Bottom Line:   
You are wrong, the early models had foam surrounds on the woofers, the later models had cloth. The same with the with the mounting, early models were stamped metal later, the ones were aluminum. I know because I have two sets of the early ones, one set of hpm 60s and one set of hpm 40s. Bought new in 1976. Still sound great after I had the foam surrounds replaced by Dixie speaker repair in Trussville Alabama. These are great sounding speakers.

Bottom Line:   
Newly aquired HPM-60 speakers....found at the thrift store.Won't say how cheap..(cheap)..All drivers intact and test out well.
These babies are BRIGHT!....But still I like them.Maybe I'm getting old and loosing the high end??
Thumping bass,crispy super highs...symbals and hard hat drum sound great! Pretty efficient.
I have a feeling that this LA sound(like JBL) might get tedious after extended periods.I will play with an EQ later.Drums sound super,very detailed...That super tweet adds sizzle!
A little like Klipsch KG4 speakers on speed.
They are heavily,well built,quality speakers for sure...But will you like the sound?
Thats for you to say.They would make great Rock and Roll speakers,but my digital Benny Goodman CD sounded pretty good also..More listening to come.
Seems to be a bargain if you can find them,parts seem available on eBay...But from what I have read,if you respect the drivers,they will last a long time...These have.
