I have got my hands on Logitech Z-5500 5.1 THX Speakers. It has satellites speakers with completely damaged cones and need serious repairs.
They are rated for 3 inch, 69w RMS @ 8 Ohms as per on paper specification. I couldn't find any direct replacement on internet and whatever is there seems super cheap at very low RMS.
I want all drivers to get repaired while keeping everything else as stock and don't mind loosing THX signature sound.
If they are beyond repair then I would prefer buying two 8 ohm 100w rms speakers (Please advice) in good MDF box ditching all 5 satellites, I don't necessarily want 5.1 setup.
Can these be repaired without loosing 80% of their sound quality? Please advice and Where should I look for. I live in New Delhi.
Right now I am using 4" full range 12w RMS 8ohm speakers as alternative and they start getting distort above 40% volumes.
Aren't there any full range 3" drivers of 60w at 8 ohms?
I found it for super dirt cheap and can't ditch it as it has optical + coax digital inputs along with analogs. I would like to go with repairing these drivers if anything such exists.

Please refer images below.

so you want to build step-by-step? sensible. many ppl go that route. look up the forum (esp its classifieds section) mentioned by @whitestar_999. you might find a good deal on a used set-up too (if you're willing to take one). its helpful, and rarely any trust-issues in seconds-dealing. most times you'll find well-kept, well-maintained stuff.

Good to know, did you get some help from hifivision forum. :)
Indirectly Yes. I didn't got any replies on my questions on Z-5500 threads but there are many other things on the forum to learn for. Z-5500 is quite old now, not very much famous in 2020 so I guess people not knowing about it is common.

That forum is good for audio stuff, I remember a thread about someone fixing/comparing a 20 years old speaker(the one roadside shops in old times used to have) having better overall sound quality than recent speakers of that time when I saw the thread. :)

Denon X Series AVR-X1400H fits in your requirement but currently pricing is too high. Its old & I have see it going for 39000 INR on amazon around Feb 2020 just before Pandemic.
Try local dealers for some Open Box pieces available Or used piece as suggested by @GhorMaanas

In speakers Dali Zensor 7 bookshelfs[pair] @ 37k or Dali Spektor series.

How keen you are?
I can share contact of guy who is going to source me Open box Denon X1400 or some other AVR once the pandemic settles.

Prime Day purchase. Impressions: tending towards regret. Driver quality sounds great, but Hard tips doesnt make any sense at all. Silicon/Foam tips isolates outside noise as well as provides great fit. OnePlus in its blind agenda of copying Apple made a big mistake in ergonomics.
