Parts Express Speaker Surround Re-Foam Repair Kit For 8" Speaker
Parts Express Speaker Surround Re-Foam Repair Kit For 8" Speaker is rated 4.6806 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't be afraid!I have worked in consumer and commercial electronics for over 50 years and seen and done a lot of things. Refoaming speakers was not one of them but when my go-to driver mechanic decided to retire, he convinced me that it wasn't that hard. Guess I was giving him more credit than he deserved! My first time foaming for was really painless. I was careful, followed the directions and the next morning the dust caps went on and those tired 70s ARs were sealed and making good noise again. So, don't be afraid - the old speaker mechanic was right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PerfectFirst time user. Started late last night. Glued up the cone and surrounds, let them sit overnight. Assembled after lunch, then plugged in this afternoon. Speakers sound great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit!Worked great on an EPI 110. There was a lot of old glue on the basket that no solvent that I have in the shop would take off. It didn't seem to matter though, because the supplied glue worked just fine. Remember to follow the directions and let the glue dry some before putting the foam on. It won't adhere if it's wet, no matter how many times you press it together. Don't ask how I know that. :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect FitI have a pair of Nestorovic Type 4 speakers. I've had these speakers for about 30 years, they have always sounded great. The surrounds were rotten and I figured I give it a shot and replace them myself. Much easier than I had imagined and they sound great, once again.
