Guitar speakers are a specialty, as are Infinity Kappa Polydome rebuilds. For a list of speaker brands we service, please click here.

Concerned about high shipping costs?
A problem we're experiencing these days is “dimensional-weight” as charged by UPS/FedEx. Beginning in 2015, the dimensional weight rules changed for both FedEx and UPS. For any package that stays on the ground, dimensional weight is triggered if the package is over 3 cubic feet, or 5,184 cubic inches.
For example, let's say you plan on using a box with dimensions 24" x 24" x 20". To determine the dimensional weight, divide the total cubic dimensions by 166. So in this case, the dimensional weight is 11,520 / 166 = 69.4 lbs. What this simply means is that if you were to ship this box, you'd be billed at a minimum of 70 lbs, (the carrier will round up to the nearest pound). If the package were to weigh more than 70 lbs, you'd be billed for the actual shipping weight. But if the actual weight is less than 70 lbs – for example, let’s say it’s 37 lbs – then the dimensional weight would apply and you'd be billed at 70 lbs!
To add to the complexity, if your package is being shipped via air or internationally, then the divisor is 139 instead of 166, which basically means that the dimensional weight is greater when shipping via air.
Do your best to pack small and pack tight.
