Oh -- now I see in the grill-off photo -- those aren't really Z-700's, since someone replaced the electrostatic elements with ordinary cone tweeters whose urethane foam surrounds long ago rotted. Sorry to say, they were fully converted into art pieces, and there's no reason to bother trying to use them as speakers.
Keep an eye out on ebay for a pair of the electrostatic panels. Be patient a pair will pop up eventually. At least that is what I would do. Well worth it.
High sensitivity, wide dynamic range, low distortion, and smooth frequency response. Pwk
While those small cone drivers are complete guano, could something be cobbled together with dome and/or horn drivers that will function reasonably well? What sort of sensitivity is needed in the device(s) mated to the woofer?
Obviously, woodworking (to get a mirror imaged pair) and crossover engineering are going to be required. I haven't the foggiest notion about cost justifying such an effort. The quality of the cabinet and woofer have much to say about that subject.
I was starting to get excited about efforts to restore.
