usually spacers are pretty easy to remove because builders don't roughen the mounting faces of them.

If the glue is brittle, a chisel will lift it right off.

I've also griped them with a visegrip vertically and just pulled and had them come off easy enough.


for the most part, acetone will make a mess if you don't scrape the surface clean first.

Okay, then lastly, how can i get the last of the spider i cut out, off of the spacer? The glue holding the spscer down is fairly brital, but the glue holding the spiders on to it is crazy hard!

Irwin razor knife. box cutter, utility knife.. Irwin blades are thicker/stronger and sharper than Stanley and other manufacturers.

I use my Irwin knife for things other knives can't do.

another option is a professional (Mac or Snap-on) gasket scraper.. but a gasket scraper is crude and hard to manage in a basket.

I finish landings with a grinder and a flap disc if the knife and acetone isn't enough.

but it must be almost clean or the grinder will just make a noxious mess out of it by burning the plastic/cloth and may gum-up the flap disc.


{I'm more of a sub scrapper than a sub builder. I've built a few but I've tore down about 10 times as many as I've built}

So i feel like im in a particularly peculiar situation.

As you can see in the pictures, there is two kinds of glur holding in the spiders, and spacer. The lighter colored glue on the outside you can kind of chip at, when i pulled the terminals out, they were a threaded pot, and came out what seemed like surprisingly easy, once i got them out, i was able to just chip the glue off of where it was, so i believe that stuff should just break out when i drive a chisel under the spacer.

But the glue that is holding the spiders down is rock hard, and barely even scratches when i dig the corner of a standerd screw driver into it. so that i will battle once i get the spacer out. Due to the design of the basket, there is no venting to the bottom side of the spiders, except for those little holes with the mesh that sandwich up to the magnet when its bolted on. so i have to go through the hole for the voicecoil, and tht being the case, i dont have a long enough tool to get under the spider spacer! So i'll get up some more pictures when i get this bad boy apart.

^i'll definitely give it some heat and see what happens. I've got a couple reasons, in the picture you can see it has notches that stick out all the way around on the spacer, and Diamond Audio used a handful of screws and screwes the spacer to the basket also, and if i can save these i will utilize them, The second reason is because i dont really want to have to spend money i don't absolutley need to. If it wont come out okay, (or even clean up very well) i'll buy new ones.
