I literally died inside when this happened. My drill slipped and went straight through the cone. I was really tired and it was late. I stopped and closed my eyes for a minute because i couldnt believe it happened.

Polk SR6500 Midwoofer Fail with no possible replacement ever :(

    Sorry that had to happen to you as I'm sure every speaker builder or car audio DIY'er has done that before. I learned that lesson once installing a system for a friend. Damaged one of the subs and had to repair it.

    The lesson is to mark your holes with the driver in. Take the driver out then drill, then put the driver in and use only a hand screwdriver.
