    Default Replacing Speaker Cone - Tools Needed?

    I am going to be replacing a damaged mid-range cone in my RTi A9.

    The heads on the bolts holding the units in do not seem to be Hex wrench compatible,
    as I thought.

    How do I remove the bolts?

    And will I need other tools to complete the job? (other than normal screwdrivers and such).

    should be 9/32 hex/allen key/wrench

    Actually, it needed a Star T20 head to turn the bolts.

    (9/32 is way too big; it looked like a much smaller hex, at first glance.)

    The bolts came out easily, the units were easily unfastened from the clips on the wires.

    I had to line up the surround with the unit (not a big deal, some balancing involved).

    The new mid-range is in , and sounding fine.

    My bad it was off the top of my head... turns out that is the drill bit size I used on another project
    I did not know that they used torx head stuff. Most i have seen was small allen key.
    Glad you got it.
