You can find refoaming kits at www.simplyspeakers.com
They have Jensen's size foam rings
I successfully revived a pair of Jensen Model 6 recently for 80$
All the best

Re: Jensen Model 5 Speaker System

I have an old pair of Jensen Model 5 speakers that need to have the Woofers replaced or the foam surrounds repaired. Can someone tell me a good replacement speaker to use to replace the 12" woofers? I would ideally like to have them drop right in with the same bolt pattern but I know that probably wont happen. If I have to surrounds repaired/replaced to use the original speakers what would be the approximate cost for that?

Thanks much for any help


Re: Jensen Model 5 Speaker System

I Recommend a rebuild of your originals, you'll never get that same vintage sound without them. Remember, Jensen took alot of care in designing a matched set of drivers for those well-crafted enclosures. A whoofer with different design parameters will make your system sound off balance.

At your local speaker shop or audio supply house you can find re-cone kits, and possibly foam surrounds by themselves. But first, go to youtube.com and search for 'JBL Re-Cone'. This should lead you to many a video fully explaining how to do it yourself on quality 12" whoofers. That should be cheap enough for ya. Check it out.
