HI,
I have a pair of the above speakers,bought new in 1974.B200's (sp1014) T27 (the ones without wires across the face) in a TL enclosure.I abandoned them years ago,they were getting tired & faulty.
However I have sourced some unused B200's & want to restore the speakers. I would like some independant advice on substituting /replacing the tweeters & crossovers. I don't have the knowledge to build crossovers but do have the practical ability & a soldering iron! Any advice ,comments most welcome.

If you can find some reasonably priced Shocked T27 SP1032s.

Then I'd recommend the 37K crossover from Falcon Acoustics, as I have a stand mounted ~6' two-way transmission line built in Bristol, which is similar to (but better than Smile ) the AL23.

Other classical combinations are with Peerless DT10HFC and KO10DT, Isophon KK8 and KK10, various Audax like the 100D25.

Regarding intergration with "modern" tweeters you'll have to poke around diyaudio.com and put up with comments about KEF drivers.
