    How to tell difference between pre and post buyout RE woofers?

    Is there any easy way to distinguish this? From pictures?
    I've got a local deal that seems good, he thinks they are pre buy out, but isn't certain.
    Is there a way I can tell from the pictures?

    They are in an enclosure.

    Here is a picture. They look to be different models? Is the left one old/right new? Could they both possibly be new? The left one doesnt have SX on it.

    And is it just me or does the right one look like it says "SE" rather than SX.

    Check the baskets, old 12 spoke usually good indication that there before buyout. Black basket 6 spoke is newer.
