Default Speaker foam padding

The speaker foam padding on my Dynatron speakers has self destructed and become dust so that now the cloth just hangs there. What should I use to repad them please?
Thanks
Steve

Hi Steve

I'm a bit late in responding but can you clarify the location of the speaker foam padding on your Dynatron speakers that needs to be replaced - a photo would help.

I'm sure Steve will clarify but I believe he is talking about the foam that is stuck to the front of the baffle over which the front cloth is stretched. This does have a habit of turning to dust over time.

I can just see a LARGE lump of square foam as the suspension for the cone!

Pictures please

hi yes Electronpushero is correct its the foam between the baffle board and the cloth covering the front of the speaker cabinet.

I've always found Wilmslow Audio to be good value and excellent quality.
