Does anyone have any recommendations for getting a loudspeaker crossover serviced in the UK in the Midlands, please?

In the past I would have suggested the Meridian Repair Shop, but as Chris is now shutting up shop.

Asking for a friend! But expecting I will need this at some point too ..

Thanks

Loudspeaker crossovers from better manufacturers of speakers are normally very, very durable. They use good quality capacitors (the inductors are truly very passive components and do not age) which are not subject to any great stress and although dielectrics can age you would be unlucky to have that problem. Incidentally, I have some 65 year old audio equipment that is on its original electrolytics even though they were designed to last only 10 years!

Why does your friend think the crossovers need attention?

Good question. As you say, L and R are not going to age. I don't know how he came to this conclusion - I'll ping him and ask.
