    I can never understand why DM2's and DM2a's go so cheap. They must be the most underrated true classic British speakers.

    Even the far less able DM4 fetches near twice as much these days.

    Yes, I think it's just the faceplate of the tweeters left.

    Agreed, I had four pairs of DM2 / DM2a at one time.

    They are pretty good as is, but I reckon replacing the DM2 bass unit with a Dalesford would make them even better.

    I think the main problem with the DM2 is the weight, hernia inducing!

    Good grief!

    I think you may be right.

    Rare vintage 15 ohm long throw SEAS 8" bass/mid drivers with Alnico magnets. Lovely units!

    I have some Sony old speakers that use similar looking but 6 1/2" units in, along with a small Peerless cone tweeter, they sound pretty good.
