My Dad has asked me to help him buy new speakers because I'm a classical musician and have better/more trained ears than him.
He has a set of old Acoustic Research AR48s. The foam around the mid and woofer has completely disintegrated. After doing some reasearch online it appears that the foam is replacable.
Is it worth it to fix the foam, & (cones if neccesary) or even buy new drivers? Detail at http://simplyspeakers.com/
Or should he just start over? I know he is not into HIFI and would probably not want to spend more than $300. (I'm thinking craigslist or ebay)
Help me help my Dad!
