Hi guys,

I bought these TMS2ish copies a few years ago, for copies they do sound great. Recently during transport one has suffered some damage to the phase plug, which seems to be made of some kind of foam/styrofoam. I haven’t got much experience in speaker building, does anyone know wether this could be patched?

Cant see the photo but its probably rigid polyurethane foam (PUR) ,  i cant see the damage but pu glue like gorilla glue sticks well, then car body filler then sand and paint.

Those look like genuine waveguides (early fibreglass ones) that have been put into some DIY cabinets.

Car body repair shop should be able to sort that out or if you have a boat repair shop then they would be all over that
