REPAIRER/TWEAKER DETAILS LIST....
« on: April 14, 2012, 12:49:39 PM »
I have noticed, as I am certain have many other forumites,  an increase in for example, blown/damaged tweeters, amps that need to be repaired, etc...  Should we not have a section where the most popular repairers/tweakers contact details such as their names, area, telephone numbers(?), etc can be found, for easy reference?

For example : Speaker repairs/tweeter re-coiling(?)- Cape Town : Resonant Frequency (Rian) Tel : 021 - 919 6073; Jhb...........details ; Durban.................and so on....
                       Amps - Ampdog (?), etc....

Most of these guys info is common knowledge and the same enquiries just gets regurgitated each time.

Feel free to delete this post ...

Would it not be better to have all information in the first post?
So if details need to be added / removed then the person sends the mods a pm and they edit the post?

In which case this thread may as well be locked.

Why don't we just have a dedicated section for repairers, tweakers, amp builders etc, like we do for members of the trade, where the guys who ply their trade can post their contact details with a description of what they offer.

This will make it much easier for the newbies to find them!

Does anyone know where I can repair my power amp in the Pretoria area.

I have a Rotel power amp which creates a funny sound as soon as it is connected to the speakers and in the process it damages the speakers.
The last I connected it I saw smoke & a burning smell coming from the speaker and the bass driver was damaged.

Hey all,

Can anyone tell me if there is a reputable speaker repair person in the Durban area. Have a pair of Mission M33i and one driver is making a scratchy sound as if somethhing is loose. I havent stripped it yet to have a look either. Not sure what I would need to look for though.

Clearly we had more to drink that night than I origonally thought :whistler:

@scottl1976
Try Burton at the Repair Shaq- 031 3372177
Above Tiger Wheel and Tyre near the ICC. Nothing fancy but he repaired my B&W sub just fine (I still must take him up on his offer to fit a bigger power supply for R500).
