Temp fix for sub
Posted: Mon Oct 29, 2007 5:00 pm
Hey yall. Im in school and living on a college budget. I have a 12" Alpine Type R sub and the rubber surround is comming off the cone. Is there a way i can hit it w/ some RTV as a temp fix till I get the money for a new sub?
Any other ideas of what i can use?
Again this is a TEMP fix.

super glue maybe?

doesn't super glue deteriorate rubber? or is that krazy glue? personally, i'd use gorilla glue and be done with it.

you can use some of that epoxy stuff on it...

I've heard of using nail polish on the cone, never heard anything for the surround though...

maybe try rubber cement.
but because of the variance in the pressures, the cone might not push out straight. so in time it will kill the sub.

Actually, I just thought about those rubber patch kits for bicycle tubes. That would probably work great.
