    I have a pair of Infinity Reference 50 loudspeakers that are over 11 years old and the foam surrounds on the bass drive units have finally disintegrated. I contacted the agents for Infinity (Harmen-Kardon) and they say that they no longer manufacture the drive units for this speaker.
    I need to source an equivalent set of drive units that will work in these speakers. Does anyone know if there's anyone in the Bristol area that specializes in speaker drive units ?
    The Infinity speakers are rated at 150W, 8 ohm.
    The bass drive units are 21cm in diameter and the mounting holes are about 20cm across from each other measuring from the centres of the holes. There are 4 mounting holes in total spaced evenly around the drive unit.
    I will appreciate any help in this area....Thanks, Torimusic

    It's not in Bristol but they do mail order.
    Try http://www.wilmslow-audio.co.uk/
    I've sourced a few older drive units from them. They may have an equivalent driver. It might be an idea to remove one of the drivers to see if it has any part numbers or model numbers on it.
    Its worth a phone call.

    Good luck.
