Updating this thread with pictures of the 893's with @tuxedocivic trim rings.





The ring sits flush with the baffle. In my opinion, it transforms the look significantly and it a worthwhile upgrade compared to the stock gasket.

Installing the rings require the stock gasket to be removed. The gasket provides protection to the woofer during transit. So it can be carefully removed after the woofer is mounted on the baffle without any ill effects. Here is a single woofer is different stages of the gasket removal.




There is paper between the gasket and surround. Removal should be done very carefully to prevent damage to the surrounds. I ran across a couple of woofers that were more difficult and required more care and time than others. Do not forcibly remove the gasket if it is stuck to the surround to prevent tearing the surround. Instead try tearing the paper. Here it is with the trim ring installed.

Please note that is the first sample so, although it is not obvious, it sticks out a little bit. The latest samples that tux sent me sits completely flush with the baffle.

And this picture shows a good comparison between the stock gasket and the trim ring:

Thank you.

It looks a lot cleaner with the trim rings. IMHO, the stock gasket is very busy and draws attention to itself.

This rings make a definite improvement to the finished look. I'm hoping tux gets these available in a wider range of DIYSG speakers.

Is it easy to remove a ring after it's been placed?

I believe he has samples of the 10" sent out as well. He mentioned the rings would be available very soon.

The rings are press fit, so it is fairly easy to take out. Gluing or (double sided) taping the rings to the woofer is an option if you want it to be permanent. It is a snug fit though and stays in place once inserted.

If someone wants to experiment on a Fusion 8 woofer I can send them ring for the cost of shipping and material. Thats what I did with ja00. I have a feeling they're the exact same as the 893. But may not be and so Id need that person to help make any necessary adjustments. And if they work, cheap rings.

The Fusion 10 and 1099 should be good to go. The gaskets come off much easier on the accordian surround woofers.

Ill be taking orders very very soon.

Those look great! I'm excited to get some of those trim rings for my 893's as well. I agree - they definitely add a touch of class. Guessing you were one of the first 'beta testers' based on your comments?

I believe I had the first samples of the 8" trim rings. I worked with Ryan on 2 iterations to get the dimensions just right so it sits flush with the baffle.
