    Alon I - Deteriorated foam around woofer cone

    I have a pair of Acarian Systems Alon I speakers (circa 1992).
    The foam ring around the woofer cone has separated due to significant deterioration. The woofer on the other speaker is fine. Due to several moves/renovation they have been exposed to an extreme range of climatic changes (I have done my best to protect them by sealing them in their original shipping boxes).
    Obviously these one beautifully sounding speakers are down.

    I would really appreciate some advice/information on how to replace/repair this part.
    I can't locate the Acarian Systems website. It would be great if I could order the part and do the job myself understand I may need to ship the old boy for the job.

    It is tempting to jump into a new set but I have two kids in private school yada yada yada.

    Thanks for any insight.

    I really appreciate your very timely response. I was able to connect with Alon and hook up with a company reccomended service dude (on a Saturday!) who can repair both of the woofers for about $60. I just have to remove the woofer assembly and ship it. Sweet.

    Thanks again - great site.
