    Sounds good - you'll get there!

    If you're on 3Si, I may have seen you before, as I moderate that forum. Have two twin turbo Stealths.

    Here's what I had in mind with the 220/222 s. ? The front valance can be rescued from the side offcuts. It looks like you have both crincle lenses .so you are only short of 1 mid driver to make this happen.
    Reflex port on the back. Now we are talking posh L65
    No crossover mods required.

    Just throwing ideas around for grins
    but that is what I would do in the first instance

    Cheers. M

    I'd repair all of them. But I have a compulsion...

    You’re not alone in thinking like that. The problem is time, money, storage space and how many speakers you already have. At least that what my wife tells me

    I have no self control when it comes to that. It really is a compulsion. :D

    I wish I could afford it. I already have a nice pair of polks, cerwins, hpm100s..... I think I am going to part the l220s, sell my hpm100s and see what I can do from there.

    I have 3 128hs. All bad, but one has a nice cone. I think I could recone them with a kit but I would really like to keep the white cones. Is there an affordable option?

    You don't have to do it all in a day. Take your time. Believe me, if you part them out and junk the cabs, a day will come when you will wish that you hadn't. First hand experience talking here.

    Consider donating $25 to AK and become a Subscriber. A lot of parts show up in Bartertown. Or, you might find a home for cabinets or other parts amongst AK's speaker geeks.

    I agree, I will slowly go through them all, except the 220s. One of the lenses was smashed in and it took a big chunk out of the cab. They are just a bit big for me too I guess. If anyone needs parts from them I will trade for parts for L112s, 4311bs... the L150s I will store and think about down the road.

    I would lean towards finding parts before deciding what stays and what goes. Maybe you can get lucky and find someone in driving distance that needs the cabs for a restoration project.

    Good luck!
