    They'll load, it just takes long because these are large pics.

    I've replaced surrounds on many speakers, and even re-coned a few. I finished that pair and they look awesome and sound incredible. I have two other Cerwin Vega pairs that I'm doing, a pair of AT-12, and a pair of A-324, as well as a pair of Avid 102-A and a pair of Infinity bookshelf speakers, along with a few others.

    Obviously the left speaker is done, the right is the condition I got them in. I am meticulous in quality of the finished product. I've seen some really bad speaker repairs, but mine will pass for a factory job.

    I quadruple glue them, to assure the only movement is on the rolled portion of the surrounds. By keeping the flat portions from bending, they last longer too, and there is no distortion from uneven speaker cone flexing.

    Is this the antiques road show forum? They still don't make them like they used to.
