    torn surround

    i just recieved my "mint" condition focal utopia 136 w. to my surprise both of the midrange speakers have the surround torn on them. not like its seperating from the cone, its actually torn right after its glued to the cone. one is really bad, torn probably more than half way around. just wondering if there is any way to repair this? ive read a lot about people using rubber cement and other things on their subs, but this is a set of FOCAL UTOPIAS, just wanna know if anyone has ever encountered this?

    If you decide to keep them, call these guys. They do mostly repair and have been around car audio as well as home for over 25 years. Good Luck

    Re: torn surround

    I would just ship them back, get a refund and look for something different.

    Repairing a surround on a subwoofer isn't that bad. Repairing a surround on a mid can have an effect on the midrange performance.
