    I have an old set of advent floor standing speakers, and I blew the woofer in one of them. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good replacement for me. I love the cabinets and would just like to replace the woofer. Below is a link to the speakers that I have. http://fisherdoctor.com/nadvent.html

    Is the woofer "blown" or do you really mean the woofer surround is falling apart. Unless you were trying to recreate a concert...it is hard to blow them to smithereens.

    If you do mean you blew it, this is the first thing that comes up when you search Advent Large Woofer http://www.simplyspeakers.com/advent-replacement-woofer-p001-31858.html

    Thanks for the help! It turns out I will just need to re-foam the speaker. Thanks again!

    No problem...should probably do both...common issue on those. I've resurrected many Large Advent from "the dead"... I think I even have a set in storage.
