if you bought it from an authorized JL dealer, send it in for warranty.

yeah if you didnt, then your screwed. But if so then just keep it as a souvenir seeing as there would be no other use for it.

How big is the rip?

T.Dot_E30 04-20-2007 01:50 PM

you can get it re-coned.

Or you can also repair the rip.

I'd repair a W6V2, without hesitation.

Do what these guys said.

use black automotive GOOP... works wonders

just buy a new one,becouse if you do a recone it is no longer JL and if you fix it like some have said it throw off the balance of the voice coil...cheers...

you can buy a cone kit from jl, but it will cost you.....

as long as you get a jl w6 cone kit it should be balanced out aslong as you do the job right

paul christians 04-28-2007 02:54 PM

^^it is the same price as a new one...

my bro's alpine type R 10's surround let go of about half the cone, and he fixed it with Goop. Works fine over a year later. he wiped the excess off pretty good too, can hardly tell.
