    Default Repair question on LS90's

    I just purchased a set of used LS90's and they were sent to me by UPS. Unfortunately one of the speaker cabinets were damaged. One of the top-rear corners is smashed in about 1 inch:(

    I now am in the process of filing a claim with UPS and part of their requirements is to get a repair estimate.

    So, my question is this: How do I go about getting a repair estimate for a vintage speaker box?

    It would be ideal if I could get someone at Polk Audio to give an estimate so that the UPS insurance company will pay what is fair.

    Can you guys recommend a repair shop that would have the ability to restore the cabinet?

    Realistically, I plan to live with the damage and take the money to offset the current resale value.......I just need a legitamate estimate to give the insurance company.

    Post a pic and PM Jesse (AKA "F1nut"). Antique restoration is what feeds both him and his audio appetite...

    I'm sure he'll send you a good estimate....
