Hi Romain, thanks for replying. That was your seventh post? I feel honoured :)

It's encouraging to hear they are as they should be. Setup isn't perfect where they are, but that's temporary. Still have to sort a good amp out. Just negotiated on some Pioneer Elite units but they won't arrive till early next year ...but that's another story. I will probably either get my PM-64 serviced or stretch to buying that PM-95 I mentioned. It's really darn awkward having all these speakers and no amp lol...

Speaking of servicing, you mention the filter needs restoring - I take it I have to remove that via the front by removing the bass drivers first. Then is it just a case of re-capping them, or what else do I need to do? Can I test them first to see if they actually do need restoring? As a collector I do prefer to keep things in original condition where possible, but of course there's little value in maintaining faulty parts obviously!

Have you checked the polarity of the loudspeaker cables? Sorry, if I ask the obvious but it is a common mistake and happens easiely when using cables which are not marked properly.

Good question! I've since removed the cables since as I was just borrowing the amp I used, but maybe that was it... not a mistake I normally make though lol. I'm really going to have to wait until I get hold of a decent amp, which might be a while...
