Our Mission is Simple
Our goal is to educate and inform about speakers and their repair, design, and ways to optimize and use.
What We Do
We are The Speaker Exchange®, world renowned speaker repair experts. This blog site is an information resource focused on the loud speaker repair and replacement needs of general audio enthusiasts, audiophiles, and professional sound engineers. We research and report on replacement parts as well techniques to recone, refoam, or re-design speaker woofers, diaphragms, cones, horns, drivers, electronic parts for JBL, Electro-Voice, Polk, Kef, Infinity, McIntosh, Adam Audio, Cerwin-Vega, Peavey, QSC and many more.

Talk to any audio enthusiast and you will hear them glow when they discuss their loudspeakers. Replacing the blown or damaged speakers we all love can be either very expensive or even impossible for vintage sets. With some know-how, speaker parts can be easily replaced or repaired, making the valued speaker as good as new. Many speakers of significant worth are left out with the trash even though they merely need a few parts, care and attention.
