    Busted VMax 65

    So I took my speakers out of my old car to put in my new car. Well, some where between taking them out and them sitting in my room, I busted one of the cones on one of the mid range. What are my options here? I don't have much money so I'm not looking to buy new speakers. I was thinking about just buying a new set of mid range speakers that are around the same specs and using the old tweaters and cross over. Whats cheap thats good now a days? Thanks.

    I've been reading on here and if I just use a 2 part epoxy to seal the crack would that effect the sound quality?

    Depending on the damage to the speaker. If it is relatively small, then use a 2 part epoxy and try to seal it from the bottom of the cone.

    The crack goes from the center of the cone all the way to the surround. I'm affraid it may be a lost cause.
