Stepping back a bit, I assume you have done a continuity check on both the voice coils? As you mentioned one was 'dead'.
Refoaming will not fix an open circuit voice coil...

Yes I saw the fleabay relisting too. That lowers my repair budget. The seller has however responded that he refoamed them himself and pointed me to where he got the kit to do it. The company that responded to say they no longer do this work because it's totally uneconomical has told me this was because of the runaround they get from the manufacturers. I might therefore ask them if they would do the repair if I supplied the kit, i.e. make use of their expertise and save them the runaround.

And I will be pointing my mate to the fleabay listing..... :-)


Yes you are right - I still need to do a continuity check on one of the voice coils. The speakers have the old style spring-loaded terminals which have all but been wrecked by the stiff QED 79 strand cable so that could be the problem too.

Edit : Continuity checked out OK on both woofers measured at the speaker terminals.

Thanks All,
