These X-8″ recones are compatible with all 3 versions, V1, V2, and V3, as long as we know which version that you have.
If you have any questions, please contact us and we will help identify which version you have.
We are working on getting pictures to make this easier but for now here is a break down of differences:
Xv1 8″ — The bottom of the motor has no vent holes. The frame has no vent holes. There is a plastic spacer between motor and frame.
Xv2 8″ – The bottom of the motor has 1 center dimple. The frame may or may not have vent holes depending on when when it was made. Some of the v2s will have spacers. We will need to know what set up you have.
Xv3 8″ – The bottom of the motor has numerous vent holes. The frame will have vent holes and there will be no spacer.
Drop-in kits DO NOT include shims or glue.
If you are not 100% sure about re-coning, please ask us or send your subwoofer in.
It will take on average 2-3 weeks for your order to be completed.
Once your order is placed, you will receive a confirmation email. No other updates or emails will be sent until your order is completed at which point you will receive an email with tracking information.
White paper trimmed / stacked to spec works great for shimming — use enough where it is snug but not so tight you can barely get the coil in the gap.
For glue, we suggest using CA glue or Loc-Tite 5-minute epoxy with mixing tubes to glue the spider to the frame and E6000 for the surround and dust cap.
Make sure to rough up the glue surface of the dust cap and sand and clean the frame beforehand.

We cannot warranty DIY Recone assembly issues.
We can ONLY stand behind labor that we perform.
Manufacturing defects in the kit itself are our responsibility but installation is 100% customer responsibility (this includes ticking, rubbing, broken parts, etc.).
Thank you for understanding.
