Stupid question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by biggs1249, Apr 21, 2009.

  1. So I just got 2 Delta 10s. There is this loose rubber around the magnet of the speakers. I want to take these off before I install them, right? I would think that they would rattle around if i don't....

    they would probably rattle a little.
    i wouldnt take them off necessarily.
    replace or repair for sure though.

    I wouldn't go taking stuff off speakers until you're dead sure it doesn't need to be there. Could be necessary to the operation.
  4. Its not attached in anyway. Its just on there. Anyone know what I'm talking about? its the same on both of them so I don't think that there is something wrong with it. I assume its something for shipping. Not so?

    Oh, well if it's just dangling there, then I guess it's OK to take off. I have no idea how they're packed, honestly. But I'd hate to hear one of the speaker experts come on here in the morning and say how necessary it is and how your speakers are ruined ;)

    People shouldn't leave loose rubbers laying around :)
  8. Yeah... a pic would certainly be very helpful about now....

    If its for the same reason they do it on car woofers it's to protect the magnet and to keep it from interfering with other magnets close to it
    leave it on there it wont hurt anything or rattle
  10. I left them on and just finished putting all the screws back in. I'll post a pic later.
