Broken Dali Concept 6 Speaker

Recommended Posts

On the weekend one of my wonderful daughters knocked over a Concept 6 floor speaker onto a pile of Duplo and wrecked the cone so now I'm wondering about a few things for repair / replacement;

 

(we no longer have a working AVR so we can't drive these things meaning this is potentially a pointless exercise if this doesn't work but I'd consider repair / replacement as I picked up the set cheap and had been thinking of picking up two more surrounds).  So, I've been wondering;

 

- is it possible to replace the cone / diaphragm and not the whole driver etc assuming that the cone is the extent of damage?  any idea what that might cost?  Or would I be after a complete assembly?

 

- I haven't opened it yet to look but are the wires screw / bolted together or soldered?

 

- I noticed that the Concept 2 specs list a speaker driver the same size as the two in the Concept 6's.  Any idea if they are the same speaker?  If I can't find a replacement speaker only, I could try and find a pair of these.  One of the other cones has a small perforation (which didn't seem to impact audio quality) which would be good to remove.

 

- or I could just buy second hand speakers on eBay / Gumtree so it's not like these can't be replaced and should I find something else better?  We don't have loads to spend on stuff but I had hoped to continue to capitalise on a base cheap set

 

- are Concept 8's or 10's a decent improvement over the 6's?  I'm sure they all exist for a reason but it's not like I could audition them in a showroom these days

 

Thanks for any input

These are also very frequently available on Gumtree and the like. The Dali were quite popular when Wow and JB sold them...

To answer a few Qs I do have the 2's and 6's and the drivers are probly the same. I bought the 6's cuz they sounded better than the 8's when I auditioned, but have since heard another pair side by side and the 8's have an edge in the bass. The 10's could be an upgrade if you want bigger sounds, but I reckon both are overpriced and overrated. Really id go purchase a more modern and better quality Dali speaker such as the Zensor 7's ive seen those going for unbelievably cheap prices around the traps (400 a set)
