Spica TC-50 Owners out there?

I have owned a lot of very expensive speakers that come and go but,

I've always enjoy listening to my Spica TC-50's. I did some research
on the internet and found out that there is really no known
replacement woofer for the TC-50. I know that sooner or later the
woofer will come to its end(nothing last forever). Knowing this, I
always take precautions and have to pay attention all the time, like
turning on and off my system in the right order to make sure it
doesn't make a popping sound that can blow out the drivers. I also
don't listen at loud levels for the same reason. This takes out some

of the enjoyment listening to my Spicas. My question to fellow TC-50
owners out there -- How often do you listen to your TC-50? How loud? and
have any blown a woofer yet?

BTW. This is for TC-50 only no TC-60. The TC-60 is newer and uses different drivers.
I've had two pair for over 20 years, never blown a woofer and I have played them loud.. my 2nd pair were the later incarnation with internal brace and supposidly higher power handling and slightly different felt covering on front. I wouldn't worry about the woofers unless you have a 150 or above watt amp and overdrive them somehow.. I did manage to damage a tweeter, one of them started having slightly lower volume output, so I had to buy a replacement pair from Madison.. but I believe these are no longer available so if you blow a tweeter these days.. I don't know what the recourse is..
I no longer listen to my TC-50's but the last time I was using them I had 'em sounding pretty darned good on a Rega Mira 3, Cardas golden Hexlink cables, Rega Vulcan sub really makes em shine.. My TC-50's were slightly modded decades ago, internal wire replaced with cardas and edison-price binding posts. Also removed the front felt.. this actually increases snap and transparency although 'tips' up the response abit in lower treble.
Xiekitchen, What speakers do you listen now?
I have Spica TC-50 speakers and Kinergetics Research Model SW-200 subs. I rarely use them but I can't seem to part with them either. I had the subwoofers and bought the 50's for a 2nd system. The 50's bass drivers are stained and discolored but that has no affect on there performance. When I do use them, I drive them with a Jolida 1000 tube (EL-34's) integrated amp.

This tread has reminded me just how good they sound and they will dusted off this weekend.
Let me know when you're ready to sell
Royy: I have about 10 pairs of speakers to play with (not all super high end), but my major players at this point are:
1. Chario Academy 1
2. Ensemble Animata
3. Rega R-1
4. Snell E-IV
5. AR-11

Spica better than the AR-11 in imaging/soundstage, better a little than Snell as well but those two provide things Spica's can't do. Ensemble and Chario way ahead of Spica in refinement and transparency.
Vegasears: with that tube amp and the Kinergistic subs they must sound just right.. that is the right combo.
Oh ya! I had them set up last night. I had forgotten how good they could sound.
