I used to have Aluminium dust caps on the drivers of my Sunn 610 and they would crack all of the time.
I had them reconed like 4 times and before a year was out they would start to crack again.

Terrible noises came from them and I would have to carefully tear them off.

The last time I had reconed those old frames I had paper dust caps installed and I enjoyed them for years until there final demise.


P.S By the way nice repair job!!!!
I use superglue or epoxy for repair depending on what they are, and I have found flowable silicone for windshield repairs works great for foam surround repairs as well.

Hey thanks Gerald, I appreciate that!

It did indeed sound horrible with the little tear in the original aluminum cap. When I heard that noise, I was convinced that it was the voice coil rubbing inside and tearing itself to pieces; that was a few years ago and I pretty much gave it up as a lost cause.

I fired the speaker up earlier this evening to test, connected to a Stromberg-Carlson AU-34 PA amp, and it sounded GREAT! No more horrible noise; it sounded just like a speaker should.
