Pete B Posted October 19, 2006 Report Share Posted October 19, 2006 I mentioned in this thread below that the New Advent woofers (professionally refoamed) seem to have the rest position of the cone about 1/16" back: http://www.classicspeakerpages.net/dc/dcbo...1356&page=#1356These woofers seem to bottom much more easily than a pair of older Masonite types that were properly refoamed.I have another pair of New Advent woofers that seem to be original and never previously refoamed. I've glued new RSSOUND foam to the cone only and the new edge seems to "find" the correct position on the frame by just falling into place. However, laying a flat edge against the spider I notice that this driver also seems to have the center of the spider about 1/16" in toward the magnet. Considering this further I notice that the foam, while looking wider than the typical .5" wide type, does not look as wide as in this picture:http://www.snappymgr.com/images/items/1413.../14131773-5.jpgThe roll in the picture looks more like a C shape rather than a perfect half circle. I find that if I push down on the center of the not yet fully glued edge to flatten it more like a C shape, the glue edge moves up higher on the frame. It seems that perhaps the edge should be glued about 1/16" higher up on the frame than how it naturally falls. One has to wonder what sort of jigs, if any were used at Advent to do this job.Any thoughts or suggestions before I finish refoaming this woofer?
