Yep navin... I know of this brand and have also met and talked with a sound enginner from this company. Their office is in this place called R.A.Puram... The guy's name is Anand and he's quite famous with car audio dealers. I think I could get him into this forum.. Has been sometime since I last talked with him...

Ok people. Finally, I got the parcel tray for my Alto. Out goes my invention. RIP CCTB. Yay! Yay! Hooray! Yipee! And what bass I get from it. I just love this thing.

More importantly, the guy who was fitting the screws was careless and punctured the rubber surround of the 936 with the screw driver. It is a very small hole but what can I do so that it does not start tearing. Maybe I can patch it up with some rubber-based adhesive. I feel miserable.

careless installer!
Why did one of the leading DIY people in this forum ask someone else to fit his speakers??

A little rubber based glue will help. I think Navin will be able to guide you better on this.

I told him I would do it myself. He said he would just put in the screws a little so that they do not wobble when I drive. What do I do about it now? It is a small hole.

in my days dunlop used to make a rubber cement that is quite good. it comes in a tube.

1. wash and dry hands well. very well. I would even use acetone to make my hands clean fo this level of work.

2. put a drop of the cement on your finger. then very carefully let a small bead of the solution on th rubber surround.

let it dry. 100% curing happens in 24 hours preferably over night.

hope this helps.

I am not sure where to get the Dunlop thing. We get a rubber solution to fix tyre punctures and the glue is called Comet. Will that be good? Or how about Fevibond?

What I am worried about is the surround stretching as the cone moves about and tearing more and more.

Fevibond might be better only because it is from a reuputed company. Otherwise see if you can find these....

You know I really hate it when that happens. Unfortunately i think it's happened to most of us at some point. Thats then I started using a screwdriver and placing my finger as a barrier around the area, in case the screwdriver slips. My finger can heal itself eventually lol

We do get some Loctite stuff here too. I have used it earlier but am not sure if it is like the one in the link you gave. I will check out the Loctite thing today.

My only hope is that the surround should not start tearing. Boo Hoo.

Vivek i dont think it will tear further on it's own. It's tough butyl rubber. Relax.

Thanks Sam. That is reassuring. Meanwhile, I will use some Loctite/Fevibond to try and seal it up.
