NOTE: Due to some recent repairs, we must ask you NOT to try to repair these speakers on your own.
Do not remove the screws to take the ribbons apart. This can and HAS caused more damage in some cases. If additional damage has been done to the ribbons due to missing or damaged parts, addition fees may apply. Again, please do not take the ribbons apart prior to shipping them to us. Normal lead-time is 4-6 weeks.

Standard repair pricing does not cover Damage due to shipping, broken or missing parts. Repair pricing does include return shipping inside the 48 states. Additional shipping charges will apply to parts being shipped outside the 48 states.

Due to having received many ribbons damaged due to lack of appropriate packing,
we are posting photos of the CORRECT way to package your ribbons. We will not be responsible for damage during shipping. Do not skimp on packing materials.

1) Wrap your ribbons in 2-3″ thick of ((1″ BUBBLE)) bubble wrap, anything less will void your insurance. Make sure you have EXTRA bubble wrap hanging over the ends of the ribbon to act as cushioning for the ends of the ribbons, tape the ends closed very well. PROTECT THE CIRCUIT BOARDS!

2) Place the WELL PADDED ribbon in a box approx. 10″x10″ and completely fill all voids with shipping popcorn.

They need to be insured as if they were LOST, and need to be replaced… a few have been lost over the years, and a new one costs much more than the repair price.
30″ ribbons should be insured for $400 ea.
48″ ribbons should be insured for $650 ea.
60″ ribbons should be insured for $750 ea.

Hi Panelman, Where are you getting the replacement ribbons from? You have to build a jig for taking them apart and putting them together, to much chance of getting hurt or broken magnets, I have one apart right now that I need a ribbon for. Al

we are currently in the process of having new ribbon made.instead of using kapton we will be using mylar and aluminium foil,already made a jig to stretch the ribbon.i manage to take the ribbon apart easily but getting it back together might prove more of a mistake ive noticed is that carver spray painted the ribbon metal plates and stuck the magnets to the painted surface-big mistake.all the magnets on my ribbon were loose-the glue had all dried out.we have stripped the painted surface-rear only and reglued all magnets back in place,theres no need for paint on the rear surface and only makes it more difficult for a good bond to the magnets.
