Need replacement 8" woofer for Snell Type E

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
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?
