    Hi My name is Leah and I'm in Colorado. I'm a musician and director of a modern dance collaborative out here. My dad was a big gear head in the 70's and helped sparked in me a curiosity for making sounds. I recently inherited his Cerwin Vega sound system from 1977. My smaller speakers are MT320 they are originals but they came to me blown out. Its a shot in the dark but i'm looking for replacements. Any leads are appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Greetings from New Scotland over on the other side of the continent. Are you sure the drivers are toast or just need surrounds? Should you just need surrounds you might look toward Parts Express, Springfield Speaker, Simply Speakers or take advantage of our horribly schitty dollar and order from Main Electronics in British Columbia. They are very easy to do. Parts Express has some youtube diy videos on the subject.
    Welcome aboard. I'm sure all on here would be helpful to answer any questions you might have.
    You're lucky...it appears that the used over there is full of fabulous gear on the used.... not so much over'ere... Best and regards.

    Hi and Welcome from South Mississippi. As MarZutra said, check the foam surrounds for rotting. This is common on older speakers as the foam degrades and becomes brittle. A reasonably easy fix even for someone who has never done it before. YouTube has many videos of the process. Good luck getting those CV's singing again.

    What is "blown out" ? Are the edges messed up? Do they just not work? here are some replacements :
