The repair kit is excellent quality and was easy to install on both speakers in part of an evening. I've had my speakers since 1978 and Simply Speakers provided me with these excellent parts that have brought back to life the outstanding sound you would expect from new speakers. A great value and exceptional quality.

Passive Radiator Repair Kit
I was looking for a passive radiator replacement for my 30+ year old ESS speakers. I found Simplyspeakers on the web and they were MUCH cheaper than others who had exactly the same product. The product turned up in Australia within 10 days, came with clear instructions (and glue) and they fitted and work perfectly.

These replacement passive radiators work fine -- my old ESS amt-1B bookshelf speakers sound like new again.

I purchased these speakers new over 30 years ago and are used in a home theater/music environment. Foam surrounds had been replaced at least once each over the years. This is my first experience with Simply Speakers and am very impressed, product arrived very quickly, instructions were concise and though time consuming every thing turned out great and the speakers sound like new.Very happy.

Radiators need attention as well
When we discovered the speakers in our ESS1a units had lost their foam rubber surrounds, we also found one of the passive radiators had gone bad for the same reason. The SimplySpeakers repair kit was easy to use. The only requirement is to clean the original mounting frame thoroughly and preserve the gasket. I replaced one passive radiator and am monitoring the other original one because it is still good. Our ESS1a speakers are now performing like they did when we first heard them in a showroom years ago.
