I have a pair of Snell EIIIs that I bought about 20 years ago and had them refoamed a few years ago by Nevisonics in Louisville (just Google it - I think the website is woofer.com or something) It was easy to take out the woofers, cut the wires, pack em' up and send them off. I had another pair to use in my main system. Got them back, reinstalled woofers (simple) and I don't regret it at all. I just bought a pair of MartinLogans, but moved the Snells to my theater system. I am not sure I can get rid of them, they make movies and music sound better than what I had in the theatre. And I realized just how good a speaker they are as I am breaking in the Logans. I would not get rid of them. They are efficient, balanced, neutral,rear firing tweeter, bi-wirable, (and I have the original Snell-built stands for the EIIs)and I think they are worth more to someone than what the market pays for them now. The coils are hand wound to an exacting tolerance, etc. In other words, we got a lot for our money when we originally bought them, and it would take a lot of today's dollars to get that. Good luck with your decision!
