Hi Guys, I picked up a set of 424`s but the woofers have been removed. Does anyone know the specs for the originals? Would like to get these back into action! Thanks for any help.

Check with the boys at Q Components, McBride Loudspeakers, loudspeakers.ca in Waterloo.
They are on Colby Drive.
John Szabo used to deal with them and he used a modified Cambridge Speakers driver with an oversized 4”? Dust cover that he glued onto the woofer cone.
They ( McBride) have a couple of reasonably priced drivers that Will work well in this application.
good luck, happy listening

There were a few different woofer's tweeters and xovers used in this model . Do yours have a phenolic ring , Philips or a Vifa tweeter ?

I had the same issue with my 424's (listening to them now in my office at work). I have seen so many different driver combos in these.
Absolutely lovely speakers both visually and musically. Well worth the effort in getting drivers replaced.
I second McLeod...contact Q Components. They are amazing over there.
They recently hooked me up with some drivers for my ultra rare Akai Mini Monitors...now they sing too.
If you need me to pop my 424's open for driver spec's, just let me know. Would be glad to.
