I picked up a set of beat up L45 Flairs, I have enough projects already and wasn't looking for another. They only wanted $10 for the pair and the cabinets were bad enough I was pretty sure I wasn't going to be temped to restore them. Just save them from the trash bin.
They have the standard load with the 135A woofers. One woofer just needs a bit of cleaning on the cone and a new surround. The other had the surround rot patched with what looks to be caulk. The caulk for the most part is only on the surround, there are a few places were it goes on to the cone an 1/4 inch or so. What would I use for cleaning the cones? My guess is that the caulk is old and rubbing alcohol might loosing it up. Would that hurt the aquaplas cone?
I have successfully done new surrounds on 6 different 12" JBL woofers and I didn't have to remove the dust caps on them? Is it recommended to use shims on these 135A woofers?
I'm most likely not keep them, Would it be better just to sell them as is?
Thant in advance-
