These are my dad's speakers and he is looking to replace the woofers. Not sure what generation type E's he has but from the Snellacoustics.com site, all generations of type E use the same woofers.

Anyone out there know of a compatable and comparable driver to use as a replacement. He doesn't want to spend the $176/driver from Snell.

Are the foam surrounds dry rotted?

Contact Simply Speakers, and communicate with them.

Not sure if they are rotted. If so, is the foam edge a difficult thing to install?

I guess we could try this option and see if it fixes the sound problem he is having.

If the woofers have holes in the surrounds - then they need to be refoamed.
A lot of people buy the kit - and do it themselves.

How would I know if the woofers actually need to be replaced?
