Temp fix for sub

Post by MoparNeonMan » 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.
me and my car have a give and take relationship

it gives me shite and i take it

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