Speaker "restoration"
Have a few sets of speakers that have survived many seasons outside with 2 now gaining "scratches" in the speaker with normal volume. Obviously its something physical with the speaker/wire oxidizing... in general can that be cleaned up or is it just trash? Im not going to replace any/every speaker in each stereo/system.
In a drop top Chevy with the roof wide open, my partners looking at me to see if my eyes open cause I've been drankin and I've Been smokin'

I would be more incline to believe the speaker drivers have dry rotted being outside for so long. It can also occur indoors in a humid environment. And it's usually the surround part..

And if you do decide to replace the drivers, I would suggest getting drivers with similar specs as the originals because the replacement drivers need to consider things like the size of the box etc.

(I've built speakers back in the early 80's)
