How small is a "very small drill bit sized" hole? 1mm?




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Yes about 1mm Perhaps small enough that the surrounds will not need replaced.

I used some clear silicone on a small tear in one of my subs, I put a small amount on each side of the surround and it worked great.

You need something that would be able withstand the movement of the cone. Amazing goop works perfect it's very popular for fixes like this in the car audio world. Pick some up at a automotive store for 5 or so bucks.

You can dab some on the front of the cone or behind or do both.

amazing GOOP contact Adhesive??
says its good for plastic , metal,Polycarbinate and other car materials is the correct stuff. I would not want to put the wrong stuff on.
If it works on plastic it should work good on Rubber surrounds correct?
Price $5.99 so its cheap.

thanks!

So Amazing goop has worked very well, It seems to have repaired this sub-woofer hole. It is probably also good for repairing other various stuff.
General repairs are probably what its good for .
