I think you are good! I was down for some but no longer need any so you can take what I was getting so no worries.

Re: **SOLVED ORDER NOW** Carver Platinum / Silver 12" Surrou

Good news....... i have just found somebody stock these replacement foam surround for the Carver 12" woofers in Italy, Europe.
I don't really care of how much the surround costs at this point as long as i can repair my Amazing TAL and get them up and working after so many yrs in LIMBO....
This is their person of contact---maria.itt@hotmail.it---
Grab the surrounds while its still available.
Good luck all members.

Do they have a web site?

Not to poo poo on this great news, but it would really help to get a little more history on the process before plunking down cash on an email address.

$15 Euros is about $20 US plus shipping for surrounds. Just a novice and have never nor capable of doing a surround. However, may be better to wait for sale from Dynavox for $29 for the whole driver.

okay ,
how did you find these? edit:(I see your in Italy)
what is the site?
how much per pc?
=========================================================

I am here in Italy with the US military as you can see the FPO address.
I found this shop through an Italian technician colleague.
This is a Italian Audio repair shop for all foreign imported products.
Don't think they have a website....since they do all the repairs themselves.
In facts, they had asked me to send them the woofer for re-cone.
Even though if they have a website....i would not able to read it since it will be all in Italian.
I ask them for this favor through my Italian technician colleague to sell me a set of these original foam surrounds.(much cheaper than mailing them all my woofers and back, agree?)
Since i have my TAL sitting in my living room for yrs. and its hard explaining to wife....
Either i toss the spks that i had paid new for over $2400.00 or pay whatever it costs to get it fixed...is this simple.
I am more than happy for Euro 15 per foam ring(thats included Italian sale tax of 21%)

Just sharing what i had found with all members on here in the best of faith to help everyone out.

How long have we been looking/hoping for this replacement surround?
How many yrs so far?
So don't give me no sh*t....or maybe i should have just mind my own business?
You tell me.

Hey look, I have a guy around the corner that can put a product on these woofers to make them work for $10 each. This thread is dedicated to getting the most exact fit out there. What I am asking is can you please tell us a bit about this this before buying into it.

Every members have asked around and tried with many methods to get this Carver woofer re-cone without any success.
The webmaster even trying to get a mold specially made so he can stamp out new foam surrounds.
If you have a person around the corner that can put a product on these woofers to make them work for only $10 buck....then we must be all just imbeciles for so many yrs....

I thought this thread is to let each member knows how and where can we obtain the exact replacement of this surround to savage our beloved Amazing spks....
Sorry i did not know it was a money issue vs qualities.
Correct me if i am wrong, that someone has mentioned the whole replacement woofer does not come close to the original Carver driver.(in sound nor built)
If its true....believe anyone would rather recover their original drivers instead of dropping in an after market unit.

I had also mentioned that i just placed an order for these foam surround and will let everyone know once i received them.
And would like to post some pix on here to let all members to see.....
However, 1 person has answered me with a sort of trade ...saying if i post an answer....then he will tell me how to post a pic.....
Another member mentioned something about he had farted...
Am i missing out on something here guys?

If they were the one that have found this solution with an original replacement foam... i would thank them so much and will buy them a beer instead of being an smartass that is not helping, agree?
Thank you.
