Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect match for AR 12 (11) inch 3a WooferWould be perfect if it had replacement cardboard gasket to maintain original surround height. I don't know if they are available anywhere though.

Is my AR3a woofer a 11'' or 12''. The foam measures 11'' and outer rim measures 12'' Please give me the correct part number..... thanks

Asked by: bigjohn2
This kit is designed for a woofer with an outer rim that measures 11". You may want to consider our general purpose 12" kit which is below. This fits a frame that is 12" and a cone that is 9-1/8" to 9-1/2".http://www.parts-express.com/speaker-surround-re-foam-repair-kit-for-12-speaker--260-930

does this have 5/8 roll width (16mm)?

I've been advised that the correct O.D. should be 10.5, this one is 10 3/8. How much of a difference would that make? Also, is the roll width on this surround 16mm or 19mm?
Asked by: OuterSpaceBass
The width of the roll on this kit is ~13/16" or 19mm. The 1/8" different in the overall diameter should not make or break whether this will work or not, these kits have a 10% or so tolerance.
