    Default Speaker refoam

    Iím looking to refoam my vintage AR 8 BX speakers. The cheapest kit I can see on eBay is around £27 delivered from America. Are there any cheaper alternatives? The drivers are 6.5 inches.
    Thanks

    Dave

    Are sure It's a 6.5" woofer? I thought the AR8BX was 8" - Speaker-repairs.co.uk look a bit cheaper - LINK for 8" foams

    I just measured again and they are 6.5. They are definitely in need of renewing ;-)

    What makes you think they need refoaming?

    Do you think they are beyond repair? I got them for the kitchen but didnít check under the grills.

    No. They can be sorted.

    The cone shown is OK. What looks like a split is a loose piece of foam surround hanging down, had me wondering at first.
