RCF L18S800 cloth surround not doped after repair?
If you must use them, then I think your proposal to use them as high as possible is sensible.

I would test them thoroughly in the 70+Hz range before going into a commitment such as a gig - as once you start that, you cant stop!!!

I think afa has a point worth thinking over, the OEM kits I have used either came as pretty much drop in, or as with the Beyma kit all the materials and some pretty straight forward instructions.

I didn't understand what exactly did he mean. Dampening edge?
From what i have seen it's dry. It's just pure cloth with nothing on it. When you put your finger on the thing you can feel it has got nothing on.

I will test them as kickers first yes.

EDIT: New reply from RCF. The guy inderstood me wrong. He taught i was talking about the spider and told me that the priginall rcf cloth surround looks different then what he sees in the video. And that's true yes. This one seems to look a bit different.

Yes i will do that toninght when i get to the club just to check.
But take a look at the video again. Take a listen. Hear how the repaired one is more ringy because it has more movement? Event when you are looking at it. It moves more then the reconed one.

one is a treated half roll and the other looks like a 3 pleated accordion edge, both can provide the same result (almost) if treated with the same coating..

That's right. One is a half roll and the other one is shape like the spider looks. It feels nice and sturdy. I think it will be working well after i coat it. I will check tonight to make sure it wasn't coated from the factory and then i'll order the coating material. But damn i'd like to find one that dries black.

you can probably use a water based black acrylic paint as a sealer, it is probably the same composition as the real thing (not school type paint but exterior paint )

Yeah but i'd still like to play safe with the glue that is made for these things. How about spray painting the suspension black and then clearcoating it?
