Gentlemen,

I got a pair of these BNS 242 speakers for free the other day.

Not sure if the woofers worth to be repairable, I'd rather go for a pair of new 8" woofers, but............. ???

The tweeters are still brilliant!

I saw this 8" Carbon Fiber Die-Cast woofer and it seems to fit perfectly where the old woofer is now.

Any other suggestions? Many thanks.

Ok, back to this project. The rings replacement were ordered. Foam rings as the originals were.

The only problem is how to remove the old mix of old foam+glue shown below.
Tried started with one, pretty sticky. I don't want to ruin the already stressed cone paper.

Plus, what kind of glue goes here and any tip on how to hold the new ring until completely glued to the frame.
