:clap::bigsmile:Well they dried and they look like they are gonna work , I removed the shims and as far as I can tell they move up and down and the voice coil doesn't scrape at all so I put the dust caps back on. here are some pics before they go in the housing.

And just now I mounted them in the Center Speaker Housing .... I probably need to wait a while before I hook them up because the dust caps glue is still a little tacky... but here you go .. I bought it for 10.00 :spend: at the pawn shop and then paid 17.36 :spend: for the foam surround from ebay and for 27.36 I have this..:clap::T

Thanks .. I haven't really pushed it yet but it doesn't rub thank God... I played a little DVD ( Pink Floyd The Wall " and at about -60db on the Pioneer A/V Reciever the speakers are holding up good.. I think I am going to take it easy until tommorrow morning this will give it a good 24 hours of drying .. I will try to make a youtube video in the morning.. It was not hard to do but it sure took alot of time .. Now I am digging around for old speakers to refoam..

Ok here we go again I am going Pawn Shop and goodwill shopping again today .. Iran across a really old set of cube speakers yesterday and then discovered they were rated at 10 watts so no go there.. Then I saw a couple of powered subs that looked like they went thru a fire but they were asking to much.. So I think I am going to go and try to cut a couple of deals at the pawn shop. Will see what I come home with today..

Ok this is the thing S-P410v Pioneer speakers that I bought today sound really good .. Ont the back they are 8 ohm and they are 3 way speakers.. Only rated at 40 watts but what can you expect for 6.00 for the pair.. They sound great. I am worried I am going to blow them .. I am using them for the left and right surrounds and I moved the 2 way pioneers to the rear surrounds.. So if I do blow them I was thinking about replacing the 5inch or 5.25 inch woofers in them with something better. the diminsions of the cabinets are
High : 31cm
Width; 18cm
Depth:11cm

So I thought maybe some dayton's if I actually do blow them up ...

yesterday I went speaker shopping again I ran across some infinity sm-122.. They need refoaming but I can probably get them for 30.00 for the pair .. they are in good shape and they are 3 way speakers .. I read online that they did not get a very good review but they look to be in way better shape than my fishers that I have been restoring .. Dont know if I should take the chance .. The wife will probably kill me..

More Shopping today ,, I see that Cowboy Malony elec City is having a scratch and dent sale on LCD TV's .. My Cousin got a 55 inch LCD there last year at this sale .. For 50% off .. It has a scratch on the back platic near the connections,, its not even visable at all.. I think he paid around 900.00.. I want to say its a LG.. I just dont know.. However I do believe I am going to pick up those Infinity's today after a job that i have to do this morning .. I believe my wife may kill me for it . But if I can sneek them in the house with out her knowing I should be good..
