The 15" speakers (and the 6-1/2 mids) were replaced in both cabs. They were too old to be re-coned. Sometimes you just can't fix them. Here they are after I put new grill cloth on them.

I'd go with rubber cement on that one. You are going to have to pull the speaker so you can push it back into shape. A brand new kitchen sponge works perfectly. Brush it on the back first while you hold the sponge in place. After it dries brush some more on the front. I don't think you need any paper.

I'd buy a new speaker I couldn't stand to know I had one in my rig with a tear. Speakers aren't very expensive...

Iíll try this method then. I just need it to hold for a gig we have on the 23rd. Iíll probably order a new one after the whole Christmas frenzy dies out (this is a perfect excuse to finally get a new speaker any way...so far, I have my eyes set on a Vintage 30).
