    My neighbor gave me some Ohm C2 speakers. How did these things sound when they were new? Anyway, the woofer on one of the speakers is completely shot. The surround has sompletely rotted away. I need to buy a new woofer, what would you recomend. The other speaker's woofer is fine but isn't the factory woofer, should I replace it aswell? There seems to be a tweeter and something else in teh speaker but I don't know what to call it.

    Since none of you seem to know what these speakers sound like, I'll just give some specs so that I can find a good driver to replace the midrange that is ruined. The speaker is about 9.5X11.5X26 inches (that's the inside measurements, I subtracted the thickness of the wood from the outside measurements). The speakers are ported. There is 1 per speaker, 2.5 inch diameter and is about 3 and 5/8th inches long. Now, the speaker is filled with breacing and padded with what looks like home insulation. Plus there's the crossover so I don't know how much internal volume there actually is. I'd say there's only 1 layer of the padding on the inside surface and it may be about the same thickness of the wood, maybe a little thinner. Then's there's the tweeters. Can someone recomend me a midrange?

    O, by the way, the midrange cone is 8 inches across.

    Ohm sells replacement drivers, but you're going to pay for them: $145 ea. for new woofers.

    You could also try to repair the surround on the one factory driver using some thing like one of these surround repair kits from Parts Express.
