Teradacto58 , May 4, As to the resistors, these can become brittle with age – I have had one literally crumble to dust beneath my fingers when all I was doing was gently moving it to the side so that I could read its value! Just clean ’em out with Kontak!
Never heard of tweeter coil lead out wires melting. I’d try to celeestion re-wiring with silver plated cable. My one gripe is the lower midrange attack is definetely lacking when it comes to heavy rock though.

Im a big fan of the STA! The DL8 reproduces a natural bass without boominess, and few, if any, unpleasant quirks. I own 3, and love them all.
