  1. Thanks Sebastian. Have already taken the speaker to a person recommended from a stereonet member . Atilla Tanka. He did a great job of replacing the surround. Unfortunately there was another issue {amplifier board needed a reflow). Jim from Filatronics in Pascoe Vale did the honours there (fixing) once again at a reasonable cost. So for under $200... all fixed now and back in it's home doing the job it's supposed to do.
  2. The Photo in my sig is a Lambert speaker which I currently own. ( purchased new in 1985 ). Yes Peter Boland is the NZ repair man to go to. Repaired my tweeters in the 90's when I lived in NZ. Think he still does repairs but he does't hurry himself along...slow and methodical and does / did a good job. My speakers are the Lambert SP 250's.. still very happy with the sound they produce and yes they are solid beasts. More info here Grant
  3. Have these been considered at all? https://www.harveynorman.com.au/yamaha-in-ceiling-speakers.html?CAWELAID=720013240000116870&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIndaZ6eu-6QIViw4rCh1oaAtsEAQYASABEgLm5PD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds Didn't think they were too bad price wise and sounding.
  4. Hi Cazzesman Noticed the SVS and a cple of others here. Thought all about what you said and I agree with a lot of it hence the dilemma. In the end I've decided to fix it. Trying to keep things in perspective. The sub has served me well for 20 odd years and for a simple surround fix ( under $100 ). Cone and coil are fine. I'm hoping it will do me another 20 odd years. Have been happy with the bass it has provided...clean and controlled. The cabinet is immaculate with no scratches and the grill is unmarked with all tabs intact. The repairer also commented that the coil/magnet made 20 years ago is a superior product compared to the made in present day. I could spend between 1 to 2 thousand for a nice new / 2nd hand sub. Would I notice THAT much difference or would I need to spend more. (The T9 was tempting or 2 T5's}. In the end, I'm happy with my existing Bass and for the cost of repair.... will keep it simple. Too many choices nowadays. Thank you for your thoughts.
  5. VanArn Am leaning towards the repair because it will still be a REL after, not a hybrid if I go the replacement method. Re Aus Post...received a car headlight posted last week. The satchel was shredded in one corner and the factory ctn (hella) had a hole in the bottom extending halfway across the box. The light was hanging out the bottom when I picked it up. The driving isn't too bad. 1 hour each way 4 times. Drop off / go home/ collect repaired item / go home. Traffic is lighter at the moment as well. Is repairing a Sub essential travel..... Thank you once again for your reply.
  6. Have contacted REL UK who have suggested these https://www.wagneronline.com.au/peerless-12-woofer-sls-paper/prod-id-usersearch1/830669-7158/3252/pd/ as a replacement. Given that my sub is 23 years old, would this be a good way of modernizing it. Do I repair the original {4 hrs travel time} and still have a REL sub or for a similar price, replace with a modern driver. Then it won't be a REL sub anymore. Has anyone had experience with Peerless by Tymphany deivers. Would I really notice any BIG difference between the two options. TIA for advice.
  7. Thank you VanArn Will call them tomorrow if they're open.
  8. My 23 year old sub has just given up the cone (see pics). Cabinet is still in ex condition, lugs all intact on front grill. Is it worth fixing/ replacing driver/cone (if possible). Is the tech inside considered old and outdated compared to new. Do I just buy new REL T5's (2) or one T9 or even look at the JL range. Does anyone know where REL's can be repaired in Melbourne South East. Suggestions welcome please...hate watching bass less movies. Specs for info Type: single driver subwoofer Frequency Response: 20Hz to 120Hz Sub Bass: 1 x 300mm long throw Enclosure: 50 litre, closed box Dimensions: 400 x 415 x 400mm Weight: 19kg Note: 100W RMS amplifier
  9. Didn't think Pioneer brought out a 55". just 42" 43" 50" & 60" Correct me if I'm wrong tho. Have a 50" still going strong but may have to replace it with a 65" Pana GZ1000 before it's too late. Eyeing one up for $2700.
  10. Also have this projector. Stunning picture for a great price. Bargain with all the extras.
