My friend has had these in storage for a long time. We hooked them up, and they need some attention.

I have attached some pictures and if anyone here would be kind enough to give me some information and if they are worth saving or putting money into.

The woofers seem to play fine and the surrounds look good and do not seem to be rotted, frayed, or have any tears. The rheostats for the tweets definitely need work and I would think the crossover too.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. If you have any questions, let me know and I can ask my friend if I don't know.

The woofers have been replaced. They are not the originals.

I had a pair of Reds with the original drivers. They were OK, but nothing spectacular. I wouldn't spend a lot of money on them.
The midrange and tweeter drivers look original, so you could likely part them out. Those drivers are used in other Burhoe models.

heard the blue's.... to say they were ok would be an exaggeration.
