    Exclamation Warning Replacement MW woofers

    Hey guys I just bought some MW6503 drivers for my project, and the surrounds don't have the notches cut out. When I installed them I tightened them down, and backed off a hair. I wasn't home for a while, and the AC was turned off. Later I was playing some music, and could hear a farting noise. I looked at the drivers and some of them the rubber wrinkled to the point where air could escape. Luckily I turned most of the screws back enough that I didn't have more damage. If you get replacement woofers install the screws most of the way, and take an exacto knife and cut out the rubber that would be under the screws.

    This has always been an issue when putting screws thru rubber surrounds. A little trimming is required, or you stand the chance of twisitng the surround under the screw. A lesson learned from early car audio installs when thin butyl surrounds were the norm, not like the thick stuff of today.

    I was probably busy finishing my speakers, and missed it. I usually check new post. I bought 14 or 16 woofers, and only damaged four.

    I had to trim back some surround from the drivers when I rebuilt my 10A's. I too have twisted many a surround back in the day when in a hurry.
    Patience Pays Off. And thanks for the tips Polk Folks.
