Ok, I just moved into my new home, and one of my brilliant movers dropped my Quad speakers. They were in their original boxes, but they must've fell hard, as one corner of the speaker has been crushed. I'd like to put the drivers in a new 'matching' Quad cabinet (birds eye maple), but I haven't the faintest on where to even order one. If I can't get the same one... I'd need an alternative set with that won't adversely color the sound (keep the same sound signature). If none of these work... how would I go about fixing the speaker to make them look both the same?

I NEED HELP! I'm so depressed and upset about what happened! frown.gif

If I can't get a replacement cabinet... does anyone know the internal volume of these speakers? I'm thinking of getting a DIY speaker box from Parts-Express.... something like...

Cherry Speaker Cabinet
240

Can't help with the cab volume, but you need to check the magnet on the LF driver has not shifted in the impact.

I haven't opened them up yet, but I have played them for a few hours... and they sound just as they did pre-damage. Should I assume they are ok?
