Sigh, I guess these are considered vintage?

My wife now...then live-in-gf-soon-to-be-fiance...bought them for me in 1991 or 92. I love 'em. Great sound from such a thin package. But I digress.

One of them has developed a cracked terminal plate where the molded bump for the pushbuttons extends. This results in a somewhat, um, "farty" bass response.

The terminal plate is rather large consider it only has the two pushbuttons. Probably on the order of 6"x4". Perhaps a biamped version was available?

I'm not experienced in speaker repair specifically (although I am handy in the woodshop and with electronics) so I don't want to simply buy a standard (but smaller) replacement terminal plate and bridge the gap with MDF.

Why? I presume that would ruin any value the speakers might have (I stress the if any as I am not familiar with their vintage market value), but more importantly I don't want to compromise their sound.

Any thoughts, advise or taunts?
