Any shops recone?

I have an 05 xxx 12 that has died a familiar xxx type death.... burnt tinsels and am wondering if there is any shops in the toronto-ottawa area that do recones. I could send it to dave at TeamPsi and have it fixed for pretty cheap but the shipping both ways on this beast will be brutal. So im thinking it will probably be in my best interest to just get a xxx replacement kit from him and have someone redo the whole thing.

I could gut it and prep it im sure but would want someone with a clue to do the replacement.

x2 I have an 05 XXX 12 with a blown tinsel. It can't be that hard to fix yourself. You rip it apart, tear some glue up, and glue it back together and put the screws in. Decent instructions are what we need. I was told it would be like $50 for a replacement. I want to know if MT or BTL soft parts can be used. I liked the neutral-sounding cone (maybe it's low distortion), but this sub, in any box, sounds better than most drivers because you can't hear mechanical noise and it doesn't sound warm, it sounds like exactly what's supposed to be reproduced, but lacks a bit on tonal quality & transition because of that. I don't want to fix it and have it blow a tinsel again, are there any replacement kits that have stronger ones sewn in, if that helps? Is the Fi Q really louder and sounds better at 1000w vs 1500w? It's a heck of a lot lighter and cheaper. Great sub if you can carry it lol.

Its funny you mention FiQ cause i gave one sitting in my box atm holding me over and i got to say it thumps pretty good still even though i turned my gains down to not overpower it. It just makes me cry a little inside though seeing that Q in that big *** ported box lol.

As for replacement parts feel free to drop me a msg and i will give you a link to daves website from teampsi. He has drop in replacement kits that you can get from him that are made to factory specs, and he should know he was one of the 3 original founders of Re Audio before they sold. Im not sure what the policy is here so im not just going to drop it in this thread.

He also has up to quad stitched sewn in tinsels available. Mine had single stitched sewn in and fried so i think im going to go with doubles this time.

I can use spiders and cones to suit the install, or keep as close to stock as possible... the coil will have to be identical to retain the XBL^2 functionality...
