Specifically 5ks as there are no more bass drivers available from Meridian. I have a set of 5k smileys that will likely get parted out due to the lack of OEM replacements.
I will however see if a local guy can re cone them.

I believed it was the same bass driver in 5ks and 5200's. Is that not the case?

what is the bass driver in the 5200.2? Can these be used in legacy 5ks?

They are a similar size but I am pretty sure it is a different construction. I have both back at the house. I can check part numbers later this week.

Curious as I’ve not heard of any problems related to drivers, refreshing tweeters yes but I thought drivers went on forever. Is this climate related degenerative, cats, kids, cleaners?

I have a set of smileys that the bass drivers are destroyed from high volume abuse (not by me) or a bad amplifier board.

5200’s and 5000’s use mid/woofs with slightly different dimensions and are not interchangeable.


Repair Information:- Stocks of original Legacy DSP5000 woofers (model P17RCY) are now depleted, this woofer frame size is no longer manufactured by SEAS.

The replacement DSP5200 woofer frame size is larger and will not fit mechanically and is not suitable acoustically.

DSP5000 Legacy P17RCY/TV-BS H716 - 08 Ohm

DSP5200 (Legacy and .1/.2 SL) P18RCY-ME1 H1701 – 08 Ohm

DSP5200SE P18RCY-ME2 H1701 (clamp ring version) – 08 O
hm”




I thought these had bass management algorithms that prevented this sort of thing? Or did that not come until later?

They do but amp failures can take out a driver.
