    I agree with you, the Heritage cabinet sounds amazing. It is the best 810 I have ever played through.

    I have never seen the Heritage speakers for sale by speaker companies.

    You could contact Loud (parts@loudtechinc.com) and ask if they will sell you a set of speakers. It might be more cost effective to buy a Heritage 810 cabinet though.

    The Eminence B810 speaker is considered close but they are not the same.

    It is a custom design. Loud buys enough of them that they can specify what they want and it is available exclusively to them. Here is what they look like.

    Old straight back 810 (1969) used CTS. Your 2001 810E did not have CTS but a different Eminence speaker.

    I think that it is a very good idea. A flat back cabinet with those speakers would be very nice.

    The link above shows the Heritage speakers part numbers, you can order them from Loud. The problem is that buying the speakers will cost you almost as much as buying a new Heritage cabinet. A good alternative is the Eminence B810 speaker.

    One problem that you can run into is buzzing. The power capacity (wattage) of these speakers is higher than that of the CTS speakers. The cabinet will go from a rating of 240W to 800W. Some of these old cabinets are not as structurally strong as they were originally because of their age. If the joints are loose, the cabinet will need some woodwork to strengthen them. If your cabinet is in good condition you not have any problems.

    Here is the Heritage speaker info: the Loud part number is 86-032-01-9, it is 10", 32 ohm, 100W; 67-0122C is the Eminence part number. Eminence will not sell the speaker directly to anyone but Loud.

    It might cost less to buy a Heritage 810E cabinet locally than it will to order them and ship the speakers to your location.
