View Full Version : Repairing Mission speakers

My mum has a pair of old broken Mission 710's and she said she would like them repaired for christmas. There is nothing much wrong with the speakers, the casing and everything is fine but around the edge of the woofers it has erroded and thus I think they need replacing.Picture here. ( .

What should I do? Do they need taking to a mission specialist, can I put any old woofers in there? What do you adivse, my budget is about £100 ($170ish)

Any help is much appriciated. Thanks in advance.

I'd suggest going to a mission dealer, they should be able to put you in the right direction or even supply you with replacement drivers. You can't just put any old driver in there because the crossover is matched for that specific driver and tweeter.

my 12" JBL sub looked like yours. The surroundings fell off like mushroom. I ordered the repair kit from and they worked out great.

Just search for "speaker repair" on the web. If the surrounds are rotted and there's nothing else wrong with the drivers, it's a pretty simple and inexpensive job for a speaker repair shop to replace the surrounds. Would probably have to remove the drivers to send them out. At least one of the connectors on the driver will have some kind of marking on or near it (sometimes a red dot to mark the positive connector). Just make sure you write down what color wire goes where for reinstalling them. The repair shop can give you advice on how to pack them safely.

There are kits to replace the surrounds yourself, it's not that hard, but sending them out may be safer if you don't know alot about how drivers work.
