Default build log - new life for a "dead" Memphis SHP15

I bought a "blown" Memphis SHP15 for the motor. {I figured I would scrap the rest}
When it arrived, I found the coil still in near perfect condition and what had failed was the tinsel leads. one lead on each coil had burned & broke and burned the top spider where it broke .. [not for any other reason than the leads were tiny. (never were large enough for the power the rest of the sub was designed to take)]

I cut the tinsel leads from the binding posts and then split the lower hard-board spider spacer and pealed the rubber surround from the landing. {OEM used RTV glue for the rubber surround so pealing was fairly easy} this yielded a reusable recone assembly.. all I needed to do was remove the dust cap and the ends of the OE leads and access the coil wires (through the glue) then de-solder and remove the OE leads from the coil wires.. then find suitable leads and heat shrink them.. then drill holes for the leads through the cone.. then solder the leads to the coil wires.. then secure the lead connections with Goop.. then packing tape the leads to the underside of the cone and Goop them where they came out so they "want" to hang the way they need to... then add RTV to the spider across the areas where the OE leads were to bridge the burned area so it doesn't rip more or make noise. [RTV is flexible and has many good uses]... I had placed the dustcap over the gap to protect it from light debris.. but needed more to protect the gap from debris of cleaning the surround landing.. so I used packing tape over thespider landing. {I didn't remove the dust cap.. just taped it in.. cuz I could} I then cleaned the surround landing with a utility knife {removed the OE RTV glue but not the OE powder coat}. I did not clean the spider landing because the bottom half of the OE spider spacer was still OE glued down and I just needed to glue the spider spacer back together. Being that this sub's spider spacers are paper based "hard board", I could have glued them with any good glue such as Elmers wood glue or Tightbond II.. but I chose Gorilla Glue because of my experiences with it. (I'm still healing from gluing my shirt to my elbow.. man ripping my skin off stung pretty bad)

I used more than twice the RTV on the surround compared to OEM.. and plenty of Gorilla Glue for the spider spacer.. and RTV for the dust cap when it was all said-and-done. It's a damn nice sub. [now]

notes;
desoldering the OE leads from the coil wires was a chore since they twisted the coil wires around the leads where they soldered them and then glued them down

I shimmed the assembly with stiff paper for proper alignment.. I set the dust cap on over the shims for the clamped picture and to protect the gap until the shims could be removed and the cap could be glued on.

heatshrink on the new leads helps them for flexibility and keeps them from fraying in the future.

the picture of the bare new lead has a small piece of the OE lead next to it... OE was tiny junk.

Soldering the new leads to the binding posts was a pain since the original set up had the tiny leads laid in a groove in the top of the stud and barely soldered on. this was not an option for the new leads... so I soldered them next to the posts and then lashed them with copper strand and soldered them again. This is not quite "pretty" but makes sure the solder will not break. {the last picture is a paint drawing to show what I mean by "lash" with copper strand}
