I got them for 30 and they aren't broken so can't exactly complain

So i can use the Aleene 's Tacky glue i already ordered on the tinsel lead as well?

Where would i buy some mounting gaskets (europe)?
I mostly find the tape you glue down from the usual scumbags on ebay

I am going on vacation tomorrow and won't be back for 3 weeks, so will have to wait with everything anyways

The ebay price for one sub was EUR 130.

I wonder why the front surrounds are so squidgy? Anyone know? Your idea of making a solid ring to go on top sounds a good one.

Aleen's tacky glue won't do for the tinsel lead - you need something more substantial to build up into a cone and head the tinsel lead out in the required direction - like Granville Black (or Clear) Silicone Sealant from a car accessories store.

You could make rear gaskets from card - use several curved sections to cover the entire circumference. I've seen old drivers mounted in this way - better seal than just metal to wood.

Happy holidays!

Wait a minute!

Were those squidgy blue surrounds designed to be removed in order to mount the speaker, then put back on afterwards?

Yes, the surrounds were not in place in the first photograph you attached!

Please elaborate as I've successfully used this on far more demanding repairs than what I perceive tinsel leads to endure, i.e. ones where I can't clamp/press parts together as well as the instructions imply: Aleene’s Glue Products | Craft & DIY Project Adhesives - Aleenes Super Gel Pen Adhesive

@GM

To elaborate:

I was referring to Aleene's Original Tacky Glue, while you are referring to Aleene's Super Gel Pen Adhesive.

The latter has a thicker consistency, so would be the better choice for the job.
