175mm speakers to repair old Monitor Audio 14
First time poster so Hello All!
I bought some hi-fi equipment off of a friend of mine for three hundred pound which consisted of a Sony DVD player, a Sony STR-DB940 receiver, Paradigm centre, rears and active sub and a set of Monitor Audio 14 front speakers.
Currently the centre and rears are unconnected as I'm struggling for room at the moment but I'm soon to move out of a shared house and into a place of mine with a living room in which to set this lot up. Regardless, the fact is that one of the woofers on one of the MA14's has been torn. The friend who sold me the speakers also included a Monacor SPH-175 woofer which he said would fit as a replacement.
Long story short he's a liar and I need a 175mm woofer to fit (the SPH-175 is 177mm, despite its name). I can't find anything suitable anywhere and even Google has no answers. I'd like to buy two so I can replace one of the woofers in the unbroken speaker to keep balance but is that going to be economical over just buying a new set of speakers? It does seem kinda wasteful just to throw them out.
I haven't approached Monitor Audio directly though I have read in other forums that MA stopped doing replacements for this unit a fair while ago.
Many thanks for any advices
