    Hi all,

    I've got an old AKG LSM50 (the one that was based on the even older "Auratone") speaker on my bench, requiring a replacement driver.

    Unfortunately, like the original, it's now obsolete and Harman/AKG can't supply a new driver.

    The driver is actually a Goodmans 0M029, but Goodmans Spares have no record on their systems of ever having made the driver. :roll:

    Does anyone have any idea where I'd be able to get any similar sounding, same-size driver that I could put in this enclosure instead?

    (Or even better, does anyone know where I might still be able to buy a spare AKG/Goodmans cone or even an Auratone one?)

    Thanks in advance,

    I'd contact someone over at Avant Electronics about similar drivers. They make their interpretation of the Auratone which is awesome, but not exact.

    That's all I've got...hope it helps.

    Most company's have updated drivers for their products on their website.

    I would check there first :lol:

    The pro shop at your local golf course should have a good selection of drivers.

    If not, you could try a car hire place that does chauffer rentals.
