I bought a pair of Type-S 6x9 coaxes for dirt cheap. There is a crack in one that goes all the way from the rubber surround to the middle. The seller told me they still sound good though.

How should I go about fixing it? I was thinking maybe a fiberglass patch might do the trick. Would it be too heavy though? How about duct tape, super glue, etc.?

Try mixing up some two part epoxy and putting a layer on both sides of the crack. That should solve the problem.

How much is dirt cheap for a cracked type-s?

I don't have any two part epoxy, but I have some epoxy resin - would that do?

And they where $10. They fit in my rear speaker factory locations, where I don't currently have any speakers.

Alright good. That is dirt cheap. After you fix them.. they should sound pretty decent. Props on a good purchase.
