Default GTO 608c Tweeter Terminals

Hi Guru's

Today during one of the drives, some water spell on one of the Speakers (GTO 608c) in my car. To dry it out, I opened the door panel and it seems that my tweeter wires were very tight and unfortunately the leads from the tweeter came out.

I tried to fix them but to my efforts went in wane. I need your help whether I can fix them up. As for now, I have replaced the tweeter from my GTO 607c pairs, which I recently replaced with GTO 608c.

Sam can you please let me know, where I can fix them up. If they can be replaced. I would bare the cost for it. Can you please suggest me the way through to get them repaired or replaced. A pic to explain the things.

even better get a soldering iron gun it costs around 50 bucks for a good quality wala, and get the soldering roll for 5bucks, and you can do 100 such soldering ends, or go to any electrical repair shop like said above should cost you 5 bucks to fix it.

Thanks LBM, Panky and Rider60. I my self being a qualified electronics and communication engineer working on embedded systems. I have temp controlled soldering iron and other tools at home. But the problem is not with the soldering coming out. It is the clips, to which the wire is soldered have come out. That is there is no connection with the inner part of the tweeter.

if the wires connected to cone are cut at the cone then its a difficult job but possible.If they are cut at the terminals and are short of length then you can remove 2-3 strands of normal speaker wire and join them.after soldering them to terminals use super glue to fix the terminal on the tweeters body.Hope this helps.
