Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced the foam on my 1982 Avid speakers.Everything went according to plan. The video instructions were great. The pair took a total of 40 minutes to complete. It is so nice to have real full sound again. For years I have been using the all in one book shelf systems and the Bose cd player. They have no soul. I resurrected my College system. It is like I found my soul again. Best $ I've spent in years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and simpleMy first time refoaming speakers.Went off without a hitch.Except for not knowing about the ferro fluid inside, everything went according to the instructions.I should have changed the ferro fluid. Thick and sticky.Find out if your old speakers have ferro fluid first!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All Purpose Refoam.First and foremost, the surround glue is definitely not Elmer's school glue. The two smell alike, but the dried surround glue has different tactile and strength properties. And even if it was Elmers cow glue, it's still an acceptable adhesive for speaker repair. Some hobbies have way to many ideologues.Everything else works as described; the shims are a nice touch. Both types of foam surround seem durable and I am sure they will do fine for my speakers. I do wonder though if the all purpose dust caps change the specs of the speaker being repaired. They are relatively large for an 8" driver, and I can't help but think they change cone mass or the volume of air pushed, especially if they sit higher on the cone than factory dust caps. Can anyone chime in?Ideally, you'd shim AND save your stock dust caps, but that's in a perfect world. I had to use replacement caps from this kit, which is not the end of the world considering their clean black finish and durable construction.

I have a pair of Jamo CL 25s with rotted foam surrounds. Does anyone know if this kit would be suitable? How does one measure the woofer diameter.?

Asked by: peterb0202
You want to measure the diameter of the cone itself edge to edge. This kit fits a woofer with a cone diameter of 5-3/4" to 6".
