    Hi wondering if these are worth fixing up for sale at £120 rosewood 753s with grills and spikes
    has 1 blown tweeter and a faulty crossover
    one speaker works fine
    the other speaker has a blown tweeter and the 2 bottom bass speakers not working
    but he says that he has swapped the tweeter and the crossover from the good one in to the faulty speaker and everything works ok
    so looks like just a faulty crossover and a tweeter
    Worth repairing or is it the freedom version the one to get

    Hi mate, did you repair the 753's? I can categorically say yes you should repair them. I have replaced crossovers and tweeters and currently have them connected to a refurbished Quad 306, fed by a Lightspeed attenuator, Chord Qutest DAC and Microrendu as my Roon endpoint. It sounds incredible.

    The tweeter was the weakest part of the 753 and poorly integrated (run far too hot)
    Just bung in a pair of decent modern tweeters and rebalance

    The F's don't go for much over 300 on the Bay

    Hi Daniel, can you tell me why you;ve replaced them ? i have the same model, i've noticed some harshness on the tweeters on high volumes but it-s something wrong with the crossovers too? or is just the fact that are pretty old? did you replace them from willy's hifi too? it sounds better than before? many thans in advance!

    This is by far the best long term solution. There are so many tweeters available now at all price point so that makes it easy and affordable. Your speakers will probably sound way better than before on top of that.
