Coil Inductance
maybe!
wire length diameter comment
L1 0.15 mH 0.5 mm 8.6 mm 23 mm air coil
L2 0.47 mH 0.5 mm 8 mm 26 mm air coil
L3 3.3 mH 0.71 mm 32 mm 24 mm ferrit coil

Above list of inductors I found from a Russian page, there is a link at the end, but must be more then one version of Alpha 50 because the capacitors has different capacitance.

15 year old speakers could had the membrane rubber edge broken. These ones looks to be good. The ceramic domes are very sensitive and one tweeter has a dent.

Note:
I'm not sure to 100% that it's a 1 ohm resistor to the tweeter, read below.
