I was given a pair of IL30's that turned out to be damaged. One tweeter is torn right down the middle, and the other has a large dent in it that I can't get out. I could replace them, but then I'd have money into what appears to be some pretty basic two way speakers. I don't want them that bad, lol.
So then I thought I could pull everything out of them and put some drivers from GR Research in it. If it works at all that is.
This is what they look like.
6.5" woofer mounted normally. Tweeter unfortunately is mounted to the back of that silver faceplate. Four mounting posts in a square, just a hair under 1.5" between posts. There is a hole in the baffle behind it, the way the faceplate sinks inward the tweeter is sitting inside the cutout. The hole is 3" across. Could be problematic with anything but the original tweeter. It's wired currently to allow for bi-amping, obviously the crossover would have to be replaced anyway. It looks very basic with cheap components anyway.
Box is roughly 1.18 ft^3 internal volume, ported in the rear. Port is about 2.75" across.
So at all workable? Or should I just throw these in the trash?
