Hello,

I can purchase a good looking set B110B sp1057 as spare for my 105.4.
Because mine have become a little white in the middle near the dustcap, so maybe it's better to have a spare set. What is a fair price for such a set? Rolling Eyes

The white you mention is just the wood glue it was primed with separating from the cone. It's not a serious fault. The problem starts when the dust cup is separated as it fails the sealing of the enclosure.

Look for brand new B110s at Falcon Acoustics. No point in purchasing a spare driver that may be as old or older than the one you are using.

Only issue is Falcon Acoustics furnish SP1003 equivalents. But you can ask them if they have any that can match an SP1057 or if it's possible to replace both drivers.

There was a very nice looking set for sale and i just wonder if i would buy them fot the right price as a spare set. Mine are working great. But i think that another SP number means also another filtering.

Thx for your reply.

I've found a set of B110-sp1057 for a fair price, i paid 46,95 for the set including delivery cost. They are in a very good state. Now i must find a nice set of T33A SP1074, so i,ve spare parts for the future. Wink

Good looking and a good price. Store them in a dark dry place, cones up and don't stuff them into any sort of plastic wrapper or bag.

Thx for the advise. I made a simple stand of three pieces of wood where i screwed the 2 speakers against, made a drawing of it.
