I am working on finding a suitable replacement as OEM drivers are not available like most of the others.

Just wanted to let everyone that ordered drivers know that they should have an email about final payment and shipping.

Well I went looking and bought this one from madisound and so far it seems to work well.

Likewise, I'm interested in spare woofers.  Any left?  I have an RSC200, and pairs of RSS300, RS250, and RS1000s.

Also, is this a good tweeter replacement driver?

I getting some harsh sound from one of my mid range drivers on my RS750sig. I am looking for a replacement. Or if this is a fools errand, can I replace both mid range on the set? I have this set in the living room for  2 channel only.

 

Thank in advance.

Still looking for a replacement driver on my RS750, I sent a msg to Sandbager along with my earlier request. Guess everyone stupid busy for the holidays.

 

Any one else have a direction that I can look? I did a national search on Cregs List the only hit was in LA for the hole speaker 100$ but pickup only.

 

Thanks in advance

I am down to only a few RSC200 (bigfoot) woofers and a few RS1000/850 Woofers.

If you need one or think you might in the future you might want to get these while you still can.

Any ideas on my RS750s drivers I need? getting desperate. Or any thoughts on  a replacement not even close to spec. I hate to trash them just for one driver.

Thanks in advance.

Any suggestions on a replacement driver/amp for a UFW-10? It's for my wifes room so it doesn't need to be anything earth shattering.

This amp from PE is a good replacement http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=300-803  Its the right size and about the right power for the stock driver and use the bass boost on it too.  If you need a driver too, I might have one of those around here.

I dont have any, and I couldnt get any from the original manufacturer in China either when I ordered a bunch of drivers for other speakers I could get drivers.

I am trying to get a hold of my old RS750's (sold them years ago and now have changed hands again) so I can measure a driver and come up with something close.... no promises though

Just wanted to post up that I will very soon have a sutible replacement for the following

RS750 woofers
RS850/1000 woofers and MIDS
RSC200 MID

These are not original drivers but a very close match, measurements are almost dead on now.

I am still working on the mounting as the return flange does not mate up exactly to my speakers but depending on what version they might.  It is going to take some gasket material to make them a surface mount vs what I would call a flush mount.  Also the driver color is not the silver/aluminum right now.  I am working on a close color match or will just make them black.

Is everything still in the works? I need one and maybe one backup for my RS750.  I'm game for any color and I can also make it work with or without a gasket,

Thanks again.

Ok after a bunch of work and a lot of PITA

I now have

RS850/1000 woofers
RS850/1000 MID range
RSC200 MID range

The return flange does not mate up exactly to my speakers but depending on what version you have they might.  It is going to take some gasket material to make them a surface mount vs what I would call a flush mount. I will include the gasket material.   Also the driver color is not the silver/aluminum right now.  I tried my best to match up the aluminum powder spray that is stock and just couldnt get anything close. They are all a black textured finish now.  I can supply pictures if you want to see what they look like.

I have a few of each in stock but wont be something I stock in the future, although I should be able to get more in.  It will take some time to modify them and paint the cones.

Email me for more info

I seem to have likely blown my tweeter on one of my RS850 speakers. Anyone know if one of the Vifa ring radiator offerings at Parts Express would be a suitable replacement?? I have found some past threads online that mention the XT25TG30 as being a replacement.
http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=264-1016

I plan on checking my leads on the driver and crossover to make sure it isn't just a connection issue, but I presume I should also be planning for a replacement.

I am interested in grill covers for REF 3.  Several of the Male connectors snapped off.  

I took the covers off and haven't looked back but it would be nice to have the grills.  With Ninja mods I don't plan on selling anytime soon.

Greetings old AV123ers.

I've had a home theater based on four RS750s and an RSC200 center purchased about 12 years ago.  Sometime later I added a UFW-12 (original, no mods).  It's that subwoofer that seems to have had its power supply curl up and die after being in service for about a decade.  i came home from a Memorial Day trip to hear the unit clicking loudly over and over.  I pulled the plug and let it cool down, only plugging it back in three hours later to see what would happen (although I wasn't expecting anything good).  After a minute or so of buzzing, I powered the unit down.

I'm expecting that after heat and age, I've probably blown some caps although it could be other things.  I had always wanted to replace this unit in my home theater with a proper ported sub and move the UFW-12 to my two channel room (although my 20 year old SoundWave Grand Soliloquys don't really need much lower range help for music).  I don't really have budget right now to go to SVS and pick out the sub of my dreams, so I'm looking around for some advice on fixing this one.  I know that Mark and Kevin has been fixing these things over the years, so I need to know if that it still an option.  I am fairly handy with a soldering iron so there are some things I can do myself.  I fixed some bad caps on my Mitsubishi TV years ago, and more recently on one of my Tivos.

One other note:  A few months before AV123 imploded I received a package from them that was a driver upgrade for the original UFW-12 that was designed to make up for some of the design deficiencies of the original UFW-12.  Then the proverbial crap hit the fan with them and I never even bothered opening the box (it's still in my basement).  I'm not sure if it's worth cracking open as a project now, or even what's the difference of what I have now.  Maybe you guys have an inkling.

I am still still doing the small block updates and if the amp is 100% dead can replace with a new amp.
Probably easier to just send me an email and we can talk or give me a call
