n/m, I pulled out the tweeters and crossovers and junked them.
The model number might be somewhere on a label (over the connections in the back). Hate to admit it, but I remember these from the mid-70's. They are a scaled-down version of their famous "heil" tweeters. The company still exists and they might be able to help. Here is their home page: http://www.essspeakers.com/ and the page where you order parts (or you can call): http://www.essspeakers.com/order_information.htm Now, whether it's worth it to repair them...I saw some reviews of their high end speakers at audio-review. Those were available for less than $500 used, like here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=14993 Check out those tweeters! They are a very radical and famous design. If that's the value of the high end speaker, I doubt that the cost to repair yours would be worth it. I checked ebay for parts. These tweeters might match: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...&category=3276 These passive radiators might: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...&category=3276 These might be the woofers (though yours look like 8" and these are 10") http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...&category=3276 Personally, I felt they were way over-priced when new, but there were people who loved them. If you ever manage to get them fixed, tell us how they sound to you. By the way, those big ESS speakers at ebay are a real bargain, but they require alot of power to sound decent. Shipping..."They measure 36" inches high by 16"inches square and approx 50lbs each."...might be a bit high. These are the ones you can definitely get parts for.
These have a 6 1/2" driver and 8" radiator, so all that is too big The tweeters are still in fine condition I believe. I'm thinking more along the lines of replacing the driver with something like this: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd..._ID=7769&DID=7
