Default Replacing Socks on Quad 989

Hi,
I acquired a pair of 989s about a year ago. They were in very good condition apart from some minor snags on the socks. However, the real problem was the colour…these black tombstones were never going to be a success in our house.
Purchasing a replacement pair of socks in a more acceptable colour was easy One Thing Audio (One Thing Audio) here in the UK were helpful and provided some swatches. We selected a blue shade (in honour of my old JBLs, but that’s another story).

This brief article explains all the steps to replace the socks on 989s. It does not require any soldering or wire cutting, not does it require dust cover replacement. It is a job that takes about 25 minutes. Read this article completely before you start.

If you find any errors please let me know

Default Modified Sock Description

Unfortunately, my second speaker was not as easy to fix as the first, so I attach an updated description of how to deal with this.

For some reason I was unable to edit my original Post, hence this new one.
