Returning it is unfortunately not an option. So far I can think of: (1) Hang it from the ceiling as a Jerry-spirit mobile. (2) Sell it with full disclosure for a loss. (3) Have it repaired/reconed, e.g., by this place that's gotten good reviews: http://www.speakerrepair.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=RECNEPRC , but at the same time, some people warn the recone kits available today are not the same as the old ones and it'll never quite sound the same. What to do about this bummer?!
