    Icon33 How to fix a broken sub

    i need help!! i have a sub that has been ripped down the side of the plastic at the edge. i have been told it can be repaired by putting clear nail polish over the rip and it should work. could you please leave me a message and tell me if it will or if there is a different way.

    if the tear is on the surround then you shouldnt have much trouble with nail polish or rubber cement, just as long as it isnt a huge gaping gash.

    or for the best results, get a professional to replace your cones.

    no need to replace the cone...
    teh only real reason to repair a ripper surround is to keep it from ripping more....
    just use some nail polish stuff, any sort of sealant, anythign that will dry somewhat 'soft' not so much soft as not hard, lol and stay on there

    well, if the surround goes, the sub plays off-center,don't they? That's what happened to my subs. Changed the surrounds and it sounded good again. Saved me a crapload of money

    who's a con artist? sometimes products fail, its a fact of life...
    my question is, why did he let it get that bad? take it back at the first signs of ripping instead of getting all *****y about something that could ahve been headed off...
    but if they are dealers, they will replace teh driver for you
