    Friend has pair of Castle Acoustic Clyde speakers with no foam
    surround left. He also has no money - so commercial repair or
    replacement not possible. I have found foam surround suppliers in USA
    and NL but not UK - any pointers please?
    (Arfa or Nigel??)

    No knowledge, rarely see foam surrounds, and have never refoamed,
    reconed yes but again not involving foam

    Ok - thanks for the reply.
    May have to just replace the drivers - if I can ever work out if they
    are 5" or 5 1/4".

    Thanks for the suggestion - sorry for the late reply.
    I have tried that website 3 times.
    At first it looked hopeful as they had manufacturers logos - but
    clicking on the Castle logo does not get me anywhere - just a slowly
    scrolling string of unconnected pictures.
    By using the "search" button and searching for castle it only finds
    one item :-
    "Refoam kit for 2x 8 inch Castle drivers"
    Which might be what I want - but no Model where used or dimensions
    given.

    How to lose customers before they even get them...

    If time is not an issue you could bodge replace the rolls - I did a
    pair of my own completely shot 8 1/2" drivers (the rolls were hanging in
    tatters) about 12 years ago using Diamond tape as the impervious base
    and strengthened with material for longevity - still going strong
    without distortion (subjective!) but they are 100W drivers and I never
    need to use them for anything more than about 20w and mostly at about
    the 5w level! Took an evening each. C+
