I recently took possession of a pair of Berkeley's with foam rot. I am looking for an experienced pro to complete a refoam and would appreciate recommendations.

I am in London, ON and would like to stay as close as possible to the area, but don't have an issue with shipping to the right tech.

Thanks

If you’re willing to make the trek to Toronto, try The Speaker Shop.

Fab Audio was in Scarborough, but I see Jim has moved to Coburg. He replaced the surrounds on my vintage Ardens a few years ago.

Do some research to be sure you get the proper surrounds for the vintage Tannoys, (in case you haven’t already done so).

Send me a PM should you consider shipping or dropping off the drivers (with) correct surrounds. :)

I would go to Jim berghall in Burlington.
I would not go back to the speaker shop in Toronto, both myself and a friend had a bad experience there.

I would also recommend Jim in Burlington . You did say you wanted a pro correct ? From what I’ve seen of his work I think I would trust him with any speaker I needed repaired .

Tannoy Canada is in KW. I contacted them through the website. They have a service dept.

I would specifically ask whoever is doing the job about how they plan to attach the replacement surrounds. The correct way to refoam those drivers is to have the surround glued to the rear of the cone. I've seen some jobs (both good and bad) where the replacement surrounds were glued to the front, but that's not how the OEM surrounds fit.
