Really? Please do tell your source, because no one else seems to have been able to find replacement woofers for the Boom. Unless you mean replacing them with external self-powered speakers.

Several forum members would be truly grateful if you/they could find suitable replacement woofers, now and in the future as (I presume) more Booms will require such replacements.

My Boom location is a virtual testing lab for such devices. In my garage streaming 24/7 almost all year (unplugged maybe 6 weeks per year for vacations, longer biz trips, etc..).
I'm in NE Ohio so it sees humid summers and very cold winters (down to about zero F), again streaming 24/7.
A few things that may help in my situation:
- usually lower volumes as background music, though I do crank it now & then
- it is connected to a sub (likely less woofer strain)
- running 24/7 it probably maintains a more consistent internal temperature range than turning it on and off regularly

Has anyone tried the HiVi M3N as a replacement for the Squeezebox Boom woofer?
This is available from madisoundspeakerstore.com, and details of size and mountings can be found on the swanspeaker.com site.
I have never taken mine apart so have no feel for the actual size of the orginal.
