    I am looking at a 1990s 1960 cabinet with origional speakers. Should I look for newer ones so the speakers would be in better shape or does age really matter?

    'Good' is a broad term. They are probably UK made Celestions, G12T75s or V30s of fairly recent revisions. Probably well broken in so no time gone to waste there. There's always a chance one of the speaker can be blown or near death, but could be worth a chance.

    I guess what I am really asking is do speakers have a life expectancy and are newer ones better and worth more?
