Is the spider a pleated fabric and the cone paper? If so I would try white glue, an artist's paint brush, a steady hand and possibly multiple applications.

If the original glue is still holding part of the spider that ripped away from the rest, the spider is burned out and a little or a lot of glue wont fix much anyway. Pic.?

Hi ,

Please go ahead with Cals suggestion on papers cones , treated cones etc. for PP cones you will need to use Loctite Prism Gel (or their latest version of PP to fabric glue - commonly available with all Loctite dealers)

If the spider is detached from the neck joint, white glue will not work. Use a 2 part slow cure epoxy . Apply a thick bead at the detached area and turn the driver upside down & allow it to cure. This also depends on how much spider neck area is detached from the cone & coil joint. If the detachment is over 40-50%, you need to pluck off the dust cap and center the coil with shims and then apply the epoxy to avoid misalignment. If you want to do it fast you can use rubber toughened adhesives ..... Loctite 480.
If you are not an expert in doing the above it is strongly advised to get it fixed by any professional reconer in your area.

if you glue back the spider will hear it!
The voice coil will hit the sides. Try to see the old mark, how low or high was the spider attached to the voice coil before it got loose. This is like fixing the surround of speakers....if you put them "crooked" they will sound "horrible". I have seen and heard them:eek

The point here is to "PRECISELY CENTERED IT"
oooh and use a STRONG glue!!! the spider will get a lot of in and out movements pushing the cones.
Make it simple...Make it better!
