Does anyone know the exact part# for a replacement speaker for the Submersive? I've read it's a modified Eminence Lab 15 speaker, but I haven't been able to get a definite answer.

The speaker's front cover has a habit of falling off when the cats jump on the speaker and their claws actually tore the surround foam on one of the speakers. Any advise would be much appreciated.

I would contact Mark. He assisted me with a grill problem I had.

I’ve sent a couple emails a few weeks ago but no response.

What was your grill problem? I’d like a more secure way to attach the grills as well as a thicker or more protective grill fabric as mine are unbelievably thin.

Hi Todd,

Sorry for not catching your first e-mail.  After a little searching I see we did miss your 2 e-mails from late March.  Please check your e-mail, as I just sent some details and I'll verify what options I may have on the shelf when I'm in the office tomorrow morning.

As for grill options, the early fabric was very stretchy.  Years ago we switched to the same premium black fabric we use on our Catalyst speakers to maintain continuity.  This fabric is much harder to press in to the cone as it has less give.  The cats could probably tear it if they try hard enough, but it should be more resilient to the cats so long as the grill is in place.  New grills are $60 each + shipping.

To answer questions about the driver, while the "LAB15" can fit in the hole if you tear off the edge gasket and replace it with the original rubber edge boot, the parameters and performance are dramatically different.  You would definitely not want to mix our driver with a LAB15 in a SubMersive box since they share the same box volume.  This is not a woofer ordered or sold by anyone else as it is custom produced for us with much greater in-box efficiency, amplifier matching, and lower distortion than a LAB15.

Thanks Mark! I got your email and appreciate you setting me straight on the amplifier I have. I'd been away from the forum for awhile and just got excited when I thought I could use slave units. (Senior moment) ;-) Looking forward to getting the sub back in working order and new grills as well!

I just got through with a master / slave change to my two SubMs. I now have a 6kw (i) amp in play and am happy.

Sounds like you are on the way to getting you situation remedied but unless your cats are kept off of your speakers, this will get repeated !!
