as long as it the right recone for the sub then your golden you will need glue but other than that your good.the dusst cap is the last thing to go on that stays off until the end so you can get to the shims that center the voice coil and remove them before gluing the dust cap down.

I am still confused as to what the shim is for. It's to line up the v.c. to what????

The coil slides over the center pole on the motor use the shims to have the correct and even space all the way around between the pole and the inside of the voice coils if this is not done correctly it will cuase the voice coil to rub on the motor and wear a chunk out of the voice coil! ( That is bad!)

That would be correct. make sure to remove them before glueing on the dust cap as they will be under that! good luck and post some pics for us!

I have some duco cement. Will that work?? From what it says on the container, seems like it will work fine.

if you dont have any loctite blackmaxx go to ur local hardware store and pick up 3 glues for a recone.
gorilla super glue it is rubber toughened and works great. this is for gluing spiders together,spiders to basket,cone to former.

next is goop this is the best for foam surrond to basket and dust cap to cone.

last 5 min epoxy you mix up 3/4oz and puddle around the top of the cone to the former joint...
