Have a question to see if anyone on here can help. I have a pair of Swan Diva 6.1 speakers that I’ve had for about 8-10 years. After some years of abuse by my kids, a couple of the HiVi 8” woofers have dings and some of the rubber surrounding is coming loose on speaker. I thought it would be an easy replacement….. Meaning, purchase 2 new M8N Hivi’s from parts-express and away I go, but come to find out, my diva 6.1 speaker has M8N-16’s in them. This 16ohm speaker is non-existent for purchase from what I can tell. So that leads me to this question. There are 2 M8N-16’s in my diva 6.1 that are wired in parallel back to the crossover, so that is an 8ohm? Hivi only makes the M8N (from what I can see) in an 8ohm, so do I need to have my crossover redesigned to make these new 8ohm drivers? I’m including a picture of the existing crossover and the M8N-16 speaker. What do I need to do to use new M8N 8ohm drivers? Sorry for the crazy post, just hoping to put some new life back into a pair of my older speakers.

I think you're a bit SOL. You might wanna call some suppliers and see if they can get them. The 8 ohm version won't work. 16 ohm woofers aren't popular anymore.

Thanks for the reply....... so this might be a dumb question. Can I redesign the crossover to somehow use the M8N 8ohm drivers? If I bought two new drivers and wired them for a 4 ohm setup using my existing crossover..... would that even work or sound right?
