Default Help, broke my radiator lol

As you can see in the following pics, this is my peerless passive radiator which has decided to un glue itself today :thumbdn:. Sadly, i dont think this is covered by warrenty (can someone advise?) as they can simply claim it was over-extruded i guess?

Does anyone know or have experience with re-gluing these? what type of glue can be used and how much etc? the hardest bit will be cleaning the old glue, but in terms of sitting, it slides back into place pretty eaisly.

Any help is much appreciated!

Pics are too small, yo've posted the thumbnails instead of original pics.

As for repair, these radiators doesn't require high-precision skills, just some proper glue at proper places.

Standard PVA will probably do the job. Certainly works for attaching dustcaps and stuff, so I see no reason why not.

Leave the original glue on, use plenty of PVA, then wipe off any excess.

No way PVA will work on speakers this heavy and this large...

I'd think of epoxy, cyanoacrylate. Cyanoacrylate is ok, if the gap between broken pieces is really small or nonexistent, otherwise it will break.
