    I was in the middle of my set, and one of my speakers fell down and now the plastic bit (?) around the bottom speaker has a big split in it and sounds like it's farting. Any way I can fix it? :(

    I've cut a chunk out which has stopped the vibrating but now there's a hole which I have to fill. Think a bit of black electric tape will do the trick?

    This one looks a bit more haggard than yours by the sound but maybe worth a go? I think you'll need to buy a new rubber/foam outer ring for your woofer/speaker, unless you have an old set of speakers? Maybe worth fixing instead of buying a new set.

    Or you could try and use electrical tape or even using an old inner tube from a bike and cut a little piece off and glue it over the hole.

    It's the thin plastic bit that covers the whole speaker. I don't know the names unfortunately, but I guess they can be replaced, they are Truth 2030A's.

    ?

    I mean, it's not making any vibrating noises now, just looks weird with a chunk missing.

    Does it still sound alright with the hole? By this i mean do you want to fill it up for looks or is it a problem?

    It sounds fine now, just wouldn't mind tidying it up a bit:
