What leads you to make such a bold statement so confidently ? What variables/constants are you citing that would prohibit the thing from "spec-ing" ? These MWs are not rocket engines, they were assembled haphazardly, they can be reassembled with as much or more care than than was originally devoted to them. IMO. I truly wonder just how much "spec" uniformity ever existed within the various iterations of these drivers. A little more attention might have been better paid to the adhesive "spec" aspect............:rolleyes:

Because we did the same thing at Polk and tested them....is that enough to make a general statement. Good lordd, sorry the opinion only matters if it's glowing and waving a flag. As I said, if that doesn't matter, inherently meaning if it sounds good who cares, then it doesn't matter. Where's the factual basis for your BOLD statement concerning the build and manufacture of these drivers? Have you seen the process, seen the factory, been involved in some behind the scenes testing no one is aware of? Certainly let me know since this would be intriguing.
This isn't the first time this has been done, first time its been successful or lack thereof. It's not a rocket that's for sure but it's also not easy to do this in the first place. The fact that Saftgeek took the time to keep trying is AWESOME but I wouldn't have wasted the time personally....its simply not worth it to me. Is that ok?

Well my question was genuine as I also have a driver that's frozen and wanted to know if it really alters spec that prohibits the driver to sound as designed, it may not be worth.
As you mentioned, I've seen many threads here and at Audiokarma where many have fixed magnet shifts using the DIY jig.
$50 replacement may not be much but if the driver is fixable, why trash it unless it changes the speaker's original sound/spec?

when these drivers are built are the magnets magnetized after they are glued? Reason i ask is that i can see were flux or whatever can get eschewed when trying to reglue if not in the exact position as before the break.

Mr P -I did not know that. I would love to see the entire process. I'm one of those guys who stays home when I'm sick and actually watches the "How it's Made" marathon. Pencils... That was a pretty neat one. I never could figure out how they got the trees to grow around the little round pieces of graphite...
I actually like to have my vocabulary challenged and had never seen that word used in a sentence. I'm always on my teenagers to spell the words out. Stupid texting has all but ruined any kind of grammar and punctuation they've learned by the time they get to high school. U no wht I meen?
Thanks for the lesson. Let me know if Polk ever releases a video of their process. I'd love to see it. Of course today it is more than likely robotic and optically controlled whereby in the 1980's there were humans doing the work.

Wow I saw the speaker frame, they beat the crap outta it! At first I was thinking that if you could straighten the frame maybe it would realign the magnet. But looks like it was worse than first thought. I don't know about the dustcover but superglue on a wooden toothpick might work

does the magnet assembly need to be taken apart?

Can't a jig be made with screws (bolts) going to the three parts of the magnet assembly and then just shift the parts by turning screw turns until the driver moves freely and then glue the magnet assembly when all works smoothly?
