    Default Rogers BBC Studio Monitors with Chartwell Swisstone 8 Ohm driver

    Hi,

    Here are some photos of my BBC Studio Monitors with Chartwell Swisstone 8 Ohm drivers any info?

    Also one tweeter is not working any good repair centres in SW London area, or wider area if not?

    Regards

    Do they use the Celestion HF1300? Might be cheaper just to buy one and fit it yourself. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/32425984189...c39991585615fb

    The middle one looks like an HF1300 and the upper is likely to be a Coles unit, although it may be an HF2000. A front view would help.

    It is unlikely that a repairer would take on these drive units as genuine new parts are no longer made. Used replacements can be found on ebay, but the HF2000 is getting pricey. You also have to make sure you get the correct version.

    That's a heck of a transformer on what is presumably the bass section. Nobody uses stuff like that anymore.

    But really, Jason, as people are saying we can't help you without a front view of the drivers. But definately fixable. I know Chartwell, Dalesford, Celestion, Coles and all those other drivers.

    Help others to help you.

    I want to know the model, and what's under that paint or Snowpake.

    It's an autotransformer to allow sensitivity adjustment.

    Most likely the serial number.

    Think it will be a Celestion HF2000. https://www.markhennessy.co.uk/rogers/others.htm

    I came very close to buying a pair of the Rogers BBC Studio Monitors, but held out for a pair of Quad ESLs.

    If it's a blown Celestion HF1300, make sure you get a 16 Ohm version.

    I presume that the Chartwell bass units are replacements for the originals, probably a good choice.

    Should be nice speakers when sorted.

    I have a similar pair.
