Lots of info on www about 9710... I have 4... they are the most transient driver you will ever find ... if you can tame the 2k hump without dislike g and tweeters it will be an esl57 in a cone... try searching around the TQTW for it... it seems to be one of the ideal simpler solutions ... excellent with SET valves like 2a3...

Ask Rudi / geco or Gmeastro if they can perhaps help fix .,. It's simple paper 1 ply toilet paper mashed with wood glue and water if the tear is not big

Pls note, it is vintage alnico 9710, far superior to later ferite version. Repair is easy as stated
perfect drivers for a TQWT as for instance QW4, not very linear but do they play music!
