Speaker Surround Re-Foam Repair Kit For Bose 301/JBL 116H
Speaker Surround Re-Foam Repair Kit For Bose 301/JBL 116H is rated 4.1818 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The First One is ToughThe kit arrived as advertised except that there was only one surround per speaker instead of two and only one dust cover per speaker instead of two (as seen in the demo video).The first speaker was a challenge even after reviewing the video (although the video was really helpful). The lesson on the first one was to remember to slide the cone up to the level of the frame so that the surround will lay flat on the lip of the cone. The second speaker was a snap, having spent the blood, sweat and tears on the first one.Really inportant to have a SHARP exacto knife (or utility knife). I found a $2.00 disposable "snap off" utility knife at the hardware store that provides a new blade edge as you slide the blade up and snap off the old one.Bottom line - I reassembled the speakers and hooked them up to find that I had "done good" - the speakers performed like new!It would have been helpfull to have an extra surround just in case you screw up when you do the first speaker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and inexpensive solutionMy 15 year old Bose 301s started distorting in one woofer. A quick inspection revealed the surround ripped on one woofer. A search for replacement woofers yielded no products that would be a really good match for the cabinet, and the cost of the woofers exceeded the asking price ($100-150/ pair) you typically see for these units used anyway. So I took a chance at giving this surround repair kit a shot. Having read the customer reviews I also bought the bigger matching dustcaps too. I have never repaired or reconed a speaker in my life, but by simply following the instructions and taking my time, I was able to successfully repair the blown woofer. I consider it "restored" because it restored the original appearance and performance of the unit 100%. It preserves resale value because its appearance, performance and functionality are 100% original; it is indistingushable from an original, unmolested unit. I hope I can rock these speakers at least another 15 years, because they sound great in hung in the corner of my concrete, highly acoustically reflective workshop, a setup I copied from the store display as closely as I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good kitInstructioms recommend alcohol to remove glue, good luck with that. Nail polish remover might be just a little bit better, dont cut the dust cap too close to the cone as well. Good kit , complete and easy to install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GreatThe speakers are once again jammin'. Took about 2 hrs of elbow grease to get the old gasket off. The instructions are in plain english, not engineer-ese. So rock on with your ole 70's speakers, they're still better than the new ones!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works as advertisedI used this to fix a pair of 301s I got at a yardsale. Took about 3 hours overall. 2+ for the first, about an hour for the second, most of which was waiting for the glue to dry before moving on to the next steps. As noted above a larger dust cap would have made for a better looking repair. Speakers sound good. Not sure if good as new since I never had them new. Go ahead and do it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works wellSurround fits perfectly and works very well. Dust cap for coil is too small and nowhere like the original. It could be improved

Speaker Surround Re-Foam Repair Kit For Bose 301/JBL 116H

I have Bose 301s dated 1975-1977 which need new surrounds.  Does  Part # 260-914 work for this model?

Asked by: Mike WW
Unfortunately we do not have any kind of cross reference available for specific model years. This kit will fit a cone that measures 6" to 6-1/8" in diameter, so if your woofer cone falls within these dimensions it will work fine.

What is the larger dust cap part # everyone is using instead of the kit provided ones? TIA.

Asked by: thesid
You will have to measure the diameter of the dust cap on the original woofer. The ones included are 2-1/8", we also have 2-1/2" and 3" available separately. They are part numbers 260-377 and 260-378, respectively.

Would these work on a pair of bose 151 outdoor speakers? I erase toy aquired a house with these on the porch and wondering if these surrounds would work with them. They are probably around the year of 1995 if that helps. Thanks!

Hi - I have THREE Teledyne Acoustic Reserach AR8s speakers that all need new foam surrounds.  Will this product do the job and can I buy three?  Thanks.  

Asked by: Smartee
This surround kit is designed for 8" woofers with a cone diameter of 6-1/8". If your woofers have a cone with this diameter, these will work perfectly fine.
