We offer a comprehensive speaker repair service here in our workshop in Fairfield. We can recone and recoil your speakers, whether they are guitar or bass speakers, Pro Audio or Hi-Fi speakers. From big to small, we can do it all. We can replace your foam surrounds on your Hi-Fi speakers, recoil your blown subs, recone your guitar speakers to original specifications, and repair or upgrade your crossovers.
We source only quality parts for our repairs so we can get your tone back to where it should be. Some jobs require genuine parts but others will only be repairable with aftermarket reproduction parts. We have built up a considerable knowledge of suitable reproduction parts for many types of speakers, in particular brands such as Celestion, Jensen, Oxford, CTS, JBL and EV.
Our expertise in speakers extends to specialist work such as:
- Reconing and recoiling speaker drivers.
- Refoaming speakers with disintegrated foam surrounds.
- Crossover repairs and upgrades.
- Tweeter and mid-range driver repairs. We can assess for repair or replacement drivers and can modify and upgrade if applicable.
- Refurbishing or building new cabinets, including Tolex covering.
- Replacing grill cloth and grill foam or building new grill frames.
- Repairing magnet assembly damage by de-magnetising and re-aligning.
When we don’t have specific parts on hand, Open Ear Audio can source a wide range of parts for speaker repairs or upgrades.
Open Ear Audio is an Authorised Service Agent for Electro-Voice (EV) and Dynacord, Audio-Technica, Martin Audio, Funktion-1 and Grover Notting.
We are experts at repairing speakers from the ground up by rebuilding with genuine parts or quality matching aftermarket parts. Usually this is as good as a new speaker when built to our precise standards and also much cheaper.
We can build speaker boxes for guitar amps, PA and Hi-Fi speakers, repair some cabinet damage or modify to improve your speaker enclosures. Some of this work can be quite expensive so please contact us to discuss the options.
Whatever you want to call it, we can replace foam roll surrounds or rubber or even cloth accordian surrounds on your speakers. We have vast knowledge and experience of this basic yet precise repair work and guarantee to have your speakers operating as good as the day they were built.
