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.
