Am seeking speaker only for Trav-Ler 5002 unit, my cone is GONE, appears to be 4 ohm. Output transformer not required.
I have zero idea if any of these are floating around out there!

Cone is 1 inch deep, from top of voice coil to outer edge of rim (see photo).

(Found an inexact but workable replacement, thanks to all responders, much good information.)

John

John,
I have used this product, and it worked well.

You have to dis-assemble the plastic frame, but
it wasn't that hard. There are some retainer clips
that release the frame.
Hotwax

Edit: Looking at your 5002 chassis, I'm not sure how
much depth you have to work with. This speaker may
be have too deep a magnet size.

If the voice coil is still working, you might consider reconing it yourself ...there's an older thread addressing that.

+1. matching these "chassis mounted" speakers is near impossible. The brackets vary all over the place so the protrusion and height vary. You can make a cone for this with manilla business envelope. Use regular paper to make a form first, fit it then cut two overlapping halfs that will nest under the existing voice coil flange. Its tricky but I have done it. Use any medium flexible material for the surround... faux chamois cloth I have used on larger speakers.
Search ARF for a post I did years back.... keywords are Mark Pictures I think.
