are kevlar driver better, same or indiffernt to usuall speakers
As in a previous post I was tempted to buy a pair of Wharfield EVO PACIFIC 3s used for $300.Some of you directed me to Music Direct and showed me that new last years model for a pair went for under $600. I thought the price was good but still I did not hear them at all.In the interum I picked up a pair of Bose 601 series 1s which I am in the process of refoaming and the walnut cabinets are in great shape . My real question here is the Kevlar driver that Wharfdale and B&W uses much better than the speakers from the past.To me I would answer w/o knowing that Kevlar would last a life time and be much more durable. As far as the work on the 601s go I gutted them, cleaned thoughly the cabinets brought back the sheen w/ some good furniture polish and I'm just waiting for the surround kit to be delivered any day now.
I do have one important question to ask of you guys,yes the surrounds suffered from dry rot and that is common w/ 30 y/o speakers and will be addressed but I have 1 other concern that the paper cones them selves seem to be pretty dry.Is there any treatment to the speaker themselves to bring them back to near peak performance or if they work they work and that's it.If these are better than my Infinitys then they will go into 2-chl system duty and the Infinitys will be h/u to zone 2 on the Yamaha RX-V665.Please if any treatment is available let me know.Whether or not you guys approve of the Bose 601s have gotten the best reviews of any Bose product and for $20 I got a bargain here plus a project to keep me busy.Thanks, no put downs needed just advice please....
