    2- 10" Eminence drivers from my LDS cab. When Don built my 2nd cab in 2007 he asked that I bring in the first so he could match them up.

    He stated that the speakers wear starting to tear. I never really noticed any difference and kept bangin' away getting good tone & no flappin'.

    I have finally viewed these speakers up close & by golly, they have tears in them. So, I've ordered replacements.

    My friend wants the hellish magnets out of the old drivers...but, would it make sense to re-cone-rebuild them?

    Can they be remade to be just like what I am replacing? Or do they go into the recycling bin?

    A good recone job is essentially a brand new speaker. All the moving parts are replaced, recycling the magnet and frame only.

    I noticed those are aftermarket kits. The ones you want are the genuine OEM Eminence.
