Snowy the biggest advantage is not having to re-design the X-O and tune the box of a nice old pair of speakers if you don't have to... (This is mostly necessary as the newer drivers from same manufacturer is likely not the same as the old ones...)
OK! I've had it! I don't give anymore Kharma. Kharma should work in mysterious ways...

Yes, as Andre says, but also:
I burned the voice coil of a brand new McKency 15" once. Cost R900 a unit then. To recoil cost R250 and it sounded exactly the same. - Well worth repairing.

I've got two blown Seas alm dome tweeters at home, will cost R280 each to recoil. - Not worth repairing.
