Default Help fix this FMI 80 Woofer

I just received a pair of Fulton FMI model 80 speakers and 1 of the woofers was damaged while in transit.. Does anyone know if a recone is available? Or is there a way to take the creases out of this one? I don't know the make of the maker, maybe try to find a replacement?

I removed the screws and the woofer seems to be glued in. I can't grab the basket frame with needle nose to pull on it. I also don't want to pry them out , that would damage the face of the speaker. Any suggestions?

I has success once with a small screwdriver in the hole at an angle, but if glued well, it going to be difficult to not damage anything.

The woofer is from Rola and the tweeters are Peerless.

Well, if the woofer cone is destroyed, you can always rip the cone out and pull the driver basket out :P

No, I think it was an OEM unit made to Fulton's specs, not an off the shelf piece.

I recall that McGee Radio in Kansas City had a batch of surplus ones for sale, but that was in the late 1970s or early 1980s. I don't know if McGee Radio even still exists.
