Thank You so much for making my 20yr old Advents sound like they were brand new. Almost gave them to the junk man last year. Was surfing the web looking for inexpensive sub-woofers and ran across your site. Preparation and installation were a breeze.
When my co-workers asked how my weekend was, I told them great, I re-foam my speakers.

This was my first time doing speaker foam replacement. The installation went well and there were no problems. The adhesive supplied is a solvent-based clear product similar in appearance and behavior to the Testors model airplane glue that I used as a kid. It is NOT the same formulation however. After applying the adhesive as directed I used a single layer cut from a plastic sandwich bag to place between my finger tip and the foam. This keeps any excess glue from being transferred around and creating a mess. The glue does not easily stick to these plastic bags and I had a few extra squares of plastic cut should they become necessary. I wish I would have practiced squeezing a bead or two of glue along the folded edge of a scrap piece of paper first. Just fold the edge over so that it is about the same width of the area on the cone that you will be gluing. The kit comes with plenty of glue. As with every project, everything depends on preparation and cleanliness. I suspect that this process is forgiving of some leftover “junk” but I did not want to find out the hard way. I used a little Acetone on a Q-tip to remove the last of the decayed form from the cone. I did not try to remove the old adhesive from the cone. (My cones were paper. I would not try Acetone on plastic cones.) An Orange-wood cuticle stick makes a pretty good tool for removing old glue from the frame.

I couldn't be happier!
The instructions were easy to follow and the YouTube video helped out a lot.
My 25 year old Advent Prodigy Towers sound good as new. I wish I had found you guys sooner.

The 8" foam replacements worked great, instructions were right on and the video
shows all the sequences to perform the replacement. My $4 purchase from a thrift store sounds like new speakers. Now I plan on doing another speakers system.
