    Chad do cloth surrounds ever fail under normal use? Just wondering?

    the only failures I have see are n "doped ones" like Altec/JBL used along time ago. If you rotate the drivers 180 degrees in the enclosure regularly on doped ones they will last longer than you. I ruined 2 altecs because the doping ran and I tore the surrounds removing them from the cab because they were rear-mounted. Broke my little heart.

    Over done a set of Ohm D2? I noticed one of the links you posted has a refoam kit for a 12", although the D2 is a 10"

    OCS gives a guide as to how to measure them. it's going to be outer diameter of foam, outer diameter of roll, inner diameter of roll, inner diameter of foam. then if it's attaching front/back of driver or it it mounts to the driver flat. Not many mount flat.

    Got the surrounds from OCS, started working on them last night. Looks like one of the voice coils might be fubar'd. The cone is seized and looks cocked slightly. Will post pics when I get home.

    What do you use for VC shims? I tried using collar stays, (very thin plastic), but even those were too thick to clear the VC. Are you using paper or something?

    That denatured alcohol works like a charm though. This process is way easier than I thought it would be.

    The seized cone is likely a shifted magnet, bad mojo. Many kits come with paper some come with plastic shims of varying thickness, cut up cheap (not raised letter) business cards work good. I saved all my plastic shims and just use those now. JBL's actually come with a shim that's custom fit and round.
