    Icon33 Which dustcap looks better?

    So I'm about to build my second sub, but I'm stuck on which dustcap to use. I originally ordered the Carbon Fiber dustcap, but ended up getting the Poly dustcap as a freebie with an order I made. After placing it on the cone just to see what it looks like, I'm starting to wonder if the Poly dustcap actually looks better?

    What do you guys think? Go with the Carbon Fiber dustcap, or the Poly dustcap?

    Carbon looks a lot better to me, gives it some characterist instead of the dull poly

    Poly. Marches the sub. The CF doesn't match the Kevlar cone or black of the surround.

    I thought about a smaller dustcap but this particular cone has an indentation in it just for the 7" dustcap and I didn't want people to see the indentation. I think I will go with the poly dustcap though.

    Couldn't say if it's solid, it was purchased from ultra_audio on ebay

Don't really have a lot of pics at the moment as I'm about to build it. I'll be making a separate build thread that will have lots of pics though.

    This is just with some parts mocked up, nothing glued. I will be painting the top and bottom plate metallic black, an idea I'm stealing from a member on the SSA forums lol
