Hi i spent weeks buying and trying different materials for the suspension when i finally found the right one its therband gold its an exercise band as well as being the number one choice for slingshot users its expensive but its good quality and more important consistant in its manufacture as its critical the material has consistant thickness as a lot of other makes dont so do not be tempted to get a cheaper type.

Hi Brian

Beautiful work.
Which type of glue did you use to bond the rubber to the mylar?
Do you have resources for the rubber to buy online?
I have an broken Analysis Omega standing here i like to rebuild.

Rob, ok lets see if we can get your omega,s working again .the factory repair cost would i believe be even more expensive than mine due to increased size so lets start with what you need i presume its the suspension thats failed and the membrane itself is ok? to make it easy for you i have found some theraband on dutch ebay its item number 280534761171 12.90 euro thats what you need would help if you can post a picture of your speakers so i can advise you more accurately

Default latest rebuild- progress

Ready to clamp diaphragm, have used about 80 meters of 4.5 mm tape weighs a ton. One row of magnets not needed. The other pictures are my latest rebuilds using the epsilon layout, the blue ones are neos the rest are ferrites. The last picture is my first and only glued one, won't be gluing anymore!! This was my first try.

Hi Brian

I already build a new bas panel without the rubber and that also works but maybe not as good as original.
You forgot to mention the glue.

Rob,i used loctite 406 spread a thin film of it to the edge of the rubber about 6mm wide by applying masking tape first to create a nice straight line of glue sqeeze the glue out along the rubber then immediately spread it out with a scrap piece of rubber so you end up with a narrow film of glue which has dried . remove masking tape then apply contact cement to that and film let that touchdry then join. 3m super 77 can also be used and is less messy instead of regular contact cement but you will need to mask off first.one other option which has proved succesful is after applying the 406 use double sided adhesive tape orofol or 3m i have found work fine.
