    I have a Beheringer 2x10 combo with Bugera hard Attack 10".. I thought I had blown a speaker due to bad rattle/ buZZ. Upon close inspection I noticed that one of the woofer cone's glue failed, and the cone is now partially separated from outer "black ring" (not foam...kinda stiky paper) What glue/ technique should I use to get this up and running again? Thanks

    Tissue and white glue is speaker repair. Might not hold so well on the flexi bit though.

    Also, Behringer have a rep here, Sean Fairchild, who might be able to help, as warranty support is good, and also PR.

    Flexible is better. Contact cement should do it. I repaired a few Fender branded Eminence Legend 125's. There were a bunch with seam failures in some Hot Rod Deluxes. I reglued the seams with contact cement and 12 years later, they are still going strong.

    Thanks guys... I should mention that the cone is aluminum and the ring is not foam. The edge ring looks more like a tar paper composite.

    The adhesive will have to be tenacious, strong, flexible and the joint has to be able to take continuous vibration.

    Dear dnav1,

    Is your combo under warranty by chance? Even if it's not, you might want to try reaching out to our CARE team at care@music-group.com to see what options there may be. If you have already tried to contact them without much luck, you can send me a PM with your contact info and I can have someone from that team reach out to you.

    Good luck!

    Best regards,

    Ok thanks Sean... customer care from Behringer/ Bugera has suggested silicone caulk. Gonna do it and will follow up later on how well it works.

    I used Liquid Nails silicone adhesive. I pulled the speaker out of cab and lightly sanded edge of cone with 600 grit paper. Cleaned as best I could with iso alcohol/ Q-tips and let dry/ evap. Next I found that wife's white 8" Pyrex bowl fit outer ring perfectly and it has some weight to it too. I carefully placed rolled / paired tube socks between basket and cone and applied bead of silicone to affected area. I then placed Pyrex bowl to hold down outer ring which is "sandwiched" due to socks holding cone in place. I also added a couple hardback books to weigh down bowl then left it alone for a day and a half ( maybe hardest part cause I am impatient and like to fiddle with things ). Reassembled and sounded great! It's been two weeks and she's holding and rockin!
    At some point I figure the other cone or other part of this cone, will release from outer ring, as the aluminum edge of cones is very slick / shinny. I will try to photo or video steps next time!

    and at the bottom it says thank you, and now you can **** off
    There is a Marine caulking by 3M that we use on parts in the ship/boat that need to remain flexible.
    I wonDer if that would be good. It is the strongest adhesive I have ever used and the messy.
