Speaker refinishing services

Hi, I purchased an Energy Veritas V-5.2-C center in Rosenut finish. Unfortunately the seller left the magnetic grill attached when they shipped it and it damaged the finish. Can anyone recommend a company who would be able to refinish or repair the face?

I would start by contacting Energy about reconditioning or who they might recommend. Good Luck

Have you tried to contact a local cabinet or furniture refinisher or restorer? You might need to remove the drivers for them, but it is a pretty straightforward job.

Thanks, I will send them an email and see who they can put me intouch with.

I haven't, I will do some googling and see who is in the area and what they can do. Thanks!

Seek a refund from the seller? it is his/her responsibility to ensure they arrive in the condition that you bought them..

I tried, unfortunately the transaction was done outside of Ebay and through PayPal's Friends and Family payment method.

I don’t think Energy exists any more as a company do they?

Unfortunately not, Klipsch took them and that was the end of that. Not much support for them available.

I don't think I quite understand how leaving the grilles on caused that damage?

The grill shifts during shipping and the magnets scratch the clear coat. Also it fell on the face with grill attached, magnets pushed into the clearcoat.

When I bought my Energy C7 towers, they were immaculately packed. Grills were packed and wrapped separately from the speakers.
