    What to do? new speakers or repairable

    I have had these speakers for a lil over 2 years and I noticed yesterday that there are messed up: (OH YEAH please excuse the messy desk lol)





    What do you guys think. Is there anything I can do to fix them or do I have to buy whole new speakers. And does this have any effect on the proformance of the speakers.

    Re-do the surround, if you really want to keep the speakers.

    If they're pretty cheap, we could probably find replacements for you on PE.

    the surround rubber is pretty cheap...and fairly easy to replace...you just need a steady hand and some glue...and good glue not those cheap paper paste



    Bought from: IS_250, nismos14, chaunb3400, tweet02, dadon, IonSQL, lslugz, dye4metal, RetroAudioinc

    That looks bad man. Sorry to see that. Did they sound good before the rats got at them? You could try putting new surround on them, but are they worth it now?

    Re: What to do? new speakers or repairable

    yeah they were really nice clean sounding speakers till my brothers rats got to them. I dont no if its worth fixing or just getting new ones. If you guys thought those looked bad take a look at thses:









    Sorry bout that last one i took it side ways. those are pics of both speakers that are COMPLETELY DESTROYED. They have been like that for a while I just have them sitting there. Thought about buying some 8' car audio subs to put in there place LOL if thats possable because that dont look fixable at all and probably better off buying new ones.

    They look like they've been in a fire

    I would just replace those speakers.

    I like the ribbon tweets, by the way

    Why is it that old, broken speakers always have their dust cap pushed in?

    I hate that!!

    Re: What to do? new speakers or repairable

    screw that. i can't imagine that the surrounds were "eaten". they look dryrotten to me. pm me, and i'll give u a design that'll make u wish you'd never even heard those mainstream towers. either that, or i'll show u some drivers that'd work for the towers and you'd probably wanna upgrade and update ur filters.
