one thing i forgot to mention is basket cleaning. I used a new basket in these so it wasnt needed. But before i recone can be installed the spider landing and surround landing need to be clean. Free of any material or glues and if able to, stripped down to bare metal. You can use a palm sander or angle grinder but be careful not to eat into the basket. It can make the landing un even and it will be worthless.

do you recommend sewing the leads or does it just depend on the application... spl...sq...daily setups?

the whole theory behind sewn leads is a design to reduce or eliminate lead slap on the cone at high excursion. Its entirely up to you if you wanna sew them or not. There's 2 methods. One is sewn with the rolls like as a sundown sa series, or one is sewn on top of the rolls like psi does. Both ways will work but sewn on top seems to be a little more forgiving to the novice.

how do tc sounds do theirs? It looks like melted solder on the spider. Kinda like a printed circuit board. Just based off of looks it would seem they couldn't take big power.

They put the lead between the 2 spider half's and then hot form them together.

Close tommy. we actually talked about this and you were correct. Some companies "adhere" The tinsel to the spider before it is thermoformed. TC on the otherhand has it integrated into the spider or "interwoven" before thermoforming or compression molding. And that was one of tc's weak points was the leads. Not so much how it was done but the insufficient gauge of wire used.
