contact cement works well and stays a little flexible...probably a good idea since the dust cap gets squeezed and flexed regardless of how stiff it's supposed to be. The added flexibility should prevent it from popping off. Contact cement works great for surrounds as well..you know in case you do a little screwdriver ventilation. I actually have a sub woofer i repaired about 15 years ago that's still intact...so yeah that works!

X2 ... when I used to re-cone speakers for API and Harman we had a dedicated glue. But once I stopped working for that shop, i still reconed numerous woofers and used contact cement with good results.... just let it set-up on the dc and cone before putting together..... and dont use the low odour blue stuff.
