Some translation may be required (assuming the
lingo is the same across India) -

T-Nut - the local shop calls it a Tiger nut
Threaded insert - they call it a D-type nut

If you want 6mm ones, PM me and I'll mail them out to you.

My drivers were new in the box, and a adhesive-backed
closed cell foam gasket was included in the box.

Check around with car audio guys if they sell
speaker gasketing tape. Looks like this -

Amazon.com: Speaker Gasketing Tape 1/8" x 1/2" x 50 ft. Roll: Electronics

Worst case, you can probably make a gasket out of
the white closed cell foam cloth which most
electronic gadgets are packaged with (LCD monitor/TV, for ex).

How wide was the sticky gasket -- or was it a strip?

Here i get FE167 and FE207 with really nice special made gaskets. FE166 & FE206 come with a thin strip of weather seal (draught exclusion tape). I always substitue a wider tape of the same sort. I use neoprene (black) closed cel faom tape used by the building indutry to seal the openings of doors & windows... here mostly to keep the heat in on cold days, but equally usful keeping the heat out in places where it gets hot.

Homedepot.ca - Search - foam - Building Supplies,Indoor Living,Outdoor Living,Tools & Hardware,Value Centre,LePage,TAGO,TUNDRA,MONO,GE Silicone,Goop,Nailtite

I note that Home Despot calls it foam tape... as per mymindinsides's earlier post, maybe we should start a wiki page with the various names that are used to describe the same thing, to make it easier for people to hunt things down.

Yes that is the factory gasket. I still haven't found a good use for them.
