While this is not a total answer I offer this comment. I owned a pair of Acoustat Spectra 11 hybrids (similar to the SL3's) and inquired with my local ML dealer as to the ability to purchase a ML 8" woofer thinking it would be a better quality driver than the older one that I had. He said that ML wants the original driver back before they release a new one to ensure that it will be going into a ML product. I never phoned the factory to confrim this "story" but advise that if your's are damaged you might want to hang onto them in the event they have to be returned for replacement.
