Magnet Structure "Potting"
Genesis Physics used to do this for the woofers their top-of-the-line models 44 and 66. They glued a cardboard ring to the chassis and then partly filled it with epoxy.
I do the same thing, except I am using a polyurethane-based compound designed for filling gaps in concrete.

This option is available on all six and eight inch woofers I build, for DIY projects and also for EPI and Genesis replacements.
Here is a PRO 005 eight inch woofer I prepared this way:
