Broken tinsel lead at speaker cone

How do I replace a broken tinsel lead by the speaker cone?
This is for the 5.3 ohm woofer on an oa116 speaker. Can I cut a slit in the cone and solder the wire to existing wire going to voice coil. Would prefer to repair, if not feasable anyone recommend a 6.5" speaker with closely matching characteristics?

Have a look at https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... insel+wire and see if any of them is similar to your problem.

If it's not possible to repair the correct and modern substitute is the 5,3 ohm version of B65oaIV. https://www.hifikit.se/b65oa-iv.html
