    I think so. It's interesting to note that I have seen these in old 580s and 600s, not yet in 650s. I also haven't seen yet old 580s and 600s without these. I probably haven't bought enough yet to find out.

    How'd you manage to remove the magnets without destroying the voice coil? Always wanted to roll an N52 or Alnico 5 in there.

    I wish I can show you - but basically there are two ways, on the modern ones the magnet is really loose or not so tight so if you just insert a tiny hex screwdriver in the hole and push upwards it does the trick. Wiha screwdrivers are awesome because the surface is smooth so as to not damage the magnet.

    The other way is to just use another really strong magnet to pull the driver magnet upwards. Slap on the magnet and pull with your hands. Surprisingly works well.

    On the older units though the magnets are very very tight so I have to use the screwdriver method. The plastic enclosure for these things are polygonal rather than circular so they achieve more friction.

    If you're worried about puncturing the diaphragm in the process you can blow a short burst of air into the drivers first so that the diaphragm raises upwards. That way you have more space to wiggle around inside.
