Default Dynaudio speaker Recone

Hi
I have a Dynaudio 17W75EXT woofer that needs to be reconed. The voice coil rubs when presed gently in the center of the cone. Although it seems to play well when installed. It is one of the older ones. I have checked wit Madisound and Meniscus Audio and neithr can do the recone. Can any of you Audio grues help me with this.
Thanks,
Gary

HI
Thanks for your reply. My concern is that there may be damage to the driver. I purchased them on ebay and I don't know the history of them. I would like to get the driver repaired. Any help would be certainly appreciated.
Thanks
Gary

It isn't dead yet and it's working normally . You cannot push the cone uniformily with your fingers and so it 'could' scrape. Even if the coil is a bit skewed and has much less clearance on one side BUT plays OK , you should just leave it alone. If you are worried about it dying due to scraping ( later on !) then just use it TILL IT'S DEAD !
Until then stop worrying and enjoy the speakers . Never worry about something you don't know .....that it 'might' have been damaged . If it sounds OK to you it IS OK !

" cross the bridge when you get to it ...huh? "
Cheers.

At the risk of being no help...

The only damage would be to the voice coil. Using it as-is will not cause any damage to any other part of the speaker.

One of my 17w75's also scrubs a little when fiddled with, but sounds fine.

Given the high prices of Dynaudio recones in general, I haven't even checked on repairing this one.

Hi
Thanks for the reply. Mabe I'm just a little too worried about posible failure. It's nice to hear a vote a confidence from a fellow Dynaudio enthusiest. I haven't found anyone yet who can recone the older 17W75EXT's.

Best Regards.
Gary
