Well I just found a pair of 8340's locally. It's apparently pretty common that the surrounds on the 10" woofers deteriorate over time.
I got a good deal and want rears that can keep up with the 4Pi's (build thread coming soon!)
The pair I got are original everything, but the foam on the drivers was replaced a couple months ago.
Problem is, the edge where the foam surround meets the cone, has a very slight gap where it comes away.
This means that the drivers are not 100% airtight.
My question is, will this have a huge effect on sound quality?
What kind of glue can I use to seal these up?
It looks like the JBL tech used this black/clear-looking kind that stays sticky and malleable even after its dried.
I gave them a listen and they still sound fantastic.
For clarification the model is 127H-2.
