I mentioned this in another thread, but figured I'd start another just so I'm no t hi-jacking another topic. My B300B woofers are starting to come apart. The surrounds are shrinking and starting to peel back from the edges of the frame of the speakers. The previous owner tried to glue them, but the glue is not holding. These are going to need repair soon, I think. Am I SOL or what? Are there surround kits that can be purchased for the B300B?

Probably not, but as the exact cross section of the surround isn't really an issue, you or your repairer should be able to get something close to the original compliance, which is.

B&W, Dalesford (RAM, WARS), and Mission(?) used similarly profiled surrounds and I haven't heard any noises from any interested parties.

You'll just have to ask a speaker rebuilder/recoiler, is there a problem?
