looks like the cap (bass blocker) for the tweeter exploded. look at the bottm of the tweeter for a blown cap.

the tweet blew and the internals dripped down onto the cone in a perfect symetrical pattern.

OP its just the glue they use at the factory to hold the tinsel lead to the cone it is normal. but type s? ewwwwwww

ohh, I thought he was talking about the little white fluff all over it. I have blown tweeters before on similar coaxiles, and it would leave a white paper fluff all over the cone from the cap under the tweeter.

but if he means the black tinsil lead epoxy...

Should he use a dremel tool to try to very carefully grind it off there before it does any real damage? I'd hate for it to get any worse ...
