Hi, I bought some speakers a little over a year ago that I really like the sound of and I have a couple questions about them.

1. Does anyone recognize that logo on the front of the covers? I suspect that they might just be someones DIY project

.

2. Unfortunately one of the mid ranges has stopped working. I pulled it from the cabinet and the speaker appears to be totally dead.
The mid range is a Seas 3" dome model h204

http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/approx-3-midrange/scanspeak-discovery-d7608/9200-10-3-dome-midrange-d75mx41/

That is the closest replacement I have been able to find, does that seem like it will sound at least as good?

3. I also would imagine that the crossovers could use some updating. Any recommendations on that?

Thanks for any info!

That Scanspeak midrange is probably the closest thing to the Seas you will find. You will want to replace both/all.

You might want to replace any electrolytic capacitors, or all capacitors, with metallized polypropylene. That can get expensive for large values. You might just replace large value electrolytics with new ones.
