Vxt 8 cones color

I found a guy that has been selling his VXT8, he has 2 pairs, from which one has natural yellow color and other one has a bit orangy color of his cones... He says that he was surprised as well when he bought them, and that nothing is wrong with them...

Is this ok, should i trust him, is this difference in color normal for VXT series, or KRK as well, or?

Sounds odd, could be sun damage?

In my experience with using the VXTs for years. I have never seen a significant color difference between the cones. I've also not heard of anyone having any significant difference between the cone color. Assuming the cones are the same material I don't know if the color difference would indicate any difference in performance.

It could indeed be sun damage (Kevlar and Aramid are sensitive to UV radiation), or a replaced cone. It's worth investigating a bit. I know that the VXTs use Kevlar, and the Rokit series uses glass Aramid (apparently Kevlar is related to Aramid but not exactly the same as glass Aramid), and the two are noticeably different in color and texture.

Thanks for your response... I was in doubt that he replaced cones, and i would not consider buying it, but as sun damage is also an option, i don't know what to think

As above, I've never seen it before. Sun damage is more of a long shot tbh, as opposed to a replacement woofer. Either way, probably better to pass.

Probably better to pass, I agree
