Spica Speaker Repair Resources
- Written by: John Allen
This is a list of the best Spica resources I am aware of. I am always looking for additional links. Do you have something that belongs here? !
Spica Loudspeaker User Group (Yahoo)
Spica Loudspeaker User Group - Yahoo Forum
SLUG is a great resource for all things Spica.
Note: This very knowledgeable group is eager to assist Spica fans. You will find frequent references and information from the SLUG site on these pages which is used with permission from its organizer.
These are speaker rebuilders that are routinely recommended in the forums.
The Speaker Exchange: www.reconingspeakers.com
I received a glowing review of the work this company did on a Angelus woofer. The Spica owner said "..they handled my Polydax 8” driver with loving care. I highly recommend them". Apparently the cone was split and the Speaker Exchange was the only resource that would consider repairing it.
