    Got two 8.5 inch drivers that need new foams. I don’t want to mess them up doing them myself. Has anyone done this or got advice on who to go to to get them repaired? Or give advice about DIY repairs. Thanks

I've come to the conclusion there are elements of them all that I like, but none of them had everything I look for so I guess its about compromise. I guess it comes down to what are you looking to do and what do you want to improve? Do you want the same kind of sound qualities but more of it or do you want something completely different. If you want something completely different I'd think about a high mass belt drive like a Ver
