Does anyone have a 2245 laying around that can measure the width of the magnet/motor structure for me? I can't seem to find it anywhere online. I have the mounting depth, cutout diameter, etc. but need to know the width of the motor. Thanks in advance!

About 8 5/16" best I can tell, that's without the rubber donut on that magnet.

There was a 2240 empty frame on eBay a day or 2 ago. Get that and send it to Edgewound.

I'm relatively new here, and not super familiar with the 18" drivers. Are the 2240, 2241, 2242 and 2245 all based on the same motor and basket? Is Edgewound a member here, or a shop? Do they do OEM recones or aftermarket? I've heard the aftermarkets have different sound characteristics, and would like it to sound/perform like the original.

2240 and 2245 are the similar cores (E155 too, IIRC ...?)

yes. http://www.uplandloudspeaker.com/

You would want to specify. They take pride in their work and it shows.
Consider this an endorsement from a happy customer.

Then you've come to the right place :)

Can anyone get me the same measurement (motor width) for the 2241? Without the rubber boot, preferably. Thanks!

Very helpful. The traditional T/S parameters/spec sheet comes up first in a google search, but neither of those seemed to come up. Thanks again guys.
