OHM CAM/PRO-42 speakers, any good? worth the refoam?

Picked these up at a yard sale yesterday, wondering if they're worth the refoam they need.

they look kinda weird, and the tweeter rotates...kinda funky.

any opinions?

The looks like they have good specs, and @ $850 list I would say they are worth a refoam. In my experience most of the Ohm models were decent speakers.

I had a pair of the Pro 32 a while back. I think it was a smaller 6.5" mid woofer and not an 8". They sounded pretty good perfect in my office. and there is no Ohm speaker not worthy of a refoam. The tweeter pops out if you want to experiment a little.

Cool, going to try my hand at refoaming them.

Usually I have a local guy do it, but seeing as I now have a mortgage and about 80% less disposable income I'll try it myself.
