Unobtainium. Great little speaker btw.
They were made specially for Proac by SEAS, without knowing the T/S parameters, you’ll never find a sub. You can get the roll surround done if they are still working if that’s all they need.

Cheers George
I owned a pair and georgehifi is correct. I had the surrounds replaced. Usually that is the only thing that would go wrong with them.

have you tried ProAc?

if they don't have them ask them what they recommend to use as a replacement.

George,

The Proac 2 drivers was not made by Seas, it was made by ScanSpeak and a variant of the 18W8543 http://www.scan-speak.dk/datasheet/archive/18w-8543-00.pdf The Proac 1 Drivers was made by Seas and a variant of the P14RCY http://seas.no/images/stories/vintage/pdfdataheet/h0393_p14rcy.pdf

Good Listening

Still unavailable? I got this off the net.
Seas/Scan what’s a "Pickled Herring" between Vikings.

BTW looks like all 2’s surrounds are foam, even when replaced by Proac (linked), but the Seas you link to are rubber.

Yes it is unavailable - Proac should stock them IMO however they may not.  As you state if only the foam surround is shot its easily replaceable.  Bill Legall at Miller sound does an excellent job.

Yes the story about all the Danish Driver manufactures are complicated as they intertwine quite a bit.  Claus Futtrup - now working for Seas has made a nice historic paper on all these intertwines - he himself have worked for DynAudio and ScanSpeak.

I don't think Bill at Miller sound is still doing these.....I heard he retired.....   I hope he didn't because he does great work.........I'm going to call him and see if he can replace the rubber surrounds with foam surrounds.......Will
Bill is still working, used his services last month to reform 4 each SanSpeak 21W8553 the 8 " version of this same driver series with the clear poly cone.  These are available :-)

Good listening
