Model A recone challenge


Recommended Posts

Attached is a blog document account of a recent Model A woofer recone job. The woofer was made by RCF, an Italian mfg. (Model L12P48).

The challenge was to salvage the original cone, install a new surround, VC and spider and properly position and align the VC without shimming it.

The document speaks for itself.

I know this thread is old but several years ago but I thought I might be able to help someone else.

I had a woofer rebuilt saving the frame & cone by Gabriel Sound in Pompton Lakes NJ. They were the RCF distributor at the time.

They replaced the spider and the surround. The spider was sagging and the surround foam had torn.
