RE: Recone alternatives for Yamaha/Eminence JAY6130 basket

I'll just say that the recone jobs I've seen/heard others use tended to not last very well - rubbing, coming unglued, that sort of thing. A couple years ago, I put new neoprene surrounds on a pair of Dynaudio 8" that had deteriorated foam surrounds, mostly because I couldn't bring myself to throw out the drivers and replace them - they're expensive drivers. I'm tellin' ya what, that was a royal pain in the butt, between cleaning the basket rim, getting the new surrounds perfectly centered, etc. It was a two day ordeal.

Fortunately, I was meticulous, used the proper type of glue for polypropylene/neoprene to metal, etc., etc.

Never again.

I'm just sayin'.
