My first time to attempt this repair. Results were perfect! Easy to install with clearly written instructions and very helpful video. Highly recommended!

KEN-FSK-12A Kenwood 12"
Ordered one set of KEN-FSK-12A Kenwood 12" Foam Speaker Repair Kit FSK-12A (PAIR) for my broken KENWOOD LSK-700.
The set was slightly too lage.
But that wasn't a problem.
I did cut out about 1/2 Inch off the set and joined the two ends together.
Now it fits perfectly.
The only tiny negative side effect consists in the fact, that the cut is visible, but only if you take a very close look at it.
But that's OK, because the speaker is covered by a speaker grill cloth and you wouldn't even recognize, that the speaker has been fixed.
I'm very happy that I've found this store on the net, shipping repair kits to overseas.

Product is excellent. Watch the video as this is key. The info in the booklet is very helpful also with the tips. Unless you have major damage beyond the foam rings, this is a surprisingly easy repair. First time I've ever done this. The speaker components are much tougher that you would think. Be patient. The most time consuming part is the clean up and removal of the damaged portion. The gluing up and reassembly is easy. Dry fit the new parts together to get a feel and an idea of the gap along the outer edge of the new ring to keep the cone centered. Gluing to the inside of the cone works better and is the easiest. The glue grabs fast when it hits the tacky stage so try to get everything as close as you can after putting the glue down and parts together. Dab a little of the glue onto a piece of heavy paper to see how it sets up and the grab factor. A little goes a long way. One half tube did my 4 speakers. If you put too much on and it squeezes out on the inside of the cone, it can be rubbed off like rubber cement and I found a toothpick worked well for removing any small glue drops along the seam. Just work the toothpick in a rubbing motion and the excess glue will ball up and can be removed. I had 2 12-inch and 2 8-inch to repair and what worked best for me was to clean one and glue up the cone, remove the next speaker and do the clean up. Glue up the outer edge of the first and the inner cone of the second, remove the 3rd and clean it up, remount the first, glue outer of second and cone of 3rd, etc. I moved slowly as not to do more damage and all 4 took about 7 hours. Majority of the time was clean up and wait the 1 hour for glue to dry completely. Never thought it would turn out to be so easy. Just be patient.

This repair kit was very easy to install. The instructions were clear and accurate. Two days after repairing these speakers, I saw a set of Infinity speakers someone was throwing away, well guess what? I grabbed them and replaced the foams and now I have a great set of speakers to use in my shop.

The speaker foam kit was easier than I thought, and was just like the video. After assembly you couldn't tell if that was a factory install. I am now looking at yard sales to find rotted foam speakers at a real discount so I can repair them and keep/sell them. This kit puts the life back into speakers, when done right, and restores the performance. Thanks for the product
