EPOs es14

can anyone suggest a suitable glue to "seal" the mid/bass driver cone back to the voice coil former.

It's not come away, its just not air tight anymore.

thanks in advance

Given that Epos is owned by Creek (and is an entirely different company to EB Acoustics) I doubt that he could help.

Jony*5, I would suggest you call Epos for their advice.

Oh buddy, don't spoil my fun. We're only talking about a suggestion of glue here. He should know and as the OP already started a new EB thread (one was overdue
) Rick is the obvious choice in the absence of Mike Creek. They do make speakers you know, just in case you were wondering. That and a little more exposure.

Personally, I'd just use a little superglue but I can't say for certain that is the right choice (or of course just discard them and get some EB2)

Drummerman,
Your conspiracy theory is getting tiresome now. Please desist.

To the OP,
You should be able to get something suitable from online sellers such as this...

Ah, alrighty then ...

Also a vote of contacting epos, as they will tell you the exact glue they used for the speakers. It will be shown on all their manufacturing drawings which should be kept on file.

Indeed, that would seem to be the best answer, and I've always found the company to be extremely helpful.

Of course, if the speakers are seriously old, and predate the Creek/Epos era, the information may not be to hand...

Found them very helfull also on all matters before.

If they pre date their drawing records, then if the can gauge what type of wood cabinet they are they can give a good guestimate as to the right kind of bonding glue for them, or another double jointing method of glue and glue tape.

But the problem is between cone and voice coil former, not to do with the cabinet, if I read the original question correctly...

My mistake, have been looking at cabinet making today and sort of had it in my head then..Sorry.

They still should be able to give the right info on bonding if they have the code off the back and maybe the serial number from it.

Thanks for all the advise,

I rang Mike Creek @ Epos, he suggested it was a very difficult job, due to the dual suspension. But I'm going to try putting a "tube" of xray film down the inside of the voice coil, around the pahse plug (for protection).

Then, a small amount of super glue with activator around the base of the cone.

Interestingly he mentioned a new pair of Epos Encore 20's which might be a suitable replacement for my 14's, which will be on display at silverstone ent of Sep '10.

You do know that the phase plug unscrews, don't you? I used superglue to reattach the mid/bass cone of one ES14 speaker many years ago (more than 10, I think). Still works fine - and I can not tell which one it was.
