    I"ve checked the web and groups.google, but haven't seen exactly what
    I need.

    I used to use service cement to repair the paper parts of speakers,
    but I don't do that much anymore, I only need to do one speaker, and
    my service cement is gone. IIRC it was like rubber cement, from a
    stationery store, but I'm not sure I do recall. Is that right, will
    rubber cement work ok?


    A webpage I found said to cut pieces of tissue, like Kleenex, I guess,
    and soak them in a mixture of Elmer's white glue and water. Beside
    rips, I have one little hole.

    Thanks.

    I guess that Elmers white glue is standard PVA ( polyvinylacetate ) glue. If
    it is, I have used this method to great effect in the past. PVA is also your
    standard wood glue, although I seem to think that this is yellow in the
    U.S. - I'm guessing that's where you are. With PVA that starts out in the
    bottle about the thickness of pouring cream, I water it about 50%, then use
    bathroom tissue put on in layers, and wetted down with the glue mixture. Do
    the back of the hole as well if you can get to it.

    I have also used silicon rubber sealant ( sanitarywear sealant grade ) in
    the past, to repair long throw cone suspensions where they have started to
    split.
