Even though I liked them, I wanted to achieve my dream of a L or L pair. My day came, picked up a nice pair with all drivers perfect and only in need of a little fine steel wool and oil to make look nice. But the sound I said then I will get these someday. Now is my time. They sound as close to perfect as any speaker I have heard the past 10 years.

Thanks in advance! Here they are: Whatever you paid, I paid less as I got mine from the original owner who was losing his hearing and gave them to me. So, no worries about the price Mine are a LOT more beat up than yours, except of course behind that tank of a grill, where they look the same. Woofers are either A Alnico or is the model plate has an "A" stamped into it, H. Both will need foam eventually. Mid is an LE5-XX, should not need any foam. Tweeter is the Crossover in mine is fine, did not need any work at all.
The one thing to keep in mind is that the label has the name Horizon on it for a reason. Horizontal positioning will result in a cleaner sound, due to the positioning of the mid and tweet. Playing them the way you have them in your pics results in a very uneven horizontal dispersion pattern, but a very even vertical pattern. I keep mine on their sides for just that reason.
