    The white foam surrounds look much nicer imo .
    Think this might all be a little too much for my basic skills though . Any Jbl fans on here ?

    That sounds like cobblers to me. It's not a difficult job.

    It is worth doing properly on these. They are quite valuable drivers, so I'd get the best surrounds available..

    Sounds like a claim originating from the marketing department to add mystique and prestige to the brand.

    I have to say, I'd not seen a JBL Aquarius with a tweeter before. The ones I've seen did not have them, the 'IV' is obviously a later version.

    Iíve never done foams before, having said that I was bricking it when I decided to replace the ferrofluid on my 104/2ís and it was so bloody easy , as were their surrounds .... hold on yes I have done them before DOH !
    I would always get the best quality materials but the foams all look the same

    Ignore the stories about taking out the whole cone or removing the centre dust cap to shim the coil, that just inceases the likelihood of damage. You should be able to do these without doing any of that.

    And the glue supplied is usually PVA and there's better stuff available.

    Cheers Grant .
    Reading up about them they do appear to have quite a following .
    These sound incredibly bright though ( low volume of course)

    Would you fancy helping me do it Geoff if I come to you with them ?
    Is that too cheeky
