mike hadley replied to Brad Winder's discussion Scott 16 parts advice
"Norman, I totally agree on this, as there seem to be so many variations with these speakers, the seller on ebay does have quite a selection of cones, so is possibly a good place to start. hopefully one can easily be found. Mike"

mike hadley replied to Brad Winder's discussion Scott 16 parts advice
"If the speaker is the 12" cast basket model, there are cones that will fit on ebay, type in the search window "134905A", these are the nearest fit, and are the ones I have used in the past. Mike"
