It happens to anyone blaring their music at any respectable amount of decibels. Sooner or later you blow a speaker. The cone rips away from the ribbing and you think to yourself "Why the hell do I even spend money on this crap?"
Never fear, this instructable will show you how easy it is to repair a ripped cone. The great news is you won't even need any strange materials for this fix:
- Sewing thread, one (1) spool. Pick a color that closely matches your speaker material, unless you plan on being meticulous in the following steps. I used a cotton thread, but the type shouldn't be a major factor here.
- Sewing needle, one (1). Use as small a needle as you're comfortable working with. If this is your first time, don't fret too much, just don't use a needle that's so big it could tear the cone even more.
- Elmers General Purpose Glue or equivalent, one (1) bottle.
- Glue spreading apparatus, one (1). Finger, gloves, paper towel, pencil, credit card, use your imagination.
- n speaker(s) to repair.
- Just a little patience.
