How to: revive a set of vintage Pioneer TS-32 speakers (part one)

I have been absent for a while now and I had many things to blame for that where one of them is that I actually was creating this video on how to revive a set of vintage Pioneer TS-32 speakers.
Reviving a set of vintage Pioneer TS-32
Since I no longer have access to Adobe Premiere I had to pick a new non-linear editor and relearn the whole thing. I tried several of them and picked Lightworks which does the job but works on your nerves every now and then as sometimes it is beyond grasp why it doesn’t work. My steep learning curve took me about 15 to 20 hours of editing for this small sub 8 minute clip but I think I finally got it acceptable.

Anyway, this video is the first part about reviving a set of vintage speakers that I bought for only 10 euros:

After buying them I toyed with the idea of scrapping them but I’m glad I did not. They are late 70s/early 80s speakers and their design matches the Toyota Carina TA60. In this first video I will cover the speakers, how I took them apart and cleaned them thoroughly. You may see me look odd during the cleaning but that was because while cleaning them the smell really became worse.

Sorry for the choppy sound during the speaker testing, but even the 20 or 30 seconds of the tune I used to test the speakers is claimed by some company and I have to pay for usage. I only found out after uploading the first version of the video therefore I whawha-ed the sound to bypass this.
