What is a fair fee for re-edging?
« on: September 13, 2004, 07:43:51 AM »

I got a pair of JBL 4411 which was about to be thrown out due to completely deteriorated foam surroundings on the bass drivers. A guy form LA wrote on another board, that he usually payed 10$ a piece for reedging. I contacted the Danish JBL distributor. They ask 433$ a piece!!, which in my opinion is far more, that the actual 128h units are worth.

Does anybody know someone in Denmark who does reedging? And what would you consider a fair maximum price for such a job?

I have contacted a company named basrep now. I am still awaiting an answer. It appears they have 2 options. Either foam or rubber. I wonder, in what ways a new edging will make the drivers differ from the original specs. Also could it be an idea to go rubber to avoid the same situation again in a few years?

Basrep charges 80$ for foam and 90$ for rubber, which is a bit heaver and thereby takes a little more power and lowers the resonance frequency a bit - supposedly not hearable.

What do you experienced people say? Is it too much or ok? I am still considering, whether the drivers are worth the price.

I have the feeling that I have more experience in my little finger than you do in your whole body about audio electronics..
