Hoping someone on here can help! Just bought some Celestion Ditton 332s  for £20 but one of the midranges isnt working , swopped over and it is the speaker thats gone. I like the sound as my Dad has 33s so i'd like to fix if I can.

Unfortunately its not the same as the 33s midrange and I cant find any mention on the web .The number on the speaker is EN20. Does anyone know if there are replacements available anywhere ?

Maybe i should have waited for some fully working 33s to pop up in my area ;-(

Thanks,

Phil

RE: Hi-Fi

Did a quick search on the interweb to no avail for you. Will a same size driver not work?

Bumping for the OP. Cool

RE: Hi-Fi

I have found that I can get replacements from SEAS for both tweater and mid-range . But I have contacted DK loudspeakers in Hornchurch and am dropping them off tomorrow so he can take a look. They re-coned my Dads Celestion Ditton 33s a while back and tweaked the crossover and they are superb .
