Um, not worth spending a lot of cash into, BUT, totally worth using them to learn about speakers! :)
If you wan to, come over to the DIY forum where you'll find a lot of peeps who will help you do just that.
It could be a simple bad wire, or blown cap/resistor.
As a learning exercise, worth fixing. As a restoration project, not so much.
You could as saiod, Frakenspeaker them.
Or contact Technics and do the rebuild yourself from orig or current drivers and x overs.
You might get lucky and find that technics still has a line on orig parts for them. Some makers do. Some do not. Wouldn’t hurt to make a call and find out.
As was said, there’s a real learning experience in there somewhere just waiting.
Great great suggestions. I am currently performing "open box" surgery to learn and observe the operation of a 3 way. After reading countless threads on many topics, I feel that I can put them to use as donors and then put them out to pasture. I would rather spend the $ on FS52 or Elac F6.
Thank you to all!!
If the cabinets are in good shape, they are probably worth a re build. They are a 15 inch 3 way from the 1980's from a rack system. Tweeters are a 3 inch cone, mid is a 5 1/4 inch cone.... cheap electrolytics in the crossover. I wouldn't mess with a repair period. If the boxes look good, I'd probably salvage the woofers, replace the mid & tweeter and customize a simple crossover. You could get very satisfying results.
