics - owner's of "bottle jobs" should avoid this upgrade.

If you hate the KEF's that much, sell them and buy something else.
