Faulty Sonab equipment:
In Sweden we recommend: Östermalms Radio och TV-service
Phone: +46 – 8 667 40 60
They are one of very few companies who are able to repair the strange “bass–energizers” used in the OA-6 Typ 2 (Mk II) speakers.
We are unfortunately not familiar with any companies abroad who are able to repair these.
Rubber parts are best purchased at your local industrial dealer.

I just bought a pair of speaker replacements for my OD 12’s and am just now trying to figure out how to replace the bottom woofers on my OA 116’s. I bought all of them from this place. https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/index.php?p=home
