i saw the tears on the spider, i suggest let them be. if you glue them, it will affect the flexibility and elasticity, in consequence, you will speed the damage.
I didn't see any photos of the spider-so there may be more damage than what we are aware of.

If the spider is also damaged-then a recone is in order.

I made a mistake to describe it, but i don't know how you call the side "material" alike spider of the paper cone.
Yes, if spider damaged, it's easy to replace a new.

The spider is MUCH harder to replace than the surround (which is the tear in question).  If you are going to try to "replace" a spider-you are much better off doing a full recone.

However replacing the surround is not a big deal-I used to do that all the time (when I was a reconer) for various rips and tears-and it was cheaper than a full recone.

Of course you have to have the skill and knowledge of how to do it properly-or the speaker will end up worse than when it started.
