Not sure if you can "glue" this.Wait for "more knowledgeable" people to respond. I would just replace it  ... /www.ebay.com/itm/Klipsch-KG4-12-Passive-Radiator-/132622565743?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c4#viTabs_0

You can fix it until you can get a replacement. You may not NEED one after this.

 

Remove the passive from the cabinet. From the back side, use some Weldbond adhesive. It dries flexible and clear. Thin with a small amount of water and brush on the back side and place some strong tissue (cigarette paper will do, or a piece of wrapping tissue). Brush on that so it sticks. Let dry and repeat a few times. Should take more than an hour or so. I did some JBL rubber surrounds in a afternoon. Did a coat and went to do other things.. did a coat...

 

They are still rocking after ten years.You can also put a few coats on the front side to fill the gaps. Then go over the whole surround to help it keep from splitting more.

 

All it will take is a few dollars and a small brush (artists paint brush).
