Audiophiles: Assemble!

These Infinity RS 6000 towers have been with me for 30 years; probably THE most important tool in my internal art kit.

The foam seals on the large cone drivers gave out and turned to powder, and the sound turned to a buzzy mess. I ordered new foam seals and took it all apart and replaced the seals- if you have nice older speakers with this issue it is an easy & cheap diy fix. If only my Carver Amp had survived as long…

I started the project by hunting through youtube demos on speaker repair; simplyspeakers posted a standout demo by an experienced professional who earned trust through clearly explaining his expertise- I ordered their repair kit. The kit arrived quickly and all four woofers are now in perfect working order; a straight-forward and satisfying d.y.i. project. Only when I had installed the kit did I realize how long the sound quality had been in decline. Listening is a nuanced pleasure again.
