Speaker Refoaming

Vintage Audio Exchange offers in-house Speaker Repair Services for most all brands and types of speakers (drivers). We can replace your deteriorated foam surrounds to original or better operating condition. No more shipping or driving out of town for repairs. If your speakers look like this, we can make your speakers sound like new again. Our work is done in-house and is guaranteed for one year from the date of restoration.

What is speaker Refoaming?

The removal and replacement of the surround ring that connects the edge of the cone of the speaker to the speaker frame. All speakers will be tested for continuity and ohm readings prior to any work being down. Any speakers that do not pass both tests will be returned to the customer prior to any work being performed. Charges include the removal of the old foam and re-adhering new foam. Charges do not include the cost of the new foam surrounds or removal of the speakers from the speaker cabinet. Removal of speakers from your cabinets is an additional fee and would be charged at an hourly rate to removal and re-installation.
