Looks harder than it is. I love to recycle. This is a very ecology-friendly task.
Watch the video. Check out the parts and the subject speakers. Watch the video again just prior to repair. Maybe keep it on hand while doing the first speaker, hitting the pause button while doing each step.

The foam repair kit was a breeze to install. I was a little nervous but watched the UTube video & everything went smoothly. The speakers now sound good as new. Thanks Simply Speakers.

This speaker foam replacement kit is great. Instructions and video are right on the mark making for a simple repair job. Just have the patience to let everything dry before the next step in the process and your speakers will sound like new. My Advent Towers operate like they did the day I bought them! It makes zero cents to discard the drivers when you can do this to them! Thanx for a great product!

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.
