    Absolutely agree Joe - was just answering the question.

    Yeah, but beta testers of the product started to see these failures back in 2010/2011 after two-three years of use. So relatively pleased mine lasted 11 years or so, I obviously started preparing for the failure for some years now - as well as the foam surrounds purchased in 2015, I have a new in box pair of Faital Pros (2018) and a new in box pair of Logitech 170089's snapped up when some appeared on eBay, also in 2018.
    Just ordered some more foams as well, I have many more speakers to keep in top shape!!

    Possibly, some forum members managed to fit Dayton Audio ND91-4 with some modifications to the case and speakers

    I have described the matter and how to repair it in detail, and there is also a draft with measurements plus a new image with all measurements you need:


    • negative terminal size: 2.8mm
    • positive terminal size: 5.2mm
    • mounting hole diameter: 4mm
    • Distance between opposite mounting hole centres: 90mm
    • Depth of the driver from the mounting flange to the back of the magnet: 59mm
    • Diameter of the opening in the front case baffle: 82mm
    • Distance between the edge of the "front baffle hole" and the centre of one of the mounting screw holes: 9.5mm

    Hi Joe,
    Just wondering if you knew what the DC voice coil resistance of the genuine logitech woofer ?

    I see that the FaitalPRO-3FE25-3 drivers are back in stock at Parts Express. There are 4 ohm or 8 ohm versions available, so just wondering which is better suited.

    thanks

    Sure, I just measured 3.7Ω on one of the originals, close enough to 4Ω.


    PN me if your Boom / Classic / Transporter display has issues!

    With Joe's update to let us know about 4 ohm I would think this should work.

    Sounds like it should be in stock by the end of the month.

    Some may remember that I ordered some replacement drivers fro Ali-Express ?

    Well they turned out to be nill stock and I got my money refunded.

    Luckily parts express had the FaitalPRO drivers back in stock, so I ordered a couple of those.
    After a bit of modifying, they fitted great !

    They sounded very average.......... until they were "run in" for about 20 hours, then they sounded just like the old ones !!!
    I have the bass set at +10 and the treble set at +2

    I have ordered new rubber surrounds and will give that a try.

    Hi,
    I ordered new foam rings and glue from speakerrepairshop.nl to my second sb boom. The sound is exactly the same as my other one after repair, i recomend that use glue on both contact surfaces and wait a couple of minutes before gluing them together.
