Hi Erik,
Thankyou for the quick respond.
The rubber foam is in fit condition, no rot, no tears, very good condition.
The cone is in ok condition too, dust cap is ok too.
Problem comes from voice coil, i think.
It produces constant rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrtttttttt voice along with music being played.
Any tips to solve this, Erik ?
Thank you

Do you need to recone or refoam? :) Is the cone itself damaged, or is the rubber/foam around them rotting?

Hi,

Reconing as an option only exists for professional drivers.

Try rotating the driver 180 degrees and leaving it for a while. *

If that doesn't work you pretty much stuffed for hifi drivers.

Rebuilds cost more than the drivers except when they are rare.

rgds, sreten.

* Alternatively prod the surround to see if it makes any
difference. The best point of prodding goes at the top,
if prodding is pushing the cone, bottom if pulling.

Hi sreten,
A-ha... i never thought of that.
I will try this, thank you very much.
So far, all i could try was by pushing around the dust cap with three fingers.
It helped but sometimes i could hear faint rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrttttttttttttt (at early attempt).
Then the noise was gone after lots of repeated 3 fingers pushings.
But i could feel something behind the cone was rubbing back to back just very thin rubs.
