The ARP 2600 internal speakers are prone to breakage even when not in use or in storage. Since the speakers are 40 ohms, they are not obtainable my normal means.
In 2018, we had a sizable run of parts made to repair these speakers. Now, we are offering this service to the public.
This listing is to repair BOTH speakers in your ARP 2600. It’s important to do both and not just one, else the unit will sound out of balance simply because one will be old and one will be renewed. Once you purchase this listing, you must mail your speakers to our address in Burbank, CA. Once received, we will have the speakers repaired by a seasoned speaker pro and send them back to you, usually within 25 business days.
We can service your entire 2600 as well, please message us if that’s what you would like. However, for the purpose of this listing, we assume you or your technician are competent enough to remove the speakers safely. No removal or installation directions are provided from us.
You will receive the same speakers you sent to us however with a new voice coil as well as the speaker being re-coned. The results will astound you, and bring purpose to the internal speakers you may previously found to be sort of a gimmick.
Be wary of cheaper options to replace your original 1970’s speakers with c̶l̶o̶n̶e̶s̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶u̶n̶k̶n̶o̶w̶n̶ ̶q̶u̶a̶l̶i̶t̶y̶ “clones” that aren’t even the same shape and come with warped 3D printed mounts.
When it comes to priceless vintage synths, authenticity is key, and repairing your original speakers is the most authentic way to preserve the authenticity of your vintage ARP 2600.
This service also includes repair of maligned magnets when needed at no additional charge.
Please note; this is a specialized service and something we have kept only for our own ARP 2600 customers who are having their synthesizers serviced through us, until now. If patience is not a virtue for you please seek assistance elsewhere and good luck.
