Today one of my L5's started to sound messed up.....Checked it and the Glue holding the cone on is Coming off. Is there a certain type of Glue that they use for this?

Here are some Pics:

yes it does suck pretty bad. It was making a HORIBBLE noise when It was playing and it was pissing me off. at least it seems to be repairable. The Glue that is on there peeled off pretty easy in one piece., Not sure what kind it is.

Alright. I bought some of this to: Posted Image

But I dont think either will work :( I found this Speaker cement on http://www.elexp.com/che_8337.htm
Seems to be like the same stuff the factory used....forms a hard, durable and vibration resistant bond with minimal shrinkage also is black like the stuff I had on mine. I will probably order it and give this a try.
