    Ok im in a conundrum
    i recently noticed a flapping sound coming from one of my speakers in my car
    so i took the speaker out and inspected it

    i found that the aluminum-coated section of the woofer had seperated from the rest of the woofer (about 1/3 (max) around the diameteror the woofer)
    now i wanna know if i can fix this myself with some bonding product or i have to take it somewhere to be fixed/thrown away

    i REALLY dont wanna be up for buying some more speakers, because im fairly poor as it is :(

    i drew up a diagram of what im talking about
    also they are ///Alpine SPR176A Speakers
    i love em to death and i dont wanna have to get rid of em :(

    Selleys Araldite... can be found at bunnings warehouse... between $8-$15 for 24mL, theres four different types, you would probably want the 'Quick Set' (90 secs) one which is $15...
