Step by Step guide for replacing an old foam resurround for a JBL L40 bookshelf speaker

The JBL L40s are excellent speakers and I would pick them up if you happen to find them at a garage sale. The one problem with these speakers is that the foam surrounding the speaker cones will most likely be crumbling apart due to age.
Luckily, it is an easy fix. With a new set of foam surrounds and a bit of patience you can have these speakers booming in no time!
