Fixing torn Woofer

My soundsystem was being used for a gig last weekend and one of my woofers blew out (see pics below). Ive been reading up on cheap diy speaker repair, and a few sites had mentioned using tissue paper and diluted elmers glue (which Im a bit skeptical about). Id rather not have to go and get them reconed, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?

    I would have though the tip was about right -- you want a patch which adds very little weight to the cone and a glue which doesn't cause shrinkage of the cone.

    However, that is quite a big rip and structural. I suspect reconing is the way to go.
  2. I have purchased creative 2.1 channel woofer but when ever i attached that one with my computer at that time it will not able to make good sound and all the wires are good in my system so give me suggestion for that.
    Thank you in advance.
