Hi, Jr.

I'm sorry, but glue will not fix this problem. When the rubber or foam edge of a speaker breaks down or deteriorates because of age, it becomes almost like dust, which is why it cracks and then breaks apart and falls away from the speaker. The only way to fix it (besides replacing the speaker) is to replace the edge, or "surround". At this link, http://www.simplyspeakers.com/All-Foam-Kits_c_118-1-3.html, you will find a kit that you can buy to repair your speaker for about $30. The standard 12" repair kit will work if you have an 'angle cone edge attach' type speaker (see the bottom of the page for a picture of what this means). This page, http://www.simplyspeakers.com/speaker-repair-foam-edge-replacement-instructions.html, will show you step by step how to use the kit to repair your speaker.

Good luck, and please remember to rate my help.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you.

Fix a torn speaker cone?


If it is a woofer, you would probably fix it quite easy. If the speaker driver is used for both bass and midrange, you have a problem.
Fixing a speaker cone is depending on the material. If it is paper cone, it is very easy by using paper that you glue with wood glue (White water based glue) on to the cones rear side (for estetic reasons).
A midrange or bass/midrange driver is operating in frequencies where the cone starts to break up. Not torn apart, but the break up frequency is the frequency where the inner and outer part of the cone not longer follow each other in the same direction. These properties of a cone determine the sound of the speaker which is that type of speaker drivers "identity". Messing that identity up, you end up with a speaker that does not sound as the original one.
Remember that cross over network used to split up frequency ranges, not only are lowpass, bandpass, and highpass filter, but they also filter irregularities where the speaker driver is not longer providing a linear frequency response (Its characteristic sound).

If the cone is polypropylene, there isn't much glue that bite on that material.

Need help fixing my suwoofer kicker L5


I have 6-10's and 4-12 L7's in around the same condition with the solo "S" blown out of the cones, its amazing what 20kw does to them in the right box..lol.
you could try sanding around the hole than c.a. (black rubber toughened super glue) a patch of thin cotton fabric, tack down the edge with glue, than saturate the cotton with glue and spray with accellerator, it should last quite a while before it flies apart.

Does mmats sell the rubber surround for a 12 inch procast? one of my procast needs a new rubber. Do i have to sent it in or can i fix it at home/


You can do it yourself if your handy. Lots of places out there selling them. Not too bad a job. Takes some patience gettiog the old one off.. If its really rubber and not foam, it'll come off in one peice. Have to be carefull the get the cone centered when ya glue the new one in. If you decide to tackle it get one with instructions and/or a good web search on the surround replacement.

I have 1 "12" kicker L7 and i got into a car accident. the sub works greath but the outer face has a crack in it.. its not big but i wanted to know what could i do to fix the problem


If the cone has a crack in it, that is USUALLY fatal, but you MIGHT try using the BLACK ABS plumbing glue to repair the plastic.

I don't know what you mean by the front face.

IF you mean the frame around the cone, I would grind out a groove (Vee it) over the crack and mix and fill with JB Weld. Paint to match when the material has set up and is smoothed a bit.

Cracked Rubber


what i would do is:
super glue the cracks, allow to dry and then use a silicone lubricant spray and let sit for about 10 min then wipe clean. silicone spray can slightly restore the rubber/foam

My 15" L7 from the top. the ruber cone, come off, like the glue was't stronge


That means you either overpowered the speaker by playing it to loud, You used an amp that was way to powerfull, orif this is a new speaker it may be a manufacturing defect.  Do you have a warrenty?
