    i just took delivery of this pair of RH horns and drivers: https://reverb.com/item/6813665-renkus-heinz-ssh-800-horn-ssd-1800-16-driver
    they were both around 12 ohms when i used the MM. however, 1 seems to play at normal volume and the other plays very softly (switched speaker cables and the low volume followed the suspect driver). i have been running them on low volume jazz hoping to wake up the drivers. i guess i need to crack them open. what should i be looking for?

    I have a set of Emilar EC-175-8B drivers that came with my EH-800A horns sitting on the shelf. Does anyone even use these anymore?

    I had a similar problem with some Cetec Gauss drivers a while back. I was able to fix mine by cleaning connections and by tightening a screw inside. Not sure if that is your problem, best of luck!

    I sold a pair to Joe Roberts who snagged them for AKer setup1. He used them to build an Altec speaker. You can check them out at http://jelabs.blogspot.com/.

    Who knows, he may be interested in your pair.
