    Old foam surround just fall apart and disintegrate after a while. No sense replacing them before that.
    Older Cerwin Vega speakers are especially prone to this:

    So unless yours are starting to fall apart, don't bother.

    I have re-foamed several Cerwin vega speakers and there were no noticeable difference in sound that I could notice.

    It depends on the materials they were made out of originally. I've seen some speakers kick around for a long time and never have any issues, while others have went out in just over 5 years.
