Depends on the definition I'd guess, the same way as with Fender or Ford
OP, how badly are the cones torn? AFAIK
there's no re-cone kits for those speakers, and being pretty cheap drivers to begin with, there would be no point either. IMHO anyway.
If the tears can be patched up, and the spider and dust cap are still tear free, You may be able to salvage them, but since the BL10 100 (different driver I know) costs about 20€, they'd better serve as nail-pickers when attached to a stick.
I have 810 in works with the aforementioned BL10 100 16 drivers, and while I don't expect miracles, at 16€/pop I can't go very wrong either.
