    Hello guys,
    I own a pair of KEF Q55 speakers. One of the speakers recently appeared to have a problem. The problem is on the dust cap of the speaker. I contacted KEF UK and the KEF local distributor and they suggested me to re-glue the dust cap with impact adhesive.

    A photo of the speaker can be seen here:

    Is the "re-glue" solution the right one?

    Try the glue, if it doesnt have satifactory results, you might have to purchase a new driver of kef, which will cost alot of money.

    Is the dust cap damaged ?

    No damage except the part that has "detached" (not sure if that's the right word).

    Personally, re-attach the speaker grille, forget about it.

    That particular dustcap design isn't a cone stiffener being soft, it's only of cosmetic significance.
