Stock woofer fix

took out my aftermatket woofers and put in the stock ones. one of them had one wire glued to the speaker and the other wire came off. tried a tape but no luck. is there any way to fix it back? seems to work well in terms of the thumping compared to the aftermarket one. Really dont want to throw this out.

How do you mean "glued to the speaker"?
Usually some kind of Faston connectors are used to connect the wires to some tabs on the speaker.

I was talking about the other end of the wire where it is glued to the paper kike material on the speaker itself.

Ah sorry, now I understand.
The wires are not glued to the cone but to the wire ends of the coil that is suspended inside of the permanent magnet. Could also be that the coil wires are just fed out from the cone to the frame. Usually there is some black goop applied on the wires where they run over the cone.
Sounds like your wire just broke where it comes off the cone.
If you have plenty of time then you can try to scrape off the black stuff and see if you can reattach the wire somehow (probably conducting glue). Personally I would just buy another speaker.
