    Are those the original speaker cones? I don't know why, but all of the speakers I have laying around have blown speakers

    If you don't abuse them they will last!! I have a set of Yamaha NS1000 monitors that are 32 years old this month. Still sound as good as the day they were new. Wish I could say the same thing about the speakers in the van..... Jim.

    Wow John. You make this look so easy to tackle. That veneer really came out cool.

    How old you reckon those speakers were? What was the motive behind the restoration. Was this a client based project or family or just something you do.?

    Great job.

    Could you show us a picture of the veneer in its raw state and its backing, i aint seen this stuff before. Who would be the supplier here in Canada. This type of veneer opens up options for guys without a bag and vacuum pump for flatwork i guess, how does one use it on curved surfaces? Can it be bent with say steam
    cheers
