    Posted: June 01 2006 at 06:24
I have a speaker with a tear in it. I'd like to repair it since it's not going to be used for hi fi purposes so it isn't worth replacing. Does anyone know the best method? What kind of glue? Does one use a patch or what? Any help would be appreciated.

I'm no expert but would think once ripped the whole speker will have to be replaced.

I very much doubt there's any suitable way of doing this.Even if you don't want hi-fi quality sound, I can't imagine a DIY job even being listenable. Your best bet is to take it to a specialist and get a quote first. If it's too much for what you want, then maybe look at trying to do something yourself but I doubt it'll be successful.

Thanks everyone. Just to let everyone know, I used fabric glue watered down a bit. It looks like it will do fine, so far so good.

It works for now. Time will tell if it holds up to humidity and cold temperatures (it's being used in a shed).
