Attached pics. It's hard to see, but there is rust on the speaker in two of them, on inside the hole in the back of the magnet and by the +/- terminals.

In the other pic, there is a small tear in the rubber around the edge of the speaker. My drill slipped and I poked when screwing the speaker to the door.

How detrimental is all of this? What can I do, if anything? I thought to put some silicone or something on the tear. Is that okay or should I leave it alone?

Thanks.

Hmmm... pic is smaller than I thought. The hole is hard to see, but it's just a tear less than 1/4"

Is it just the surround? you if so then you should be able to repair it.

Yeah, it's just the rubber. It's a small tear about the size of a philips bit. I don't notice any sound problems when it plays, but I don't know if the vibrations will open it up more or something.

What can I use to repair it?

1. It will hurt performance; air will escape through the hole
2. it will widen with use
3. You need flexible/rubbery glue
