On my E II’s and Type C’s, you removed the woofer.  Unhooked all speaker wires.  Ma,e sure to mark the wires so you can attach them back correctly.  Slide the stuffing out of the way.  There should be 4screws attaching the crossover to the back of the speakers.  Once removed, a slight tap or nudge should break them free.  Then carefully pull them out.  Holt Hill Audio in MA can rebuild, but he is not a purist, and he would update everything.  He did my C’s and they are very nice.  Gordon Waters at The Audio Company in Marietta, GA is a purist and would rebuild exactly as Snell designed.  He did my E II’s and they are amazing now.  Good luck!

Thank you for the reply.  I pulled out the tweeter and it appears to be dead (I put a signal on it) even though it measures 4.5 ohms.  I will get a replacement.  Would you know if the crossover unscrews and can be pulled  out from behind the woofer or do you have to work on it in the box?

If the tweeter is registering as good, then you most likely have a problem with the crossover.  Still could be a disconnected wire somewhere.  The crossover is at the back of the speaker behind the woofer.  Crossovers can be rebuilt, but many on here are against it.  I have done my E II’s and Type C’s with very good results.  Depending on where you live, there are a couple of guys that do this work well.  One is a purist on Snell crossovers.  He re does them exactly as they were designed, including the bundling of the caps.  The other guy is a bit more extravagant, but he has an Audio Company and his speakers are well regarded, along with his crossovers.  If your speakers are in good shape, they are worth the restore in my opinion.

I purchased a pair of Snell Type C ll off of Craigslist.  One of the tweeters has no output.  I measured the tweeter and it measures 4.5 ohms.  Would anyone know if they are ferrofluid tweeters?  Also, could the crossover be an issue in having no tweeter output?  The wires are soldered to the tweeter so they cannot be easily disassembled. Another question, where is the crossover located and how difficult is it to pull it out and get to it.  Any information would be appreciated on these speakers.

Best Regards,

I got here a year late, but if anyone else is wondering, the pot is for the front tweeter.  The Toggle switch is to turn the rear tweeter on and off.  Normally, one will hear nothing from the rear tweeter when sitting in the sweet spot.  The rear firing tweeter is to "flesh out" the higher frequencies when you get up and move about the room.  So, there is no need to remove the rear tweeter if you do not like it, just flip the switch.

Good Evening,

I have a pair of Type Cs to sell due to a house renovation.

I bought these years ago at an estate sale and did quite a bit of work to get them going again.  I bought all new speakers (4 per speaker) from HI-REZ in MA a few years back.  I also re-capped them per HI-REZ's instructions.  The speakers have maybe 6-8 hours on them, as we couldn't decide on how to set up the living room.  The cabinets were beat up when I bought them and I did not get around to re-veneering them.  I have the screens, but they are dirty and probably should be re-worked.

I also have the original speakers that came out of them and sealing putty (I did not install it because I planned to refinish the cabinets).  I am also including a pair of Kimber Kables 14 ft 8PRs.

My price is $1500 for all of it.  Local pick-up only.  I live in Atlanta, GA.  I'll also be posting locally.

Thanks for looking!

You are correct.  The real woofers were mass loaded.  In later models, Peter tuned the woofers by building the crossover with an overstrong choke (coil) on the woofer.  A tech would then remove excess windings from the coil to tune the production woofer to match the original master.
