Linn kaber woofer repair

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I bought a replacement woofer for my Kabers and upon arrival the woofer started coming off the frame. The seller was very kind to suggest a repair alternative and refunding me most of the money.

I have tried to glue it carefully with the glue as per the attached photo but it’s come up again. I had wiped the metal frame with light Alcohol to get the surface clean. I wiped the part of the woofer too but lightly so as not to damage it.

Can anyone suggest an alternative glue or a process to do this correctly.

If you contact Falcon they will sell you the appropriate adhesive to stick it down properly.  I am not sure but the glue you have may be a contact adhesive whereby you need to coat each surface and let it dry for 15 minutes then when pushed together they seal and glue immediately to each other. When I did a replacement surround many years ago I just used UPVA glue and did the coat and leave to dry and push together and it worked a treat for me.  I have seen this recommended https://www.parts-express.com/parts-express-speaker-repair-glue-1-oz-bottle--340-076

Yes it is - but the links for the problem and glue may help I hope.  I would be tempted to try superglue (gel) first though - it does not have to be flexible at the point it is glued down so may do the job a treat
