you can try certain things to keep it from spreading/reseal the box, but they really cant be fixed and there is no gaurentee that it will hold

Some tape would be the best thing i guess, especially if it'* foam.

If it'* rubber, maybe you could fashion a bicycle patch in there that would bond with it.

Some high end ones are, but def not on a RF Punch, if u sent it in to get fixed (if they offer it) it wouldn't be worth it.

Time to upgrade?

You can have any speaker reconed or refoamed, but the cost is not apealing since the whole assembly has to come apart.

I would suggest using a clear caulking to patch up the hole as it is flexible when its dry. Tape would patch it, but not help stop the spreading of the tear.

well one has an actual hole in it, the other has a minor rip in it. They are both made of foam.
