I answered a craigslist ad for a set of SDA SRS 2's and was actually the first to reply out of 6 in 30 mins. I need to get a life. In any case the cabinets were in poor shape, missing both front grills and each cabinet is missing a cloth side piece, but I decided they were worth the trouble to look at since the seller said the speakers were in good functional condition.
Well the sad truth is all 4 tweeters are fubar. The VC's have all been spun and the hair-like wires all severed. The good news was all of the 8 drivers are fine and the crossovers are fine. The wood tops are in nice shape, but the bottoms have splits. I can fix the bottoms with some clamps and poly glue.
I borrowed the SL2500's from my monitor 10's and will most likely borrow the 2000's from my 7c's tonight to see how they sound close to factory.
Okay my question is; I have a bunch of round tweeters, SL6503'2, SL6000's, SL5006's, and SL5501's. I know it's a shot in the dark but can I use any of these with my SDA's? I don't know how they match up spec-wise with the old SL2500's or the RDO replacements.
I also know that I would have to make a custom wood bezel to fit the old rectangular tweeter recess and this too would make them stand proud of the drivers.
I paid $100 for the pair and the cabs, aside from the cosmetics and splits in the bottoms are sound.
