Mr.
I ordered on line from Simply Speakers and promptly received an 8" foam repair kit (FSK-8) for my Genesis 1+ speakers (1979 vintage). The old green foam had deteriorated years ago. The repair was relatively simple. I watched a couple videos from the company. I took my time to get as much old residue off the cone and speaker frame using alcohol and a utility knife. Go slow. Keep work area covered. Cleaning took me a little longer than the video, but this was the first time I did it. The old glue residue took some effort to remove from the speaker frame. Follow the instructions when gluing to ensure you glue the cone to foam first and then the foam to frame. Also, read instructions on which surface to apply glue to for foam to cone. That seemed to be a bit different than the video. Glue application is based on whether you have an angled foam/cone surface or a flat foam / cone surface. Read up first. I used a bit too much glue on one speaker but it seems to be fine. I liked the glue provided in the kit. Once you apply the glue, make sure you promptly mate the surfaces and smooth them out. You have a few minutes at most before the glue sets. Get everything lined up first before applying glue. Apply glue and immediately mate the two surfaces and smooth out / join the foam to cone. And there is no need to remove the center dust cover and shim the cone as seen in some online videos. The glue sets quickly. You can move the cone in and out when doing this to make sure the cone is centered The result was fantastic. I had not realized the impact of the loss of the foam on the speaker performance. It immediately restored low frequency from the speakers. They sound 100% better than before the refoaming. They seem to work like brand new. One other note ... The speaker wiring was attached with small wire lugs / clips. I did not have to cut the wires or resolder. I just used a pair of electricians pliers to remove the wiring clips/connectors. Make sure you mark them to get them hooked up correctly when reinstalling.

Used this kit to refoam two 8 inch Genisis Model 1 bookshelf speakers acquired in the late 70s. The kits didn't fit as well as the last speakers I did as the foam was a bit large, but I was able to make it fit by cutting the foam and adding an overlap seam to arrive at the correct size. The results are excellent as it brought my speakers back to life with clear bass now eliminating the distortion entirely. They sound as good a new and so easy to do even with the additional seams.

I love the sound of my "new" Genesis speakers! I had purchased these as a high school student in 1978, and due to the disintegration of the foam surrounds, I stopped using them sometime in the early 90's. They were relegated to the attic, with the thought of buying all new parts someday. Well, no need for a total rebuild, just the replacement of the foam surrounds, supplied quickly from Simply Speakers. After watching their clear video tutorial, I replaced the old surrounds with new ones, like they were made for the cone! I had never done this type of repair before, and I was a bit nervous. But, I took my time and followed the instructions carefully. I am now ready to rebuild another set of Genesis speakers I found in a yard sale about 5 years ago, with the same foam issue. I can't wait to hear what they sound like!

Piece of cake
Took about 4-5 hours to refoam my Genesis II speakers over the weekend and it went great. Instructions were easy to follow, and fortunately, the real life install was just as easy. The prep took some time, but it was well worth it once it came time to glue everything. It is great getting my Genesis speakers working again. Highly recommend!!

Outstanding!!!
Repaired 2 Genesis IIIs and 2 Genesis IIs, vintage 1979, purchased 1979 ... I obviously really like these speakers, especially now that I can crank them up again. I followed the online repair video, no problems ... a straight forward repair for the DIYer. I regret now that I did not order the repair kits for the Genesis III passive radiators at the same time to save on shipping. To sum up ... I'm very happy with the product, results are ... outstanding!

Mr.
Prompt shipping, excellent instructions, good product, and after a few hours work my Genesis IIs sound as good as they did in 1979. Can't ask for better than that.

GEN-FSK-8/MI-1291FG Genesis 8" Foam Speaker Repair Kit
It was an easy job re-foaming the 8" speakers in my father's 1980 vintage Genesis cabinets. The You-Tube video was well worth the watch – no surprises. I hope to get another 30 years out of these wonderful speakers.
