My old 8 inch speaker has started to sound weird. On inspection, I've noticed this:



This is clearly not normal!! The smooth paper cone looks torn or 'cracked'. Does this mean a recone?
Tapping on the cone compared to a healthy speaker reveals that the problem is real. The dull thud of the speaker when tapped is not reassuring at all.

Your speaker decided for you that you should upgrade. Hey, it gives you an excuse :)

Eons ago.. .. when I was a kid, we used to use nail polish in the gap, pinch it until it holds and then paint a few coats over the area to "reinforce" it.

No funds or Internet to research other options, between the dinosaur footprints.

Not sure if this is recommended these days, or ever was. LOL

Can you make it a head and compliment it with a 12" cabinet? Now we're talkin!
