This shouldn't be too hard...I'm thinking you can drill a pilot hole in the middle of the cone and slowly, carefully enlarge it...how depends on the material, I bet it's very thin, I'd try a very sharp exacto or scalpel, that way there won't be any shavings in the VC gap. If you go slowly enough the pressure from the blade shouldn't distort anything...but I'm only guessing at how 'soft' the cone material is.

pretty much the approach i'll start with... once the 1st one is off i'll know if a better approach is worth attempting.

I also have some surgical tools that may work. I often use them for nibbling thin metal, they are very well made and the ergonomics are brilliant, very articulate...as to be expected with surgical equip.
If the surplus shop still has some I'll buy a couple extra pairs to share.

This driver seems to be like the JX92s at 1/10 the price.
Has anyone compared them?

It doesn't have the HF response of the JX92S or the SPL capability but it does make for a very nice personal speaker. I use them for PC speakers.

They seem to have a smooth response. Do they sound much better than tradional paper cones?

I don't believe they are actual aluminum cones in the tradition of Jordan or Bandor, rather they appear to be treated paper very much like the Tangband W3-871S. The coating makes them stiffer while adding little mass which works very well. They don't have the "paper" sound that lesser drivers do.
