    Default Celestion HF 1300 expert needed

    After more than a year trying to sell them for about 20 I am now stripping a pair of vintage Radford speakers and selling the parts off separately.

    At present I am a bit stuck removing the HF1300. Its seems to be glued in place and I don't want to break anything.

    I attach pictures of the front and back and I cant at present even work out if it comes out forwards or backwards. I have removed the screws from the rear bracket, but am loathe to touch the 3 screws on the front. It all seems very solidly in place at present.

    PS Seems to be stopping me upload pictures at present - will try again later

    Definitely need photos.

    If they are from Radfords, they may be the 16 ohm metal bodied version and more desirable than the plastic ones.

    They do seem to have metal bodies and the front looks different to all the images on Google ?

    Still cant upload pictures There is just the little rotation wheel and ? and the 'add files' button is inactive

    I'm doing nothing at the moment, I can PM you with my email address, you send me the pics, and I can put them up.

    They do look like HF1300, but the front grilles seem different to the usual. They are mounted in a similar way to that used on the BBC LS3/6 and early Rogers Export monitors, just that bracket on the back. Just remove the screw in the back of the magnet and the unit should slide out. Avoid straining the connection wires though.

    Thanks again Alex .

    The 'glue' holding the tweeters tight seems to be some sort of vintage putty that is now pretty solid but can be broken away gently at its edges. Probably a Radford trade secret
