Without getting into details, I purchased a pair of BL 3500's that were damaged during shipment, damaged further when returned and denied coverage from Fedex due to packaging.  Needless to say, I ended up with the speakers back, due to timeframe issues on placing a paypal claim, etc. etc/.

Aside from some surface damae, the main issue was one woofer mouting frame/legs having broken in the initial shipment.  Well, upon returning it in the same packaging in which I received it, now 3 of the woofers are shot: broken mouting frames and 2 of them completely ripped off @ the surround.

So, I will need a minimum of 1 woofer to replace and get one speaker functioning

1. Does anyone have any soares?

2. If not, is there a 3rd party supplier that has them, or has anyone replaced with a suitable alternate?

stamped on the back of the woofers: 8480244

Manuals available on the site here indicate that the part # is 8480259

Any help would be appreciated!

My BL3500 just got 2 new woofers. They are not too expensive, and I could replace them by myself without taking the speaker off the wall...

Stefan:

I am in my office right now, so I do not have the woofers in front of me for reference: The serial number printed on the back of the magnets do not match that which was listed in the service manual PDF that is available on the site here.  Would you kindly let me know if you replaced yours with the same woofer number, or was there a superceded, or new part #?

I will post the numbers I have when I get home later
