Anyone ever swap a driver on their B&W 600 series?

Hi everyone :)

I have a pair of B&W DM605 S2 that I bought brand new 20+ years ago. Really like them, and have been happy with them over the years.

However, over the past decade +, my ears have gotten a lot better, as I compose music for a living and mix my own stuff. I still like them, but ...

They are VERY low-mid heavy. That of course, depends on what you consider ’low-mid’; here I am talking 500hz range.

With the understanding that the box (enclosure) weighs heavily on the sound (as does the room, of course), I am wondering if it might be worth it to swap a driver. It might not be worth it, but wanted to see if anyone has done this, and to what effect, if any.

Thoughts/experience will be appreciated. :)

Not know anything about your speakers or your system wouldn't an EQ be a better solution or placement or room treatment? Have you tried an EQ in your system? Do you have tone control?

I'm just saying there are a lot better solutions than ripping out a driver, AY?

Agree with Oldhvy. It would be much better to find some method of equalzation or repositioning. You can't just swap out drivers without throwing of the whole balance of the speaker, and if you did you would need a redesigned crossover.
Thanks both.

So, it's not 'ripping' out a driver'... it's just replacing one :)

No tone control, diff room placement not feasible (besides, that in all likelihood wouldn't help what I am looking to cure), and I do not have an EQ. Trying to not get one; trying to keep the signal as pure and clean as possible. I would buy new speakers before adding an EQ. Which to some is going to seem counter productive, I know, but...

Why would I need a redesigned crossover if i swap a woofer?

you wouldn't need to do anything to the crossover if you use an original replacement driver.
Well, obviously I am not looking to use an original replacement driver.

So, why would I need a redesigned crossover if i swap a driver?
Unless you found a driver can give you the intended frequency response curve without modify the speaker cabinet, DIYers usually apply a Notch Filter to correct frequency response instead of swap out drivers.
