General Questions
Can I change my order?
Orders that have shipped cannot be modified. If your order has not shipped, we may be able to change it for you. Please send your change request to us as soon as possible.

I am not sure if my repair kit fits my speaker?
STOP! Please contact us right away. DO NOT glue anything if you are unsure of the fit or sizing. If your speaker needs a different size kit and you attempt to install it, there are no returns! Please contact us right away.

How do I measure my speaker?
Measure the outer diameter of the speaker frame. This is the speaker's nominal size.

Measure just the speaker cone and note whether the cone has a flat lip, or is angled where the surround attaches.

What are the parts of a speaker?
See speaker cross section below. This shows all the parts of a typical woofer or midrange speaker or "driver".
What is the difference between a "flat" cone and an "angle" cone?
"Flat edge" cone. Has a flat lip where the surround attaches. "Angle edge" cone. Has an angled lip where the surround attaches. See images below.

Was I supposed the get two surrounds in my foam replacement kit? I think I only received one surround. What happened?
Two foam edges are included with most of our kits and they are simply stuck together in the package. Peel the two surrounds apart. Some kits are sold in packs of ONE edge only, so be sure your ordered the correct amount.

Installation Questions
Optimus Pro LX5, LX55, CS5, Pro 77, RCA woofer removal procedure.
How to remove the front baffle to access the woofers in the Optimus Pro LX5, LX55, CS5, Pro 77, RCA and others with Linaeum Ribbon Tweeters:

Remove the front grill. Using a pair of needle nose pliers, carefully remove the rubber grommets that secure the grill pegs in place. Behind these grommets you will see the Phillips head screws that secure the two halves of the cabinet together.

Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws that secure the front baffle to the rear cabinet assembly. Dis-assemble the front baffle from the rear cabinet. Be careful regarding the wires running from the crossover to the woofer and Linaeum ribbon tweeter.

You can now easily remove the woofer from behind the baffle to replace the surrounds with our New-Edge-It repair kit.

How to wire an l-pad.
  • L-Pad controls the volume of each individual driver in a speaker system with a constant 8 Ohm impedance at the crossover.
  • Full volume has no attenuation and minimum volume is as much as -40db.
  • Midrange and tweeter drivers typically "see" only about 10% to 15% of total system power, therefore you can safely use a lower L-Pad power rating with most systems.
Toyota Avalon subwoofer removal.
How to remove the Toyota Avalon rear deck subwoofer model 86160-AC180:

Climb into the back seat. The speaker cover, which also houses the stop light assembly, is held in place with a couple of pop-in clips near the front of the cover. Using your fingers lift up firmly on the forward most portion of speaker cover enclosure, right where it touches the rear deck. The cover/enclosure should lift up about an inch as the pop-in clips come loose. If you can’t get it with your fingers, carefully use a flathead screwdriver to pry it up. Now carefully pull the cover forward, towards the front of the car, about an inch. This should free the fingers that hold the rear of the cover in place. Reach back and disconnect the stop light wiring harness plug. You have to press on the center of the plug to release the lock as you pull it out of the socket. The cover should now lift away easily.

You can now see the woofer/speaker mounted in a black plastic frame held to the rear deck using 4 x 10mm bolts. DO NOT remove the speaker from the black plastic frame. Remove the speaker and the black plastic frame together. Using a 10mm deep well socket remove the 4 bolts holding the speaker frame in place. Now comes the slightly difficult part. The sides of the plastic speaker frame are under the fiberboard rear deck. You have to push the speaker frame to one side about an inch, further up under the rear deck fiberboard panel, so the other side of the speaker frame will lift up clear of the deck panel. It takes some doing. Lift the panel and push the speaker at the same time, kind of working it back and forth to get it to move. Once you get one side free and clear, the other side comes out pretty easily. If you have a helper, they can push the subwoofer up from inside the trunk. The speaker wire is still connected. Reach down and unplug the speaker using the same method. The speaker and frame will now lift clear.

You can use the radio while the woofer is removed. Change the fader all the way to the front speakers.
