Default Ohm Walsh 4 Should I Get?

Looking online and found a decent looking pair of Ohm Walsh 4 speakers for 350. Been wanting to start a vintage setup with some Mcintosh tube amps and preamps for vinyl.

Would this be a good speaker to get? Not much info out there on theses speakers or even comparisons.

They'll need to be refoamed or upgraded at their age. The good thing is the Ohm Corp. still supports them.
I had an upgraded pair a while back and they were decent speakers I thought.

I heard the new Ohm at the New York Audio Show.
I thought they sounded real good for the price they ask for them.

Long time Ohm Walsh fan here. Started with F’s and traded them in on 4’s which I enjoyed for over 10 years. I more recently refurbished another pair of F’s and use them everyday at our lake house.
