Hello,

I have a little table top speaker system that I use in my kitchen made by Klipsch called an "iGroove HG". It sounded like the speakers were blown so I took it apart and saw that both of the 2.5" speakers (one worse than the other) had a tear between the "surround" and the "cone".

I got those "surround" and "cone" terms after searching for "speaker parts diagram" which led me here...

http://www.simplyspeakers.com/speake...ricks-faq.html

I emailed Klipsch to see if they had replacement parts available and they didn't. Is there anything I can do?

I have tried searching for full replacements for 2.5" speakers but maybe I'm not searching right because I can't seem to find any good results; and when I do they're expensive and have too many watts.

These particular speakers are labeled on the back as 8Ohm 15W and then it has a "65E" on it as well (possibly a part number).

Perhaps you guys know of other sources to get a new speaker. I don't have any special out of the ordinary tools for doing speaker repair.

Thanks for your advise,

~Eric

Probably easier to just replace the whole thing:

Its a pretty old system, I'd be weary of buying a used one as it may have blown speakers as well.

I noticed that the simply speakers site has under speaker repair parts something called "repair adhesives". Would I be able to use this to fix the tear? On speakers this cheap could/should I just use some other super glue adhesive?

I remember nail polish and toilet paper was one method, so I Googled it, and here's a thread that talks about some other alternatives.

Only works if its the paper part of the cone though, not if the surround itself is foam and deteriorating.
