Default Value - Klipsch KG 4.5

I have an option to buy these speakers (set of 2), but want to know:
1) What is a realistic 2nd hand price for them, taking into account that they are about 7 years old and the 1 got a dent in the dustcover.
2) How can I remove the dent?

I am listening to them now on my modified Mullard 5-20's and they sound really AWESOME. I cannot hear that the dent cause any interferance of any kind.

Thanx for any suggestions.

I have a pair of these that I keep around for their high sensitivity and laid back sound. They generally go for $250-300 US per pair in good condition.

Use a vacuum cleaner to pull the dent out. It's usually very easy to do.

Default suck

just don't use it if you think your vacuum might be powerful enough to suck up the whole dust cap, rather than pulling out the dent. This is generally only an issue with dust caps whose adhesive has deteriorated over time.
