    How is the repair performed? I already tried basically doing a recone. I detached the outer rubber surround and shimmed the voice coil and re-glued. It did make it more free-moving however did not resolve the issue.

    that may of actually made to problem worse and may not be able to be repaired now. The problem is the rear magnets glue fails and then seizes the voice coil. The only way to repair is to make a jig and re-glue the magnet back into its proper place. You need an anaerobic type of very thin glue. The glue is very much like red loctite thread lock.
