If you have the SMG, you can also get a Kit from Magnepan, if you want to attempt the rebuilt yourself. A couple of years ago the kit for the MG IIIa was $100 which includes all the wire and supplies to rebuilt both panels. I would think the Kit for the SMG would be less.

If you decide not to repair them, their are folks out there that will buy them and repair them.

The SMGa is the model that most feel is the best of their smaller panels.

The different models of the SMG were, SMG, SMGa, SMGb, SMGc.

Just to re-enforce what ktuuri mentioned, I have just spoken with the parts and service department at Magnepan and ordered a rebuild kit for my SMGa speakers. The grand total was $113, shipping included. This includes:

Wire for the tweeter and woofer sections, Aluminum solder Overcoating adhesive: 3M's "30-NF"and Full instructions.

Pretty good!
