Guest ed Posted July 12, 2006 Report Share Posted July 12, 2006 Hi, I am new to this forum. I have not had a good music system for many years, not that I ever had anything great. I have managed to hang onto a Marantz 2215 reciever but have not had speakers and I recently found a pair of Advent Loudspeakers and a pair of Advent/1 speakers at a thrift store on two different visits. ($18 and $10). Anything anyone can tell me about these is appreciated. Both have orange tweeters and need new foam for the woofers. Well one of the advent Loudspeakers woofers foam is actually ok, no tears or rips and the other one is half disinigrated. I have read through some of the posts here about refoaming and googled for the foam and I find a wide range of prices. Will someone recommend an inexpensive source for the foam please? What size woofers are these? 10”? I am not sure where to measure. I found someone on ebay selling the refoam kit who claims that his are closer to the original size concerning the roll. Here is a link.http://cgi.ebay.com/Advent-10-Metal-Frame-...1QQcmdZViewItem Has anyone here dealt with this seller? Also, on closer inspection of the Advent/1’s I see an adhesive residue. I imagine that someone tried to repair the foam by applying the adhesive onto the edge. The foam is now almost completely gone but the adhesive remains on the two edges where the foam would touch, the metal and the woofer. It is thick, rubbery, and clear, almost like a silicone caulk. Any suggestions about what to do about this adhesive will be appreciated. Should I leave it? I tried removing it and I think that I can peel it off if I am careful. I can take photos if it is helpful. Thanks Ed Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
