now, at this point, we have two directions to go in, either a straight recone, or a basket andcone swap for a different sized sub.

either way, the next step should be to take some masking tape (blue painters tape works well, and wont leave behind a sticky residue) to cover the voice coil gap. you DONT want any dust, dirt, metalshavings,etc... to get down inside the gap. or it will take forever to get them out.

i say this, because i FAILED to cover my gap with tape. and when i removed the basket, i stripped the screws and got LOTS of metal shavings inside the gap. it took me over 3 hours to get them all out before we could continue the recone. as those shavings can get caught between the coil andthe pole and lock up the motor.

so, with the gap covered, lets continue.

if you are just doing a recone, you now need to take a dremel tool, with a grinding wheel and grind ALL of the surround AND epoxy off the basket/surround landing. then you need to use the grinding wheel and remove all of the spider and epoxy off the basket/spider landing.

you want a nice clean smooth basket before starting to glue on the new recone.

its also not a bad idea, for the price, to just order a new basket when you order a recone. makes reconing faster, as you can just clean the old basket later.

so anyway, for me, we are using a new basket. so all we need to do is remove the 6 screws holding the basket on the motor, so everything is now separate. motor, basket, old cone.




with everything separate, we now clean up the motor, remove the tape, and get it ready for the new basket.



and now we attach the new basket to the motor with the 6 screws provided with the new basket. get all the screws in by hand, so the basket is on even, then tighten the screws down, going in a criss crossing star pattern, much like you would on a tire, so its tightened down even all the way around.
