Woofer Problems

I have a 16-year old pair of Goetz MS3 speakers, which have a 15" woofer. I just took the grills off for the first time in months and noticed the rubber-like edge around the subwoofer has just crumbled! . . . on both woofers (altho one was way worse that the other.) Do I need to replace the subwoofers or can they be re-coned? Do reconed speakers perform equivalently to new ones? Any recommendations for companies that do this kind of work? Any responses to my email address (markwhite02@home.com) would be appreciated. Thanks, Mark
I had two sets of 10"speakers re-coned with foam by Van L Speakerworks last year and found that the bass was tighter and faster.
Check around, there are many companies that do re-foams of the surrounds. Check with a couple high end audio dealers near you. Better than replacing the woofers with different kind, which would probably change the sound of your speakers. (Maybe better ?? but who knows?)
