Default so this is what I found.....

I lost the pay pal claim against the guy who sold these subs to me. I need to vent a little so I too them apart ( just one at this time) and this is what I found





coil rubbing on pole alittle ..... user error ? I never powered them




WTF !!! THATS A TOOTHPICK YEP A TOOTHPICK


the top plate was not glued so it pinched the coil. so I am waiting on responses on info about reconing them, kinda broke so might atempt a recone my self I always wanted to.

few quesstions

can I machine out the top plate to get a thicker 3" coil in it ?

what glue should I use for the top plate ? (I am going to make a few shims at work to center it.

is the pole spose to float free or be glued to ?

would centering the pole and screwing it to the botom plate be ok ?



fyi

I build cnc machines so I am not taking a grinder to the plates to work them . it would all be done on a CNC

When I first saw these pictures in your other thread, I could clearly tell they were related to shipping damage and just as I expected the top plate had shifted (hence why the coil was pinched in the gap). Yes, the top plate is snappiest to be glued into place and probably was but during shipping it probably got knocked around. Some companies use very cheap glue, so it happens easier on some subs (like the 02-03 RE XXX). Dave aka TeamPSI can reset and glue the top plate but you got to decide if the motor is worth it because IIRC its around $50. FI Car Audio did a top plate on a RE XXX for me a few years back, and the mentioned it was pretty common with those subs due to the cheap Chinese glue they used.

ye I dont know what to do at this point, I got worthless subs

I messaged psi and he said he can recone them, but for what I got in to these and what the recone will cost (not including this top plate issue), Im not sure what to do

might try a recone my self, got the info out to a few people for soft parts, well see what happens, always wanted to build a sub LOL

I agree it sucks man. With the state they are in, it could get costly. $100 + for recone, $50 for the motor realignment, and probably around $60 in shipping to him and back. So your looking at like $210 + you original investment.

I just recognized the pole piece. I have two already being made into a set of 10's.

Thanks though. Good luck with whatever you do with them.
