Try taking the compression drivers apart and cleaning 20 years' worth of dust and crud out of the gaps, you might be amazed...

i had one of them apart just the other day.. it was intermittently not working, found to be the blob of solder joining the terminal to the.. ribbon wire, for want of a better word had failed.

and one night when it didn't work.. i was very surprised at how high i could take the 6.5 above 8 and still get sound out of it!

but yeah, didn't really notice any real difference after cleaning out the gap.

The BMS 4550 come very close to the original EV. The 4545 is very loud and the 4524 (with adapter) play more „easy going“ and fresh (dont know how to describe ist in english. Thats what he said - i will test the 4524 and get back with the results. But this might take time, because atm every penny i get, gets invested in Subs, processing and so on ;)

Oh thank you for the link! Didnt new that there is a driver which is quite similar to the originals. Maybe i will test this one if i blow one of mine and i will post the results. (If someone is interested i can measure the difference to the original TS)

Please do! 

I seems that nobody has tested this yet, but i believe that it could be a perfect replacement.
 
Read on FB that SP member Laurin has replaced the 6,5" to a PD and the 1" to a BMS comp.
Big difference.
 
There is also this project
 

Can you please link to the FB page? 

I think this is very interesting since my Floods will one day fail do to age of drivers. When replacing the CD-103/EV-DH3 to a BMS wich adapters are needed? Do you bypass the internal protection filter in the Floods? Remember that besides protection it raises the CD-103's impedance to 16 ohm.

You only need an adapter for the 4524 - for the screwed throat you need for the turbos. Havent searched for an adapter yet. The Club in which the Floods are installed is called Stereo Bielefeld. Everythinf else you can find on laurins private profile - but there are only a few pics and the info that the mods are bms.
16ohm or 8ohm is not really important for me because i am only running 2 per side. The protection may be usefull but i havent thought about that

PU glue will hold for a good while, or you can just layer up replacement fibreglassing and sand it back

i had a crack in one of mine. i was nervous about using glue that would damage it so i brought it to a local car crash repair place, and they seemed happy they knew what type of foam it was made from and they glued it back for me with something for a tenner.. it's been fine since. i sanded it down a bit and it looks ok. my horns are naturally sort of streaky or inconsistent looking, should probably paint them all nice.

Pardon if im being a bit daft here,but the hf protection makes the 8ohm dh3 16 ohm?
And protects it in which way?
If i were to get lets say bms 4550 would it be advisable to connect it the same as the ev or bypass it?

I use bms 4538 & 4540nd in my tms-2s
They should be as loud even though they're smaller, due to higher sensivity...

There not fibreglass there PU foam, resin and glass may be an option though.  


BMS 4524 was not as light and delicate as the DH3 from our testing, id consider the Fane CD145 (if you can still get them) or CD150 neo, Funktion used these after the floodlight/ DH3, they have a closer sound than the BMS.  

Floodlight HF horn rolls off early, these measurements were not SPL calibrated, but frequency response is correct.
