Default Recone query

Hi guys!

Just a query with my re-cone

Just got my new cones in the mail for the DD 9515D
Stoked as to see them! best packaging I've ever seen. product looks to be of outstanding quality, couldn't be happier

Problem.. or more curiosity i have is the spiders appear to be much wider than stock, They do line up, But just unsure if this is normal?


This is where the new spider sits, on the outer lip
Previous spider used to sit on the sanded area in this image,
Surround allso seems to sit a little high?

Probably isnt an issue, but just to be sure can anyone confirm this is all A-Ok before i start gluing?

Accidentally posted this on the PSI forum first.. That thread can be deleted. Total dumb-ass

Cheers guys,

Looks to me that the surround sits so high because of where the spiders are landing. I think that if you were to put that together, you would have a badly performing sub. Get the right size spiders on there, don't try to grind down the spider landing to make it work( unless you have good milling skills).

That thing is just right. Glue it in. Trust me.

Make sure to clean the top landing, and use the rubber gasket to hold the surround in place while the glue dries.


Use the rubber glue for the surround.

There is no problem with it at all, push 'er down a bit and glue her together buddy. Gaskets help that process for the surround gluing quite well.

Just as the MASTER, Dave, stated above

Say Dave, question for you in regards to a concept as such above:
If a fella' didn't have any gaskets hanging around to get an idea of where the surround should be along the landing precisely (as so many drivers with gaskets when stock, do not have the surround go to the edge, rather they are inset a bit to allow the gasket's topside inner lip), is it okay for a guy to pull the surround out to the edge/lip then glue 'er down pulled to the edge all the way around? Or will/could that decrease the amount of excursion the surround can allow and possibly cause surround failure if the spider pack allows for more? Or are surrounds usually made to handle much more travel than spider packs generally.

Well, ...if you never ever plan to install a gasket, it will be fine. The difference in where the gasket puts the surround versus when it is to the outer edge of the frame is not very much.

She's all together now, i actually found another thread of a 9515C that was identical. so i trusted in that and assembled her last night

I don't have or use the gasket. so i just did the old peg trick all the way around with a pack of clothes pegs. did the job nicely. I did hit the spider landing with a flap disc. got her all nice and shiny before gluing, worked a treat.. besides the shim getting horridly stuck the first time around..

Whats the go with the shim that was in my pack with a few lines of tape across it? i figured it was to make a tighter fitting shim and thought nothing of it.. Right up until the tape let go and grabbed the pole-piece, hours of struggling. eventually i had to disassemble the woofer again to remove it. Luckilly the CA hadnt fully cured so i eventually rescued my precious cone. But what a nightmare. perhaps my own stupidity

Tho its all go now, got a new shim and it went together like clockwork. Blew away my expectations. i knew it'd be better than the stock cone, but f*ck.. it both sounds better. and hits like a tank. On two DD M3's and not a problem. Much respect

I'll be recommending you guys over here in Oz. great stuff
