EAW LC1075/CK1075 IIRC.

Your local distributor should be able to provide these, I bought four from them earlier this year.

Should be really easy to come by in the future since RCF now owns EAW. . .

How bad is the tear? A small tear can be easily repaired as long as the cone or surround isn't getting brittle. Depending on what you have on hand the repair can be made in a variety of ways- Laminate construction paper on either side of the tear, or a bit of fabric if it's up near the surround. I use a latex adhesive but even good quality "white glue" can be effective.

It's not bad, but I'm selling it and I want it to be 100%

It depends on where the tear is.  in the body of the cone or the surround.

If in the body, a 50/50 mixture of elmers glue and water and paper towel is a good easy fix.

Spread the glue on the back side of the cone. place a piece of paper towel over it and add a little more glue and press into place.

Allow a day or so to dry.

If on the surround, RTV, silicone adhesive is a good choice.  Spread it on both sides of the surround and make sure to squeeze it inside the tear.

I'm sure Ivan can attest to this as well but I've had many drivers come across my bench for re-cone that are completely suitable for repair. Small tears, rattles, buzzes can often be fixed up quickly and last years once back in service. The customer is always right though, so if you have to have a re-cone installed go for it.

 While I'm sure that the repair will last and work fine, I'm not sure the individual I'm selling these to will understand that. I want them gone. That's why I'm reconing
