Acoustic Research 8″ Refoam Kit
This kit will fit many AR 8″ speaker models that have an angled attachment to cone. Check for correct dimensions.. Model #’s include AR9, AR90, AR18b, AR18s and many more.
Each Refoam Kit includes all the materials needed to repair two (2) woofers:
– Refoaming Instructions
– 2 Foam Surrounds
– Shims For Centering the 1″ or 1.5″ Voice Coils
– 2 Dust Caps
– 1 Bottle of Specially Formulated Foam Surround Adhesive
*It can be very difficult to refoam a speaker without removing the dust cap and inserting the plastic shims in the voice coil gap. The plastic shims are used to center the voice coil and cone assembly while the speaker is being refoamed. If you do not use the plastic shims, the voice coil may be off center and it may lead to the voice coil rubbing.
