Nice looking speaks there, fellas!
I finally took the plunge into refoaming. I have been looking for a pair of Infinity Kappa 5's for quite a while, as I want to give a pair to my brother. I have Kappa 6's and love them. But the Kappa 5 is a bit of a rare bird, and even moreso as I wanted them in oak. Finally scored a pair at a decent price, but the reason was the woofer foam was totally shot.
I have never refoamed woofers before, so I was a bit nervous. I've read up a lot on it, and decided to try. I ordered the appropriate kit from Simply Speakers. The kit was good, as were the instructions, but its still not the easiest thing in the world. Including waiting for the first dry cycle, it took 2.5 hours start to finish. I am sure smaller woofers like this 6.5" are easier than the big ones. I did have to work hard on one to ensure no voice coil rub (I did them "by feel"), but I seem to have succeeded. They sound great!!!! Going to be tough letting them go, but I think my brother will be psyched. I won't claim that my refoam job was the prettiest, but its not horrid. Final product:
