It is VERY difficult to find folks willing to work on "vintage" electronics,
primarily due to parts availability and the lack of techs. This is mostly due to a market drive to cheaply made, disposable electronics over the last 20 years. "Blame Mr. Cheapskate Consumer" who only wants to buy his electronics at the same place he buys his 5 gallon tub of Mayo for that one. Ok, I'll get off my soapbox for a couple minutes. Unfortunately we don't have the resources to do any outside repairs but....

Capable of most Vintage Speaker Repairs such as re-foaming / re-coning. Shipped in repairs possible, but contact them first. From their website; "Unlike many refoam-only services, we will repair whatever may be wrong with the driver. With older drivers we typically see problems in addition to rotted foam, including problems with the voice coil and speaker suspension. All problems are addressed in the reconditioning process. Also, there are many different types of foam. Not all foam surrounds will work well on every woofer. We have many different foam products available to match the original type used. Also, we can custom-cut foam for odd sized and shaped woofers.
We can repair the B&W 801 woofers, which are no longer supported by B&W, as well as most other high-end speakers and subwoofers.
We also repair the KEF 103 and 104 series speakers with the internal woofers.

PS. The above contacts are merely contacts we have amassed. You would need to contact them directly with your needs. They may or may not choose to take on your project based on many factors.

If you would like your repair facility listed and feel it would be a 'good fit' for the page, feel free to contact us.

One of the most important aspects to sending a unit off for repair  or restoration, is to POSITIVELY INSURE that it has been packed sufficiently & appropriately for safe transit. You must also inquire as to the ability of the business that repairs / restores the unit to do the same. This cannot be assumed. Even professional packaging companies may have 'new hires' that are not experienced in packing, 'high-mass / fragile' electronics for safe transit, so you must ask detailed questions as to the packing methods that will be utilized and ascertain that they will be sufficient.
 While transit damaged units are great for our parts business, almost all damage to shipments is due to inadequate packaging. They are not making most of these vintage units anymore, and it's a real shame when we loose another piece, un-necessarily to unprofessional packing. You know it's going to get 'rough handling', dropped, kicked, ran over, shot at, and probably involved in a F5 tornado somewhere along the way,
SO PACK IT THAT WAY!
