I just bought a pair of Model 6's, and the high frequency drivers are not working. This pair is original, with the grille cloth wrapped around the sound board. I have read that possibly the capacitors could be bad, not necessarily the tweeters themselves. Any help with acces to the inside of the box?

Do a search here for "KLH Model Six" (all in quotes). There's lots of info. The six came in 2 flavors: One had the drivers epoxied to the baffle board, and the only way to get inside is to cut a hole in the back. Later Sixes had normal screwed in drivers, so they are much easier to work on.
