    Great Stuff expanding foam seeped into my crossovers, are they damaged?

    I have a set of JBL P560 components, and while installing them into the foam on the inside of my door panel using Great Stuff expanding foam, it seeped in around all the edges and filled the interior of the crossover to about 75% full.

    I peeled most of it away, although there is still a lot of residue.

    Is the crossover still usable? I planned on pushing them to their limit so if its damaged I will need to figure something else out, but the foam didn't seem to actually damage anything, rather than just get it messy..

    What do you think?

    Do they still work? Probably not damaged...

    On an off topic note I have some spare p560 x-overs somewhere.

    I have been very busy with work and I haven't finished wiring my system yet, so I don't know.. I keep hitting roadblocks like this and it kills my motivation to get out and finish it.

    I'll give them a try I suppose, and thanks for the info about your x-overs, but I hope I won't need them

    Well its good to hear that they are not a lost cause!

    The JBL's sound pretty great, you won't have to throw a lot of power at them. The midbass isn't exactly stunning on them though, but they sound good.
