If you're worried about the looks.. order a new one... It wont affect the performance.

Use a heat gun (carefully!) to get the old one off. Don't gay, fuck, dick or stupid up a good sub with garbage fucking work done on it. It is way easier than you think. It's just a dust cap. What adhesive are you going to use for the new one?

thin bead of either clear or black silicone should do real nice
Replace damaged or aging dust caps with these high grade units. They are available in four different sizes to accommodate 5-1/4" to 18" woofers. Your choice of either paper or polymer dust cap material. Use speaker repair glue for paper cones or super glue gel for poly cones.

I've always used the good old fashion white glue.

It dries clear and you're gluing paper together anyway so there is no need for anything extravagant.

parts express sells the glue you need. exacto knife to take the old one off. or at least on most subs I've seen.

I dont know why they even make subs with seperate dust caps anymore, the solobarics with the solid cone/dust cap were the best looking subs ever, and you could throw stuff at the cone and not hurt it..
