Anyone have a carbon fiber dust cap for a 10w7? .. Or a better option than fixmyspeaker.com.. since putting an ice scraper thru mine...

It won't feel so bad.. if it ends up as an upgrade lol

...so.. this has been a case of wanting something I don't need and can't afford...... And it costing me way more than planned..

So. Researched all local toronto shops and world wide web.. only one place makes the right size cap for a w7 10.. http://www.fixmyspeaker.com

...it just cost me $98 cdn.. for a plastic disc

...$53 for the surround since it's glued to the disk.. And will get damaged..

And I still need the special polypropylene adhesives..

......fml.. now I gotta do surgery on my 600 "good deal" ..

..after even.. PUTTING A 60$ GRILL..

...this subs voice coil better last forever. . ... ... .... -_-

The hole is near the 7.5 mark.. And I diddnt want a giant 8 inch dome .. im thinkin I might get the cap hydrodiped.. And atleast it.looks like I upgraded it.. and not the truth.. that i mangled a great sub..lol

on ebay from bluehavenct have some 8.75 inch dust cap from alpine and others. or lordofbass as some 200mm dust caps.
even if it s not the original, it should do the trick.

The size of the inside if the foam surround is 7.375".. And 6.75" diameter.. I needed a cap between.. 172mm and 187mm
And the size matters on this damn thing because of the W cone.. the shape of the radius needs to connect ..

A 6.5 inch vs 7 inch vs 7.5... all no guarantee it's gonna contact to the center..

I can't believe it's not a size available for people to upgrade even to carbon fiber..
