Well, look at that huge Xmax number (in mm). That's essentially half of the travel the cone needs to move (half the voice coil length). Any surround that limits that movement will not make a good substitute.
It should sound like it isn't there!

And from that info a speaker manufacturer will be able to figure out what the surround should be.

The need for these are great - owners in need of replacement surrounds could sure breath easier if surrounds were available over the high cost of new Drivers. I hope this issue ever gets solved.

$60.00 is not even close to high priced for a woofer. Just saying.

True but there prices go from there to $90 and $90 x 8 is high and that is when they have them. I waited almost a year for them to get more in (CRAZY). On my budget $430 was a lot to replace all 8 woofers and I got them cheap!

Sad thing is the woofers are fine - they just need new surrounds and the Original woofers were better made at least I think they were not sure what others opinions would be.

Still I know what your saying and for these Speakers it is worth it!

I bet this is why I have blown so many fuses on my first pair over the years. The foam I had a local shop put on is closer to rubber egg carton than soft glove. It got them working, but at a stress price.
