    how to fix rip in 6x9 speaker surround

    So basically I'm an idiot and i put my drill right through the rubber surround on my brand new 6x9's last night

    Can I just throw some rubber cement on it or is it a lost cause?


    Thanks

    Well your Royal Jeepness I would agree with Igotafrigginjeep on the silicone or similar. That must remain flexible and is probably the worst part to router out with your drill as that constantly moving. Make sure its a flexible silicone like a gasket one and not high temp or acrylic.

    If it were the cone a hard resin would work best as many speakers use this where the wires pass through.

    I tried some regular bathroom silicone, so we'll see how that stands up. I like the idea about the bicycle ture repair. I'll try that if it fails.
    I love how I have to fix something that is brand new....(sarcasm)
