I've heard something about that.The guy does good work tho some of his methods are unconventIonal. I also would take some of those complaints with a grain of salt.I know the guy had some health issues & a couple of the complaints were bogusI was mainly using his video for the OP to get an idea of the work involved to get any performance from these heads & even then, only marginal gains.Really wasn't recommending him to send the heads out to him.No way I would go thru that much work on those heads.Let alone pay someone else to do it.

Alright, I'll tell you what I'm going to do. I'm going to try them, and if I don't like them I will sell them on craigslist for $350 (after cleaning them up of course) and the other un-rebuilt set of 193's for $100. Will people buy?

If someone just looking for a replacement head.Like Boogie, or, someone mentioned before, Iwould try swapping them out at a head shop maybe for something more suited for what you need.
