A mate used a bicycle puncture repair kit to fix the rubber surrounds of his speakers. He used a piece of condom (a new one) for the repair.
If it was me, i'd remove the driver and do it from the inside.

Genius. I believe I have some puncture repair kits in the garage. Hopefully not the ones with the pre-glued patches.

So just the adhesive or should I also look at using part of an unsoiled French letter or some other form of patch?

Thanks

rubber solution should work too like evostik or even perhaps copydex. A piece of linen, inner tube rubber or the like should work ok.

I generally use just the rubber solution. A patch will ressonate.

Thanks All.

I found a couple of tubes of finest rubber cement in the bicycle repair kits, so will effect a repair.

Even after removing the 3 screws holding in the lower speaker it remains well stuck into the enclosure. I decided to just apply the rubber cement to the outside of the speaker at this point. It should be possible to dab some glue on the split from the inside without removing the speaker, but it would be an ugly blob. That'll be the next step I guess.

Just to follow up. I used the rubber cement just on the outside of the diaphragm and this seems to have fixed the issue.

Thanks to all.
