Would it be worth it to fix my Alpine S 12" ?

    Hey all. I think I will be done asking questions here after this!

    I have an Alpine type S 12" that worked great until there became a small split (about 1" long) from the cone to the rubber surround.

    Anybody have any idea if this is fixable?

    I would rather not have to buy a new sub, but if I need to then that's okay too.

    It would be the same cost to fix it as buy a new one.

    okay....then what dual voice coil would you guys recommened for under $140 and why ??? The amp being paired is a RF P3001. It runs 300 watts @ 2ohms or 150 at 4 ohms.

    We're you even able to find a place that re-cones them? I asked about an old set of 12" Type R's I had and Alpine themselves said they dont offer that service. I ended up buying a new set.

    alpine has their speakers field destroyed and sends a replacement pair.

    you could check out a diamond D3.
