My KEF speakers are approximately 25+ years old. When I purchased them, they cost me ca. $400-500.00. My nephew knocked the speaker from it's stand and now all I get is fuzz from the right speaker. I love my KEF speakers and want it repaired or replaced, however, I'm finding it difficult to locate the speakers. I am wondering if they are too dated? Any ideas?

Never "too dated"! Smile

I'm not an expert but I can't find the C35 on their web site.

Can you find them?

Depending on where you are, you should be able to find someone to fix the speaker. Replacement parts seem to be available for many KEF speakers.

Hello,

Sad news.... Crying or Very sad

Try to locate the problem (woofer/tweeter damaged, internal wiring, filter,...)

When you search for replacement material, I would advise to check Ebay regularly.
From time to time there are some auctions for the C-range components.

Succes!

Nice bookshelf loudspeaker, what a shame.
Is it KEF Part Number C35 SP3093?
With care, remove the main driver, check for detached magnet (unlikely).
The fault will be mechanical and if the speaker fell a considerable height onto a hard surface then the heaviest object within the cabinet is the most likely culprit. Have a peep inside, let me know as to how you get on.
