Id say as much as fixing them up.....

Invest in a nice 8 out LMS, and 3x class A or A/B amps to run them off per 4/6 boxes

Don't invest money and time then run them off crap

I never did understand Millman's Theorem !

Okay half a year later and stripped the drivers out for a looksy. Almost a worst-case scenario as it looks like someone must have deliberately poured RTD drink down at least each mid-range.
So what to do now? Is there anything to try and recover the alcopop saturated cones? If not any recommendations on how to clean the less-doused drivers? Damp soapy cloth? Silver-bullet? Any going cheap :) If not all these recones are not going to make a rebuild hardly worthwhile I'm guessing, since I'm half a world away here in NZ.
 
Pissed-off and bummed out. Any help would be welcomed.

Don't do that! Use a paint that is going to stay on the boxes.

I can't understand why you're getting stressed. Its only a few re-cones. An afternoons fun work.
 
other alternative is to steam them with one of those fancy little gizmo's you see on the shopping channels.

Haha sorry about the negativity I didn't expect this much damage. I have only done like 4 recones ever, and that was hifi years ago so would prefer experts do these. Tell me more about the steaming gizmo? Would this be something for cleaning floors? Will water/steam damage the cone material? I guess if I can clean the less-doused ones it might save a few $$. BTW our dollar has plummeted recently plus every time I seem to import something it seems to get an extra tax these days. Anyone coming to NZ soon? :)

I'll have to check on how to get some recone kits posted over.
Def keen to restore these cabinets but modify them to the 'Ht' trap-style cabinets. As always cheers for the help and info. One link that didn't work was the processor settings link if anyone has that handy as I couldn't find it. "Hvedstrup" posted http://www.turbosound.com/upload-files/File/technical/dsp/dsp.xls
Again thanks all.

Hi I am about to start work on 8 Flashlights. In the same boat as you (NZ). I think we should ask the guys referenced for the contact for replacement 6.5" drivers.   http://www.formidableaudio.com/flashlight-reborn/bss-amps-flashlight-reunited/

Worth mentioning that amphenol in aus do their own EP connector's and nl8. I've only used their nl4 with strain relief but the quality surpassed neutrik.

Nothing like, the 6.5" is a very Turbo driver, if you want Flood you need RC kit from Turbo, the whole setup took Funktion One an age to get right and somehow I don't think they just bought stock PD drivers....
 
It is a system worth sorting out but will require the right bits, other thing do the drivers actually work? If they do a steam clean may be worth a try.....

The PD615WG is a never driver so it wasn't available at the time you mentioned. People are reporting that it is a direct replacement for the LS-6503.
