    how to fix rubber surround on a sub?

    hello people, it has been awhile since my last post here, maily because i needed no help in awhile but now i need some advice. ok i'm not so sure if many people are into audio, home and car, but i'll try anyways. ok this one is about car subwoofers. ok they are MTX Thunder8000, 1000 watts peak, their are 10" 2 of them. and they are not old they are only about 2 months old, and for some undisclosed reason the rubber surrounding on both of them became detached from the outer rim. and when u lift up the rubber surround there is a little lip that they were once attached to, one of the subs it is detached all the way around, and the other most of it. i got these from my friend who only had 400 watts going to them a peice, so we thought it might be his boxes because they are small, because he has a truck, but besides that some one told me i can use silicone epoxy and put it around the lip and let it dry for a few days, and itll be fine. but im not sure ive never seen subs do this before. but i was just wondering if anyone has tryed repairing surrounds on a speaker or has any tips or if there is a place to get them repaired, but basically any pointers or tips or information is helpful thanks. oh yes it is rubber surround not foam.

    Do a search for "speaker re-coning" if you insist on not buying new JL's...

    (sounds like someone has their watts rating screwed up or blew it out with a sealed cab---or something?)
