Chorus ii woofer required.

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone - this is my first post.  I hope it's to the right area!
 

I poked a hole in one of my Chorus ii woofers and am looking to replace it.  Can anybody help, please?

 

Best regards,

 

Mark.

Wow.  Thanks for the responses everyone.  This site must have quite a following!  I've included an image.  The cone is now making cracking noises at `moderate' levels.

 

I'm thinking the recone kit is the way.

 

EpicKlipshFan:  thanks for the link.

billybob - thanks for the tip.   I'm actually thinking about something a bit bigger.  Kp450 or larger.  :)

moray james - yeah, I suspected they were the same.  This journey started with me as a 15yr old being amazed by the Chorus 1s.  There's something raw about that vented box. :)

RandyH000 - thanks for the K48 specification and possible source.  I'm toying with building something myself with two or three of these woofers per channel - maybe that's the source for my beast.  

 

Thanks everyone!

ouch!  thats a big hole. yeah i think the recone kit is the best option, replaces the voice coil too. or keep your eye out for a used one but they dont show up too often.  shipping will be about $30 each way so if you are crafty it might be worth a try to do yourself & save $$.

you can repair it if its not too bad... but they make recone kits if it cant be repaired, simply speakers sells the recone kits & will even install them for you for a decent price.

Voice coil is 8 ohm on this recone kit. Please ask for 4 ohm version.

Thanks so much for the feedback everyone.

 

I'm going to tape the cone for now and order the recone kit - after taking the woofer out to double check the resistance.  Thanks for the tips!
