Default Help: Soft dome tweeter pushed in

We finished a couple of birthday parties for my 6 year old daughter. I checked one of my Eton 19SD tweeters had it's dome pushed in. Any tips on how to pull the dome back out?

Does having the dome pushed in affect the sound?

Thanks,

Al

I used to use a piece of tape to grab onto them and pull them back out.

Oh, yes it does.

Is this a softdome, textile type of tweetie or a metal dome?

Cheers,

if its a cloth soft dome, use a pin -- just bend the pointy end a tiny bit to make a bit of a hook. if it's a plastic dome you can also use a rolled up piece of cardboard to fashion a tube and a little suction will pull the dome back!

my oldest son pushed a small "teddy bear" through the port of the first set of reflex speakers I built with KEF B139's -- when I took them apart I found all sorts of kiddie crud --- a zwieback toast, a teething ring, and those mechanical robots which used to be called "transformers" ... it all comes with parenting ... further, he also wrecked the differential of my first Mercedes when he learned to drive.

The Eton 19SD has as soft silk dome... the rest is aluminum.

I have a central vacuum with a 5hp motor. I'll try the tape first.

Thanks,
