J_B Posted July 11, 2012 Report Share Posted July 11, 2012 Hello!First post here, hopefully I'm on the right spot. :-)Yesterday I've picked up 2 AR93Q speakers from the street, saving them from a certain garbage-truck death. Apart from that the cloth needs some washing (I already pulled the first one off), I discovered that the foam surrounding of the bass / mid speakers are due for replacement. On one it's already fully gone and on the two others they're preparing for a single ride to the afterlife.On eBay I've found some kits that I can have sent over from the US for 25$ + shipping (+taxes) each. If the package gets screened by customs, I might need to pay a whole lot of extra duties on it, so it could run up to 100$ to re-do all 6 of them.I've read that letting a company service them could cost me 70$ per speaker. Apart from that, I can't find any kit or service locally in Montreal.I haven't tried hooking them up on an amp yet to see what the result is. I'll beep the speakers to check if the coils aren't touching (so short-ciruiting the amp).They don't need to play load; I'm living in an old apartment, so no soundproofing in walls and floor.Will it be worth the money and hassle to get the surround foam kits? Or does anyone have a cheaper local solution I can get in Montreal or surroundings? I'm not afraid to fix them up myself, as I'm a theatre technician and I've built complete PA speaker cabinets in the past.Thanks for the input!!
