I've had a blow out

(1/4) > >>

Hey guy's need your input.
Have a blow out in a midrange driver. The existing is an Eton 7-380-32 HEX.
Speaking with the speaker manufacturer and noting it is a 25 yr old speaker,
the driver is of course no longer available. They said a 7-300A8-32HEX would work.
Well, can't find that one either. Would like to find the 7-212/C8/32 HEX but as of now
can't find anything by Eton other than a paper cone 7 series. From what I understand
Eton has shut down all manufacturing while moving to a new complex.
Where do I go from here? Should I get the paper until the Hexacone become available
or should I look into new speakers. Maybe get a pair of bookshelf that I can later use in
an office setting while waiting. Is the Eton worth the wait? This has got me really screwed up.

Thanks
Don

Don,

I can’t speak as to Eton, replacements, is it worth it, etc. But it sure seems like a fun idea to find a terrific deal on some great bookshelf speakers and enjoy them while you’re sorting all this out. Depending on your budget, there should be a ton of new, used stuff that you’d enjoy.

+1 on this.  One of the issues with oldies but goodies is when parts go bad.

There are a TON of great small speakers out in the wilds.  Many of them will mate well with a subwoofer and surpass the performance of Don's Legacy's.  Time has marched on and there have been a lot of improvements in drivers:  cone materials, motors, surrounds, all of these are better these days.  I was never enthralled with Kevlar cones due to their propensity for hard to control resonances in their stop band.

I would eat this elephant one bite at a time.

Charles, have you ever heard their top of the line floor standers?? A bit pricey  :shock:
