    As the title states, is there a way to prevent the woofer magnets from shifting? Epoxy?
    I am considering trading for a pair and want to make sure they don't shift on me. Do the woofers need to be disassembled? or just glued around the edges?
    Thanks for any help..

    Never mind, I found some info, apparently you can just run a bead of epoxy along the outside of the magnet, :)

    If I shipped NS-1000's I'd pull the woofers, apply a heavy bead of epoxy between the front plate that's bolted to the basket and the magnet and ship them separately.

    This is what an NS-1000xw woofer that had the magnet break loose looks like.
