–Cabinet Repair (Pro Audio & Home Stereo):
When repairing PA and home stereo cabinets, there is a flat-rate charge depending on the type of cabinet. This rate covers a complete diagnosis of the cabinet including inspection of the woofer(s), tweeter(s), midrange(s), crossover(s), wiring, terminals, and amplifier (when applicable). Following completion of the diagnosis, we prepare a detailed estimate for repair. This flat-rate diagnosis fee is then applied to the total labor charges for the repair.
