Just rebuilt Monitor 5A 's with new MW6502 drivers and rebuilt xovers...
one of the original woofs was toast, the magnet motor had been separated.
the original MW6500 woofs measure 6.6 ohm, that the old complete speaker measured about 6.8 ohm impedance..
The new factory MW6502 driver measures 4 ohms, and when assembled , brings the
newly rebuilt speaker to about 4.4 ohms impedance..
Any concerns about the drop in resistance ? going from 6.6 to 4 ohms ?
It appears that the MW6502 drivers are NOT actually exact replacements..
I tried them out last night, and I will say I'm impressed with the sound..
this is a vintage system I'm rebuilding for a friend..
