Unless it's huge hole, I don't think it should effect performance much. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong

thanks for the help guys
i ended up using some vinyl, rubber, etc. repair stuff made by loctite. it's supposed to bond and repair, withstands a wide range of temperatures, resists breaking due to flexing, water resistant, etc. so i figured it'd work well. seems to be holding up perfectly. can't tell any difference however from the sound since the speaker didn't rattle or sound any different than the other side when it was punctured.
