Has anyone any ideas where I can purchase speaker cones for 5 inch and 6 inch valve radio speakers. Bowler

I used the following when replacing suspensions in subwoofer speakers. They also offer cones.

I fully recommend Queensland Speaker Repairs as I had a speaker repaired through them at the request of one of my customers and the work was splendid. It actually looked like a new speaker.

Some of the newer cones can be a wow factor.

Several years ago I serviced a Lyric 70 series with its heavy weight 1929 Rice-Kellogg speaker (first of the modern moving coil type) It had a Foam Mount cone replacement fitted and despite being driven by a #50, sound is impressive.
