Replacing dead woofer on ProAc Tablette Sig 50 (NYC area)?

I have a pair of ProAc Tablette Signature 50s; one of the woofers is dead. I brought it to a local guy in NYC, who seems knowledgeable but is apparently not some famous high-end guru; he says that the woofer needs to be replaced, but he doesn't have access to one that will fit.

I've messaged ProAc, who haven't replied in a few days, and I'm just trying to get a sense of what my options are. I've always liked these speakers, and I would like them to work, but if it's going to be a years-long effort of finding the right person somewhere in the world to fix these, I'll just have to toss them and find another pair of something. 

Is finding a replacement woofer easier than this guy thinks? Or is there somewhere I should be taking them to in the NYC area who'd be able to fix this? Obviously, I am myself extremely unsavvy, technically, but I'd hope that these are both repairable and worth repairing.


So if you can get a couple woofers shipped from Toronto, who cares if they come from Toronto?

@yogiboy is correct call audioconnect. They are in NJ and are a dealer. 

the ProAC site list dealers but in the  US distributor ‘is the sound org’.  I just bought ProAcs - waiting for them to arrive but the service has been great so far.

I would take out the dead woofer, look at the brand serial number, and order a replacement - if still available. Otherwise I will match the specs and order another similar pair.

OP here, finally following up on this. I've spent a lot of time talking to people, all of whom were very nice and generous with their time, but I seem to be at a dead end.

ProAc confirmed that the original woofer was the SEAS HO803-08, but that they don't have any spare parts for this. I've spoken with new and old SEAS dealers who also don't have a replacement (indeed, though ProAc was very specific about the model number, I can't find any evidence for it anywhere).

I spoke with the Sound Organization, the US distributor, who also don't have any replacements. They said that simply dropping in a similar-size woofer would be a bad idea, due to issues with how specifically the originals were designed. They recommended a few different repair or re-coning shops, none of whom were able to help. Madisound were unable to help, and I spoke with a few dealers (including the NJ and the Toronto ones) who also didn't have any ideas.

I think I've done all I can do, and as this particular line of inquiry is unpleasantly stressful for me, I think it's time to throw in the towel. I'd welcome advice about how to get rid of these—perhaps someone is more patient than I am, or needs just one perfect speaker, or needs parts.... Getting some money would be nice, or I could just give them away.

Thanks for sticking with this!



If you want to send my the good driver, I'll run full curves and specs and then help you find a proper replacement. I am in the St. Louis area.
