Default Re: Slightly torn subwoofer surround

thanks for the response heavyduty. Its a fairly small tear (smaller than a tick-tac sized flap). Should I lightly coat the entire flap and the surrounding area or just the edges of the flap itself? (I can reach under the flap btw!)

Thanks for the help!
