Vitavox and Goodmans Bass drivers Some advice on buying these please.
fiogf49gjkf0d
             Gday was thinking about buying these for a mid bass horn or may be a bass horn one day. There in terrible condition other then I think they have two real vitavox cones in them even though one has been replaced. Note the crack also. But they are in such bad shape I may be able to get them for $200. I am in Australia. I believe there is a guy that can remagnetize drivers though I am not sure he really can yet. He says he can. Are these removable cones? I am not even sure what sort of spider they have. If it was by some chance a Bakelite spider I would be especially interested as I have a set of grundig drivers with those that I love. I realize these are not the model that people are using for bass horns. If they where  I am sure I wouldn't be in the bidding. Maybe these will be valuable some day too. But in this condition I don't know. I could tig weld the frame maybe but I think it may flatten the magnets then forcing me to risk remagnetizing them. Has anyone here had experience with these old drivers? Do they lose there magnetism.
 
              I am also interested in a pair of Goodman's audion 80 15inch bass drivers that are in much better condition then these. In fact they have nos cones and are in perfect shape. But again the magnets and what remaining charge that they might contain is a issue to me.

BTW I am not if I can only put on image per post. Forgive me please If I put 3 posts needlessly.

Showing the magnet cover I think. I believe there was many types of these.

Showing the cone out and how clean they are. The thought of owning a speaker good enough to service like that is a nice feeling. So what do you think of both sets of drivers?  Worth having for bass horn duty's. I wonder what efficiency they might be. I believe both models where originally rated ~99db

Tubebuilder, I have suspended your account at this site, you won’t’ be able to post and hope I won’t hear from you again. That trashy “angeloitacare” mentality is streaming from each sewer hole.  Find other place to “shine” with your “curiosity”. If I hear your name again you won’t be able to read this site.
