OK, I have been waiting for the foam on my subwoofer to get damaged. And today it cracked. It is over 20 years old, so it was expected to happen.
So what do I do now? I have a B460 with the orginal 2245H woofer.
I can refoam it, recone it, or perhaps recone it into another version???
Would the best thing be to recone it, and let it remain a 2245H, or is there any better alternative use of the basket? Could it be turned into for exemple a 2242H?
Suggestios are welcome!

You want 2245H in that cabinet.

Refoam.

Little to lose trying that. If you mess up, recone.

2245 should stay 2245 as it is a superb woofer. Anyway 2242 won't work in that basket.
I would recone it. It shouldn't be too expensive. ~250 Euro I think.

Do NOT re-foam Leif. Re-cone. Talk with Lydrommet. If you want, send me a PM.
