small pinhole in my e120

Postby Chinarider1A » Sun Jul 07, 2013 10:00 am

I have several small pinholes (not sure where they came from) on my E120. There are 5 or 6 very small holes in a circleI. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks, Dave

I was going to say a small dab of black silicone RTV gasket maker, but epoxy would work too. My only concern about epoxy is that it tends to dry out and flake over time.

Depending on size, try applying a drop of superglue. Also, if there are several small holes, irregularly spaced, you may have a bug or bookworm or something. Find the source and exp[lain the facts of life. Good luck!

yep... for super small (like pin holes) issues on a speaker cone nearly any adhesive will do. I like clear nail polish. If they are larger, or cracks, something more flexible like silicone or even rubber cement works, but doesn't last as long. And... in a pinch, small pieces of paper towel or toilet paper can make a workable patch.
