    • "Great replacement drivers!" by bostonharris on 4/14/2013
      Overall: 5 out of 5

      A friend of mine had a pair of Paisley SPL 3000 monitor speakers. After about 25 years the foam surrounds had all but disappeared. He asked if I could revive them. I chose these 8 inch drivers as replacements for several reasons. First, they look exactly like the original drivers. Second, the crossover point (2.2 KHz) was a perfect match. Third, the stated specs were extremely tight (I measured them myself). Physically, they were a drop in replacement. After 80 hours of continuous break in I was extremely impressed with the sound of the newly restored speakers. These drivers are well worth the price. If you are searching for an 8 inch driver as a replacement or a new build, consider these 8 inch gems, you will not be disappointed.

      I just received these from MCM a couple days ago and made sure I waited a couple of days before reviewing them. They are replacements for the woofers in my old Paisley Research Reference Two speakers. I was a bit unsure of the sound quality for the price, but am pleasantly surprised. They have plenty of bass for an 8" speaker, and sound good through to the range as well, which is a good thing since the Paisley's are only 2-way. I've had them rocking out some classic rock and country the past couple of days, and the guitar and voice sound quality is excellent. I would purchase these again in a heartbeat.
