    From what I understand, this is evident in almost all 12” and larger spreakers. Has to do with the cone “rippling” in waves as well as moving in and out. Cant remember where I read that but it seemed to be a reputable site.

    My cone cry on my vibrolux never went away even after rotating the speaker. Finally broke down and had it re-coned. No more crying except tears of joy from the sound.

    Cone cry is not related to anything that can be rectified by rotation of the speaker. That ‘cure’ was mentioned with regard to voice coil rub.

    Ribs in the cone in addition to doping the surround can help minimize the problem of cone cry. Stiffer paper is better than thinner paper. Any light paper without ribs and little or no doping will exhibit cone cry when presented with signals of a certain strength.

    Sorry, I thought they were the same thing. I had cone rub and it did not help rotating the speaker but I gave it a shot anyway.

    Voice coil rub and cone cry are two known and completely separate issues. Now, cone rub is something about which I know nothing. (;^)
