if you want to send in a black 400 watt electro-voice woofer for re-coning and get a 200 watt champagne-coloured electro-voice woofer in return (for just slightly more than the 400 watt re-cone cost last year), go for it. WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS PLACE? i've been doing business with new england speaker for over 15 years, and what a change! the guy doing the re-cones now just matches numbers (by his own admission.) the last guy really seemed like an authority on speakers. the new guy can't even send you back what you shipped in for repair. (he insists he did, but i had to cut the clips off the wires to be able to use the speaker he sent back.) i only give them one star because zero stars isn't an option.
