    Anyone know the cost of a replacement driver for an swr goliath III 10" speaker off the top of their head? Thanks, Alan

    replacement? no. does SWR still do recones? they should. when i had my goliath one reconed it was 50 bucks a pop but thaqt was done by eden. right now eden will recone those same drivers for 65 bucks which includes shipping back to you.

    now the goliath 3 (and 2) don't have eden drivers, i was just using that as a competitors price to recone. i cant imagine it being too much more than that.

    I don't need a re-cone. I have 4 nearly new drivers to sell, and am just trying to find what a ballpark on them is so I don't price them ridiculously:)
    $50 for a re-cone...maybe $50 a driver is fair then...

    I have two Goliath Jr's. Last year I put new SWR PAS 10's in one. Waited about 4 months to get them from SWR. $130 a piece. :eek:
    The other one I had the speakers reconed for $70 a piece. Hope that helps.

    I'd start out at $75 each and see what happens.

    I called swr customer service, and they said retail is $150 per...:0
    I'm real sure I can sell them for a lot less than that. You know where to look for them soon. Not the 'bay...
