I don't think it matters what forum this problem is posted in. I would try and tie it down with something non-resonant. You could glue an anchor to the magnet and use a stiff insulated wire or a pipe cleaner for example. Not a real elegant solution I admit. Might take some trail and error. Just be gentle. Good luck.

i'm thinking about melting the solder where it connects and take a tiny bit of slack out of it

I wouldn't recommend soldering unless you're willing to risk ruining the driver. I've had luck using a small dab of RTV right at the point where the lead attaches to the cone to hold it up off the cone surface at a right angle, just use something to hold it up off the cone while the RTV sets.

Hot glue would be too stiff, RTV remains flexible. And I don't think it would be a good idea to glue it down to the cone, beyond making the lead functionally shorter, it might put undue stress on the cone.
