IvanB Posted March 30, 2020 Report Share Posted March 30, 2020 I have a pair of Sansui SP-1500 speakers, they have the 12" woofers with an inverted surround. The surrounds have become stiff over the last 40+ years,. ( as have i ) I am not sure if they are cloth or foam because they are brittle, as in hard but not fragile though. I saw somewhere on the intetubes that it is a common malady. They are not giving the best bass they are capable of, the woofer just can not travel as freely as it should be able to. I am going to order new capacitors and i would like to get new surrounds, they are not torn or separated so maybe there is an alternative to new ? They actually sound decent considering, one is a little better than the other. Any input as to what kind of surrounds i need to order or remedies i can use to address the stiffness would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
