Hi all,

I have a pair of KEF K120 bookshelves.

The surrounds on my old drivers are complete destroyed and I am keen to get any sound out of them that is decent.
What I need is two drivers that will fit into the speakers and work with the crossover. Of course, getting matched pair B160 SP1283 's would be perfect, but it seems to be too much to ask. To be honest, this is not about restoring some really amazing speakers to new condition.

Is there another PAIR of B160 drivers (model number not absolutely important) that will fit in the speakers, and sound "normal"?

Any help is appreciated!

Likely far less expensive than replacing the whole driver. Depending on your location, surrounds are quite reasonable, and the job isn't all that hard.
