Monitor 10 gasket

Getting ready to mod a pair of Monitor 10s, and noticed that one of these is not like the others. There is no trace of the fourth gasket.

I guess weather-stripping or some other foam tape is the best replacement. Does Polk offer an OEM gasket replacement?

    Not unless you buy a new driver. In your case some Armacell or the like will get the job done.

    Thanks, Jesse. Will search out Armacell or equivalent. Interesting how the problem-child driver has the extra stickers on it :/

    This will be my second pair of M10 upgrades. Looking forward to getting them back into circulation for another couple of decades.

    I can't read the stickers, what do they say?

    This is the odd one. Check it out...kpvay7ztakfh.jpg
    The other three only have the one big circular sticker.

    Is 12771 the serial number on one of your speakers?

    Don't think so. Sticker numbers on the back-side of the xover plates are 96XXX and 99XXX.

    Which Armacell is recommended. All I have found is rather thick. Is there a thin Armacell?

    Look for Armacell tape. I'm seeing some on Amazon that is 1/8in (3mm) thick. It's 2in wide, so will have to be cut lengthwise. Hopefully 30ft will be enough...good grief. Maybe we should do a group buy :D

    Ok, I guess I was looking at weather stripping. I'll check plumbing.
