Default But you gotta realize ...

That for some that's no problem .. but that might be a strong repair with a hose clamp and it might look steampunk then . And another easy way is using Gorilla glue , they make it for more than wood ... ruff it up on both sides you wanna stick together and after it cures then trim off the excess or even a top of the line adheisive ... as long as it looks good ... cosmetics can be important to some , and not to others .
It's the owners choice . Sending it to Garrett and have them give it a going over and making sure it 100% waterproof might be the best way or if your sure it's water proof without proper inspection then go for it ... hose clamp , Gorilla Glue ... Super Glue , even Gorilla tape ... the choice is the owners .

Copper pipe wall clamp. fits to existing screw holes around the speaker. I found this on another forum. When you have a problem or question , just type it into google and do a search.

This. I would use 1/4 20 helicoils with red thread locker to hold the coil in. Not on the bolts. I use them every day at work and they hold the uprights onto the crossbar stubs on the NFL goal posts we built.

Just curious, but, was your AT Pro a "major award" that you won in a contest?
