The spider came loose from the cone and voice coil. What is a good solution for fixing this thing?
Superglue gel and accelerator.
What's a good way to get it in there? It's a bit tight...
Anyway you can. Get the gel in there, then spritz it with the accelerator to cure the superglue. The alternative is to recone it.
Model hobby shops carry the accelerator as it is commonly
used in that hobby. Great stuff.
Super glue gel you can get anywhere just about.
Part of my problem here is that it is in an 8" speaker. Those are getting hard to find.
There are recone kits or replacement drivers out there for almost everything. I had a B & O driver from the mid-80's repaired by J&J in Chicago. This one was really odd in kind of a 6 sided, squarish frame... thought the speaks were toast until those guys.
Parts Expresss or US Speaker might be able to do the trick for you.
Well, I wasn't going the recone route. The voice coil/cone and spider were intact, just the glue between them became separated. I bought some superglue gel with a brush, and it worked fantastically. I just pushed the cone down onto the spider once I had a good sheen of glue on the contact area. It worked perfectly. You wouldn't know they were repaired at all.
