Fixing a dust cap on a Beyma Liberty speaker

Postby tcsned » Sun May 21, 2017 4:08 pm

I've got a question for you all (that would be y'all if you are here in my neck of the woods). One of my Beyma Liberty speakers took a hit from a mic a few years ago and got a nice dent in it. It started really buzzing at my last gig, and not in a good way. I noticed it now has a pretty good crack it it. How tough is it to replace a dust cap? Is it possible to do a temporary fix with some rubber cement on the crack?

Try the cement, and if it's a no go, then replace the cap. It's easy, and there are a ton of tutorials online to do so.
All's well that sounds well.

Thanks! I'm gonna give it a shot. I fixed a small rip in my Boogie cab with some silicon caulk and it's still functional and that was done in 1989-90. :)

The rubber cement seemed to stop the awful noise. I'm guessing it won't hold forever so I ordered a replacement dust cap for it.

I would recommend a sliver of aluminum duct tape until you get it replaced. The air escaping the hole is what you are hearing.

Thanks Waldo, good call. I'll give it a shot.
