    the paper thats in the center of my speaker has came loose
    i guess its called a dust cover maybe?

    its an aluminum coned hartke 10"

    can this be glued back? hot glue,crazy glue, silicone?

    would that affect my sound in any way?

    edit: its not torn just looks like it came unglued, its an older transporter cab

    just a dust cover but if junk gets in there is can cause buzzing/whatever. I got a surround kit once and the stuff just looked like elmers glue. You can contact any local speaker repair and they'd probably do it for nothing.

    Use a thick consistency cyanoacrylic (superglue), after applying spray it with cure accelerator. That's how it's done at the factory.

    thanks for the replies, i used superglue and it seems to be holding ok. I havent powered it up yet to see how it will hold

    my speakers were rattling a little and 3 of the dust covers were loose, thats all i could find
