Replacement woofers are available from (I think) orovox.

I'm sure someone will respond with the info. I replaced 4 of mine & they work great.

I had the same problem and ordered all new replacements, plus I refinshed the wood and put new material on the grills worth every penny. Here is a link for the speakers http://www.dynavox.com/product_info.php ... ducts_id=5 just copy and paste into your browser. If you have any questions just ask.

I would call them on Monday and see when the next order is going to arrive. There was a discount that was available if you ordered them and were a member of their face book page. Let me know before you start taking them apart I have some time savers for you.

First off take lots of pictures of the wireing to each of the speakers all six, and close up and put a piece of tape with the letters L or R and a number 1 to 3 so that it shows up in the pic. You will notice that all of the speakers have a red mark on one of the terminals as you unsolder the connections tape the wires together and mark them red or plus and the other minus So for each speaker you will have taped the pos together and the neg together. Unsolder from the bottom and work your way up removing the speakers. .... When you resolder them back in start with the top and work your way down. Now back to removing the cross over, it is held in by a few screws. There is no need to unsolder anything else when you remove the ribbons all of the wireing will follow them. Be very carefull and put them in a safe place and have help holding the ribbons in place while removing the screws. Now for the refinishing... the wood is not solid it is a veneer you want ro use a finish remover first, then lightly sand ,you can use an electric sander (small) not a belt sander you have about 3/16 to work with. Save some room to use 220 grit last. Pick your stain and finish I would recommend a hand rubbed finish not one applied with a brush and 5 to 7 coats I will help you here later once you figure what type of stain you are going to use. This will show you what I did . viewtopic.php?f=15&t=12210

If you use stripper to remove a finish and the wood is in good condition, that is it doesn't need repairs, there is no reason in the world that you have to sand anything. After stripping, clean the wood really well with mineral spirits and let dry for at least 24 hours before applying stain and/or a clear coat.

I agree, but you can get those sponge sand blocks cheap, and take off any residue/etc with little effort.

Most people don't have the patient to stain well even though it is easier than painting.

Put on THIN coats, and don't be afraid to brush it down with the sponge blocks between coats.

Now that's the best use of a "stripper" that I've heard of since the guy who, when propositioned by a prostitute with the line "I'll do anything for $100" replied, "Paint my house".
It should sound like it isn't there!

Not sure I understand -

Using a good paint/varnish/etc remover does no harm to the wood, and blasting away at it with a sander is more work and can destroy.
Like I said, you still need to sand after that, but less.
It is just a good way to go.

The wood is not wood it is veneer be very carefull I refinish products for a part time job. listen to what I say if you need help let me know. After using a stripper the grain is exposed and must be closed.
