Monitor 7B questions

Someone in my area has a pair of 7Bs for $50 w/peerless tweeters. From the pic the drivers look good (no obvious tears/holes) but when queried she rated the cabs 6 out of 10 for condition. She also said the sound volume is low so she knows something is amiss. I think the price is good, maybe I can get them lower and at least end up with good drivers/tweets. I have no problem w/crossover update or frozen magnet repair but just figured I'd check out comments from you guys. I'll be checking them out this week.

    Get them, for 50, that's a good deal.

    I agree, especially if you have DIY skills. And If in working condition those tweeters will get you at least that much if you decide to part them out...

    If sound volume is low, could be the magnets have shifted. They still make a little sound even with the voice coils pinched. For $50 that’s a killer deal!
