Thanks.  We and all our customers have enjoyed this carpet quality with the nice latex back. MIT has become a good selling point for us, and the luster that the black has also makes our cabs stand out.

You have been a really great vendor for us.

Thanks mike

Thank you Verne.
 Hope to deal with you again as some items are hard to get in Australia (gold corners are impossible).  I was lucky to find your website after doing extensive Google searches.
 Thanks for the great communication.

I appreciate the phone call and conversation about what I was doing and maybe substituting capacitors of different values.
All of the stuff came quickly. The home-made crossover circuits work very well, thank you.
It was good to do business with you and your firm.

Yes I received the parts today.  You guys rock! I will be able to listen to my sound system this weekend.  I looked at 10 websites before I found what I exactly needed on yours.  I thought I was going to have to buy something and file it down to make it fit.

Hi Verne:

Just a quick note to tell you that I received everything and am quite satisfied. Now I am deciding what I need next :)

By the way, while perusing some very high end custom guitar cabs I noticed they were using grilles, handles, and corners identical to those that you supply. You're in good company!

Thanks again!

I came across your site by Googleing.  I was giving my youngest son a quick class on crossovers.  I clicked on "The Greatest National Anthem".   WOW thanks.
Then I clicked on "The person of the Week".  That man is incredible, made me cry.  My oldest son is in Afghanistan with the 1st Infantry.  Praise God for people like them!

You were right. The electrolytics tested  fine with an LCR meter. The 4 x 15 microfarads were all around 16.7 and the 2 x 60s were at 60.
Thanks for all of your help it was very much appreciated. If I need parts in the future I will definitely send the business your way.
I replaced two woofers and my 22 year old Cerwin Vegas are back online.

Hi Verne,

The speakers arrived, in excellent shape, yesterday.  They were packed really well.  After enlarging the mounting holes on the basket (they were just a hair too small) I installed them in my Behringer Ultratwin.  I think I told you, I bought it from a local music shop for $40.  They thought both of the 30W power amps were shot.  It originally shipped w/2 ea Jensen 10Ē Vintager 35W speakers.  That seemed too low a rating Ė I figured some kid ran it on ď10Ē all the time.  The spkrs were shot.

Iím really amazed at the tonal range of the GW-1038PAís!  In the past Iíve purchased the big name brand replacement speakers from Musicianís Friend, and been pretty disappointed.  The GW-1038PAís in the Behringer solid-state modeling amp sound warmer than the Jensens that I installed last year in my Deluxe Reverb!  Iím 54 years old and grew up on tube gear.  Iíve been playing for over 40 years now and have heard many different speakers.  Youíve done an outstanding job of providing an excellent product combined with a super price.  Thank you.

I never thanked you for the help ordering the matching woofer and tweeters and the crossovers caps.  Never had I got such detailed help and direction from a parts store before in my life.  I was so impressed I told several people about you and plan to keep on going.  It was as if I had my best friend on the phone talkin.  Now my worries about speaker loss won't be as great :)

Thank you whomever was on the phone.  Your relations are of top quality as are your parts!!

Hi Verne,

I received the speaker cups today.  They are what I have searched for in the last few years, but without any place in Hong Kong selling similar items.
Thanks for your great help and I can now fix my speakers with these cups.

To Whom it May Concern:

Thank you very much for your assistance in replacing a set of old woofers.  I bought a set of Cerwin Vega speakers in the late 70's and the woofers needed
replacement.  I planned to put the speakers in my son's room.

I don't have the name of the person who helped me on the telephone but he was quite patient and helpful and I purchased a pair of the GW212/8 speakers.  The speakers arrived on the day the salesperson said they would and a few minutes later the speakers were repaired and they sound great.

Thank you again for your prompt and professional service.

Hi Verne -

I got my L's and C's yesterday, just as I wanted. Beautiful coils! They measured up within a few percent and sound damn good, a helluva lot better than the radio shack coils I've been using.

Thanks, I'll be a returning customer next time I have a need.



ps: I like the C's too.

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your help and expertise on getting me some new woofers for my 20 year old Pioneer speakers.  Weeks ago I ordered one woofer to replace one that the foam had rotted and fallen off of and that speaker sounded so good and I turned around and ordered another woofer just like the first one for the other speaker.  Now my 20 year old Pioneers with the new 12" woofers sound better than ever.  The bass has a nice good punch and is very deep and it also allowed my midranges and tweeters to sound better because they are not muffled by the muddy bass I use to get.  So instead of spending hundreds of dollars on new speakers I saved my old ones for $60 by ordering a couple of new GW212/8's from you.  And they fit perfectly in the old holes, even the screw holes lined up perfectly.  Thanks again and I'll order future speakers & speaker parts from your site.

Got the caps. How can I thank you for your time and expertise? The crossover is perfect ... as a matter of fact they sound even better than when I had the dual 15 band eq in line.

I really appreciate the time you took and all the knowledge you shared.

Hi Verne,
I recieved your grills.  They took about a week to come.  I was surprised about the quality and the weight of them.  I like the way they cover the screws and pull off to show off the speakers when needs be.

Just wanted to drop you a note. I was surprised when I stopped by the post
office today and they told me that they had a package for me. It was my
speaker grills already! I opened the box only to find what a SUPERIOR
product the grills are. They are much better than what came with the
speakers. Kind of makes me glad that I threw the other ones away. All I can
say is, you have excellent and fast service with a great product. Just so
you know, I live in Charlottesville, and stopped by Crutchfield to see if
they had anything or could help me in anyway since that's where I bought
the speakers. Well after getting the run around for about 3 weeks, I did a
search on the web and found your site. Now I have the speaker grills that I

Mike Wiseman here.  I called you about a week ago after visiting your site and we discussed troubles I was having with my Atlantic Technology right and left front channel speakers.  I'm the guy with the fried coils on the woofer/tweeter crossovers.  You told me that you'd be in Vegas for the show and visit them, and I'll be damned if one of them called me apparently from
the booth.  I believe he said you were there when he was calling.  I want to thank you for that.  Just when I think that there's not much hope for the way we operate with each other in this country a guy like you comes along.  You remembered with absolutely no requirement to do so.  Thank you.  I hope your business is very good and that you prosper from it 'cause people who deal that way deserve the best.

As a matter of fact, that same day, I got an e-mail from one of the guys in the engineering/tech. dept. in Mass., and they're sending me out three coils (upgraded from the originals) free of charge that I can solder on these boards and be done with it.  I am just recently online by the way, and now I'm sold.  In addition, the thoughts and jokes section on your site is just great - refreshing.

All the best - and post this as you wish.
