Over the week, I was able to get my mom to part with my grandfather's speakers he built (he assembled the cabinets with the speakers) in the early 60s. After a little searching and reading, it seems the Electro-Voice SP12B is a well thought of speaker for its time. I don't intend to alter the original build too much, but I would like to improve the sound.
Since I don't know much when it comes to speakers, any input is welcome. It looks like the cabinet has room to grow in the top (horn?) and in the middle/side (tweeters?). I just don't know if that would be good or necessary in my current environment. These speakers will be used in a small living room (11.5x13) with wooden floors, a high ceiling, and powered via Marantz 2275. So far, the only mod I have in store is a Vibrapod (http://www.vibrapod.com/) of sorts for the base.
