Thanks Maxx:
Above is the Velodyne Driver. This is only a partial photo because the entire one was too large to post.
The outer perimeter is covered  with the ring shown

G'day Richard,
                  I can understand why you don't wont to tamper with the Velodyne Driver ,On close look at your pic though it appears the out rubber seal is seperate to the inner rubber cone support ,whether it is glued is another question,probably not ,so the driver can be replaced and serviced.But If your happy with the performance ,as is, I'dd leave it alone.

P.S if you blew the driver in the future then maybe the time to experiment.I blew the driver in one of my sansuai's which started me down the road of experimentation ,last year.

G'day maverick:
The ring is separate from the Driver and is secured to the Driver frame all around.  I'm sure that if I were to pry it would come off and I would see the mounting screws.

You're right, I'm sure, about being able to replace the Driver if need be.

Cheers,  Richard

G'day guys ,
                 its been a while since I even thought about this tweak until the other day. I've been waiting for brass resonance cones to show up( still waiting) from the UK, thought I'd replace my 3 steel cones under my processor and try brass . anyway it suddenly hit me that I had a pile of brass screws sitting in a plastic bag at the bottom of my audio draw.

                  Well I'll be a monkeys uncle ! my system has changed that much that those screws actually cleaned my sound stage by attenuating the upper high distortions or slight reverb I was hearing . Don't get me wrong I've been over the moon with my system except for the occasional  cd  that  seems to reverb continually in upper frequencies ,it's most noticeable on female voice sibilance and piano key in high register .

                   Well I tried the brass screws and this time they are a blessing , I been playing my music all week at moderate levels around 60 db and was very happy but just now I let her rip at 90 db  playing Diana Kral (for sibilance) and Dave Grusin (for piano). The sibilance will always be there but it was very clean ( sounds real to life)and the piano has great Timber. Finished up playing George Benson's songs and stories surround DTS 96/24 also at 90 db ,,,lol,,, my ears are still slightly ringing but its got to be the closest I've heard my gear to being so life like,,, close my eyes and I'm at my local Pub listening to a Jazz band.

                  Mav'

P.S Moral is,, sometime what's old is new again
