    Speaker Repairs

    Some time ago I asked here about repairing a pair of high quality speakers whose foam surrounds have rotted away. I have been hunting a solution ever since and finally found a repair guy in the US who has been so helpful that I would like to recommend him should anyone ever want to repair their speakers. The process is really very easy and expensive speakers can be revived at fractional cost.

    Here are the details:

        You can replace the coil quite easily. The main thing is to source the right one for the speaker you wish to repair. However, before going into all that trouble and expense you may want to see if replacing the entire driver might not be easier. These days beefy drivers are available at very low prices.

        Luck

          Nico, you did a very nice job on those ! It is not really a hard job to do, but kinda putzy and time intensive. It is much more economical to refoam than replace in a lot of instances, and you keep intact the original design of the whole cabinet.

            Thanks Larry. I trust that you can repair yours too. Only thing to make absolutely sure is to get the right size foam surrounds. There are some reliably suppliers in the US but I found mine in the Netherlands - shipping was a little cheaper.

            Luck!
