Some tools are both useful and cheap. Nothing wrong with a $1 clamp if it not only does the job but doesn't hurt your feelings when it breaks.


And those will break.



Reminds me of my surround replacement thread.

Lol I couldnt help but think of that thread when I started this project. I think I told you before but I will say it again you did a very nice job on that surround replacement. I remember when I first saw it done I was blown away!

My next woofer project is replacing the cone on my la storm x1, which is very similair to the eclipse Ti. should be interesting. lets just say the cone didnt like it when I fed it 2kw

That gap looks super tight -- 4 layer coil ?

I re-coned an older Atomic motor recently and it had only 0.5mm clearance on both sides of the coil with a 4-layer... silly tight!
