This is not a rip on Weber at all....I already have a question out to Weber's technical support about my problems with the speaker's construction. I'm asking for some advice about wether or not i need to bother with sending the speaker back, or if I can get by with it as it is. I just recieved a Ceramic Weber California 12 Speaker for my DRRI. The speaker is beautiful. Problem is, and I didn't notice this till it was too late, the gasket was installed off center of the mounting screws. As a result, when I tried to mount the speaker to the baffle one of the screws wouldn't line up with the mounting hole and it slid into the speaker putting a small hole in the surround. I didn't force it at all, this happened very quickly the first time I tried to mount it. Now, my question is this: Is the speaker toast and I HAVE to send it back to Weber and wait the 4 weeks to get a new one? Or: Is the small hole not such a big deal and I'll be fine if I use the speaker as is? Someone mentioned a little dab of super glue over the hole will keep it from tearing worse, and will only slightly effect the sound. Is this viable, or BS? Of course this had to happen at 6pm on a Friday night. Just looking for some options. Tolstoy The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
