i put a screwdriver thru the cone in one of my 6.5 component speakers while mounting it to the door.is it a good idea to fix it somehow?or will it sound like crap even if i fix it?its a perfectly round hole from a phillips screw driver.ive read other posts and heard rubber cement,silicone and other products work good.whats the best way to do this?

If you can use the same type of material that the cone is made of, just make a patch.


But really...

Is the hole through the surround or cone? If its the surround then just put some silicone behind it and it will be fine

you effed up, that is what happened.

but like I said, just make a small patch and use some Aleene's Clear Tacky gel and call it a day.

Thats ok. i was trying to remove the braxial mounts off of a set of b stock M6's and ended up taking a chunk outta the basket. literally ripped the **** off. So i did it to the other speaker too for symmetry. :) I believe pics are here under one of my old posts under the screenname stanky1219.
