    You can't clean it anymore, the only way to make it look decent is black dye or a recone.

    I'd be tempted to use some water based black dye in a spray bomb set to fine spray. It'll soak in quick, dry almost immediately. It won't add any weight to speak of. You could do as many coats as required making sure each one was dry before the next. However I wouldn't make sure the first or any coat was a 'good coat'. Take your time and do it gradually.

    The only advise I will give, is leave the cone alone. Do not apply water based anything for any reason. If your dead set on dying the cone, I recommend that you call JBL before doing so and get the opinion of someone at the service center, preferable not the janitor or a stock clerk. It appears that your cone has already been subjected to some degree of moisture, adding more may cause the cone to deteriorate.

    At least they look a bit better, well worth 3x10 minutes of cleaning
