Hi anyone knows where i can fix my cracked speaker rim?
This is a focal access 165 a1.
The material used is a plastic.
Your help is much appreciated, i just need it to be sturdy again.
Don't need to make it looks like new again.
Open to DIY ideas too icon_question.gif

Many brands like Loctite, Selley, Araldite. Just go to any hardware store of DIY shop and read one for plastic. Or just ask the sales guy. Plenty of brands.

This product may be a bit too liquid until it cures. If you cannot dismantle the surround, the putty type is easier to use if you cannot risk the epoxy running onto the cone and the woodwork

One way to use it is to wait for it to thicken up before applying.
