Default Jordan JX92S damaged, possible repair?

Hi,

I damaged the central cone of a Jordan JX92S driver (you can see in the attached picture).

Do you think it can be repaired?

Thank you for your help

Renato

Once the metal has yielded you are not going to get it back into the original shape. Have you tried listning to it and comparing the sound against the mating undamaged driver? It might just be cosmetic, fine for the ears but not so great for the eyes.

IIRC, you can sometimes tease a dent out with sticky tape or similar. Not perfect, but can help a bit.

Being honest my ears didn't feel changes in sound after the damage, but my eyes...

That's another reason they invented grill cloth.
