    JBL doesn't actually provide surrounds, the proper technique is to do a recone - but ... considering the much higher costs of reconing, surrounds happen.
    I redid the surround on my 2235 (15 inch woofer) last year and had fine luck ... have you searched the site here to see how others have replaced the surround on their woofers?

    Here's one thread - http://audioheritage.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=469

    A couple of different vendors sell "surrounds" on ebay. Some ebay vendors sell good parts and stand by their sales, others may be questionable at best ...

    You can't go wrong if you use surround material from Rick Cobb. He seems to respond well to email: rcobb@tampabay.rr.com

    His Ebay ID is: looneytune2001

    There are no recone kits for those drivers. If they go you replace the driver.
