    Is there any difference between the baskets 2240/2241 ? I have one of each and was thinking of reconing them.

    I suspect they are different - when looking for 2245-compatible baskets, the 2240 is generally the only candidate other than the E155

    2240/2241 frames are not interchangeable.

    I have tried all from 40 thru '45 and none *really* has the same intended use. The '43 is a Techno-audience version of the '42 (long throw coil and deepened frame to yield "throw" compansated against getting boring-sounding by a larger magnet)
    For the home, the '40 and '43 are best unless you want "cinema-style" bass at up to medium-high volume when a '45 gives more rumble to bounce your interior decoration about.

    Is it possible to recone 2241 to 2240 using 2240 recone kit ?

    I have a question about the 2243 comment. It reads to me that the 2243 has a deeper pole piece and longer coil than the 2242? My experience shows the motor assembly of the 2242 and 2243 to be identical and the voice coil on the C8R 2243 to be shorter tham the 2242.

    Have I missed something?

    I just reconed a pair of 2242's as 2243's and while we didn't take pictures, the VC in the 2242 was longer (15/16" maybe) and copper clad aluminum, the 2243 looked to be solid copper and maybe 11/16" long. We did not measure the former length. Sorry to stray off topic...

    That was my exact experience as well. I still have a pair of C8R2243 kits.

    Well. If you have 2240 recone kits and 2240 baskets, then the solution is obvious ;-)

    I know it's frustrating, but the answer isn't going to change. You'll need to find another 2240 (not 2241) basket or the only other baskets that will work are 2245 (not 2241) or E155 (not 2241)

    Is there a difference in magnet gap, voicecoil etc ?
