Hey all, first post on here and first time I have ever thought about using Kef's. I have been offered free pair of original Kef 105's. They need new tweeters and mayb new mids as well, not sure about the mids till I get the speakers though. So my first question is, what should I replace them with, and where can I buy these? I live in the west mids area of the UK so I can go to any shops easily in that area. The next questions is, what should I do with them. I am very much of a fan of home cinima, and need a new set up as mine hase just died Sad and was woundering if I could use these speakers as part of it. Any suggestions of good kit to use with these? P.S. I'm a uni student so I don't have a huge budget. Thats all for now.

Marc.

As I am "a local" don't bother looking for parts or drivers in the West Midlands, there aren't any.

So, expect to either spend ~50 per blown drive unit at Richard Allen Recone Lab / Wembley Speakers or part them out on ePay, so you'll either spend one or gain two hundred quid.

If you cannot solder well or lack mechanical skills to rotate the bass units in their cabs by 180 degrees, "part them out".

Once done up and properly driven with a 150 Watt rms / 8 Ohm power amplifier you won't need a centre speaker for an AV system and still enjoy trouser flapping bass.
