Answer to serafin:
you don't need to replace the tweeters. If you clean them (remove the old ferrofluid gunk from the voice coil and magnet part) and add new ferroluid, they will be as good as new. Get the right amount of high quality ferrofluid for 1" tweeter (100µL) for each tweeter.

Bottom Line:   
Bought these speakers some months ago, and shifted the tweeters. They are very good looking and well build; real Ash tree. I use bi-wire, and they simply sound amazing; very rich sound, with lots of clarity and detail. The bass is so deep and well balanced, when watching a film it feels like being in a cinema. As well voices sound great; lots of depth and body. If you can find a pair, I highly recommend them. I have listened to many speakers, and these are absolutely the best I have heard. Of course I think they as well would be quite expensive if i had to buy them from new today in my country; Denmark.

Since I bought the very little-used pair P5 from my brother who owns Thiel, I must say I've been very impresses with the clear, crisp, floating mid-range and highs. When listening to female voices, be it sopranos or those in an 8-voice,20-voice masses, they really stand out from the background bass. I suppose the dynamic gains are much higher,across the spectrum, in B&W than in other speakers. I tested much more expensive speakers like ProAc, Usher, TAD, etc. driven by big amplifiers(to give solid sound,but lacking the 'float characteristics of B&W), and P5 wins hands down.
The bass is quite adequate, one can feel the power everytime the drum hits.
