Default I done a bad thing!!!

I was installing my sub in a box and I slipped. Can you guess what happened? If you thought the screwdriver punctured the foam seal then you were right. OOPS! Is there a way of patching this seal or do I have to have the whole seal replaced?

Thanks in advance

Here's an old trick my uncle told me years ago.
If the hole isn't very big take a small piece of toilet paper and cover the hole then take some black finger nail polish and cover the toilet paper with that. Let it dry before using the speaker. It may not be pretty but it will fix the hole.
I did this to a home speaker and it worked great.

Anyone else know of any "home remedies" for this problem? Anyone think the toilet paper thing will work?

The tire patch or just use some super glue. Depending on how big the hole is.

Well I tried the "tire patch" and cannot get it to bond. I am curious as to the composition of this foam. Any other ideas?

I have done that to mine the first day i got them.

What i did was get a peice of paper towel and put in on the inside of the foam and coated it with silicone.

Never saw the cut and it worked like new.

You don't need much silicone, just enough to get the towel to stick.

Anything that will stick and create a seal will do the job.
