    Uh, yeah. It is a "sticky" thread right at the very top of the DIY sub-forum - numero-uno, so to speak.

    Yup. Gordon's right as always.

    TIA - I've had some that just wouldn't align, no matter what. And, you can try this if you get recones off eBay that rub. Working on sound advice, using MEK I've...

    A "shim" tube is included in the recone kit - it is thin, clear plastic, and helps maintain and protect the coil form. I don't think I could "roll one" that precise! ;)

    I removed the tube as I...

    Sticky: Recone Tome

    Ugh! I considered doing that while reconing a 116H last weekend, but felt I was deluding myself in thinking anyone cared on all this ;)

    There isn't a great deal more to it - the cleaning is the...

    Hey, DavidF...

    No sweat - I queried Giskard prior to posting all this and he agreed this might be a worthwhile effort. It's not hard, just unusual work. I wish I'd had a photo-path before my...

    Sticky: 2245H - an addendum...

    In resurrounding a pair of 2245H's today, it occurred that I had omitted a handy way of appyling the glue bead to the cone, in tight-fitting instances. These instances are when you cannot have the...

    The two completed baskets, hooked-up and running the 30Hz test tone for the entire drying cycle. This is what the drying phase looks like. It's a bit boring, but oh-so-important. Keep that 30Hz...

    Now, its time to put the hard rubber ring into the basket edge. Run a thin bead of glue around the basket (see previous picture) – let dry a bit.

    Ease in the hard rubber ring – note the butt-end...

    Sticky: Step 11

    While you wait for the glue to dry, you can start cleaning the hard rubber ring. You need to scrap off the old glue. This is one of the more time-consuming tasks, and can be sped up with a Dremel,...

    View of the surround and cone edge, with the wet glue. Looking good. The glue dries clear, so it looks even better when dried. Periodically, keep working around the cone edge, one finger behind,...

    For this basket, I resorted to this method of applying the glue – not my favorite nor most common, but the fit was SO good, there was no room for alternatives. I gently pushed open the cone edge,...

    More commonly, you will need to invert the transducer and gently scrap the surround off the cone edge, working steadily around (and around and around…) the woofer. This is tedious, and it’s had to...

    These surrounds were so ready to come off, that I was able to carefully draw the #10 blade toward me, angled into the cone and working around the cone-edge, simply lightly scrap the surround off. A...

    Sticky: Step 3

    Merely trim all around, and carefully remove the bits of old surround – they can be gummy, and even tar like when in the worst state, and will get insoluble black goop on any-and-everything.

    You can see the surround, which “looked” fine, is actually quite decrepit and crumbling. I usually first cut the surround off the basket, and then gently cut it off the cone – knife blade angled in...
