Sub repair?

Well the other day I was playing through the fire and flames by dragon force. I had it cranked up. Near the end of the song the bass sounded really muddy. So I turned off the amp thinking it was overheating. Well It turned out that the cone had pulled away from the frame.

Its not ripped or or torn, the glue has just losened up and let go.

They are older MTX subs, theres a picture below of the subs undamaged, if it matters

Can I use any super glue or is there a special glue that I should use?

Speakers are usually put together with CA glue (super glue) in the first place, so that is fine.
