Q- How long will it take to fix my speakers?
A- Turn around time is 1-2 weeks usually. There are some instances where it may take longer if parts are not in stock or back ordered.
Q- Will my speakers sound the same again?
A- Yes, if there is a speaker that can not be fixed to sound proper again we will not fix it. But most speakers are not a problem.
Q- Replace speaker or recone?
A- Most of the time reconing is the answer, if done right it will be good as new. Sometimes reconing is the only option especially with vintage speakers. Plus the speakers that are in your cabinet were designed to be in that speaker and work with the crossover inside. So if you replace, it will change the sound.
Q- I blew a tweeter and they no longer make a replacement diaphragm or direct replacement?
A- This is when you try to find a used one or find the best suitable replacement tweeter which we can help you find.
Q- Are my speakers worth repairing?
A-Most speakers can be repaired for a fraction of the cost of new speakers.
Q- If my speaker has foam surrounds can I use rubber surrounds?
A- Our recommendation is to use what was originally on there or what’s closest available.
Q- I have a speaker with a blown voice coil but the cone is ok, Can you save the cone and just replace the voice coil?
A- Yes as long as the cone is in good shape it can be saved and the damaged parts can be replaced.
Q- I would like to upgrade my crossovers with new capacitors. Will this make them sound better?
A- Yes, if the speakers are over 20 years old and they have not been recapped, We would recommend having them replaced/upgraded. Most speakers sound better after recapping.
Q- Should I replace or recone my guitar speaker?
A- If you have a vintage amp with an original speaker it is usually worth reconing. Especially if you like the way the amp sounds. If you change the speaker it will change the sound for better or worse.
Q- Smooth cone or ribbed cone guitar speakers?
A- That is a matter of personal taste so there is no right or wrong answer. Some speakers will sound good in one amp in not in the other its all about the complete set up, amp/speakers/guitar. That being said. Smooth cones will break up easier than ribbed cones which may be an effect you desire. The only way to know is to try both yourself and see which one you like better.
