Hello,

I am a new owner of a pair of Altec 19 speakers and of course they are missing the foam inserts around the horn. I have seen a lot of references in online forums to a source of replacements by way of a couple of folks living in North Carolina by the name of Darst. However, the newest post I could find that mentions them is several years old. I used the email given in the forum posts to email the Darsts, but have not heard anything back. Does anyone know if they are still in business, or what a good alternate source for the foams might be?

regards,
Dave

After a long journey and some heavy lifting, I finally got the Altec 19's into the living room. Three things I am wanting to do with these -

1) check out the crossover - may need a rebuild with new/better caps
2) dampen the HF horn
3) find some replacement foam for around the horn

Any help with #3 greatly appreciated!

thanks,
Dave

Dude come on, we get it. You sell the foam. I think we got it the first 2 times you listed it here.


let it die. Or better yet create a thread in the marketplace:eek:.
