    Just wondering if it was possible to recone an Eminence Delta Pro 12A with an EVM12L recone set? I wonder if it would work. I think the only issue seems to be that the DP12A is 6.2" deep vs. 5.5" for the EV. The voice coil probably doesn't sit in the magnetic gap properly.

    I wonder if people recone with different sets to get a different type of sound.

    No. Voice coils are not interchangeable between Eminence and EV.....won't fit the gap.

    Lots of combinations to get different sounds but the voice coil need to be the right diameter to fit the gap without rubbing the top plate and fitting the pole piece properly.

    Different cone geometries, mass, stiffness.
    Different spider weight, stiffness/compliance.
    Different Voice coil winding length in copper or aluminum.
    Different sizes and material of dust dome.

    If only I had the resources to make parts to alter the sound of a particular speaker.
