Here are a couple of cheapy's at PE that are 4 ohm , But isn't Goldwood the cheap speaker you get at rent a center's ?? The rated rms wattage is good and the freq range is pretty close to the infinity's but not sure about the construction

If you already have the caps off, just go ahead and shim it. It is the easiest way to do it.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Leonard, is there a supplier you'd recommend for re-surrounds?

For the surrounds themselves or for the service to replace them?

Re: Went used speaker hunting today at the pawn shops

The surrounds are tough, unless you want to pay $20+ for the kits. I have gotten them from MAT and from a handfull of others that have them intermittently, but currently have no good suppliers for you other than recommending the folks who repair them. Some will sell them separately as parts, some will not. The main supplier that most use only sells to speaker repair shops and will not sell retail.

Look in the thread here for speaker repair shops:

Re: Went used speaker hunting today at the pawn shops

How many surrounds have you done. I would just remove it and get it right. I have done close to 100. The shims allow for easy work. I can offer some advise if you like. PM me for cell if you need help.

Thanks Robert I may have to do this .. This will be my first .. And if I mess it up I can probably find some good 5.25's somewhere.. I was just wanting to use the orig. because that is what the enclosure was built for..
