Re: 1990 "Sota Time Domaines series 4"

I have the step-son of the Wilson watts pups. I just want to make them sound "New" again for they have a rubber surround issue(worn) and one surround was injured as well as a tweeter lost its magnet in shipment. These cabinets are over 1.5" thick and the crossovers are of the best possible quality of the time. My question really is how do you replace 7" dual voice coil drivers now? Jeeze I feel so hopeless, I know the knowledge is here on listening of speakers but how about saving a speakers life. The boxes are perfect, not the ugly oak but satin black and they really did sound great for my investment of 5,000.00 a pair at the time. (1990) Please don't share with me what is wrong with them but if you have any sort of compassion tell me or share with me where you would start.
Best regards

I wished I own a pair that nice, and sorry it is Past Tense right now. I would call Wilson and talk to them. It may be a less costly repair than you think.

It seems like a great company that would do a reasonable job at taking care of their customers. I would start with them.

Best of luck,

Jim

I completely agree with Jim the first move is to contact the manufacturer.

These are NOT Wilson Watts but rather manufactured by "SOTA" the turntable company I am sure you are familiar with.
Thanks anyway
Bo

Hey guys!
Sorry about the typo error on the SOTA "Time Domaine" speakers they actually were purchased in 1990.

The rubber surrounds can be replaced quite easily. There are DIY Kits as well as several speaker repair sites on line that can do the job. The tweeters are a whole other issue.
Take some detailed photos and show them on the Audioarma forum and even the AudioAsylum site. You could very well find someone who is familiar with your speaker system to give advice. Re-capping the crossovers is always a nice upgrade to an old speaker system.
