If the driver isn't rubbing or otherwise showing distress, I wouldn't bother risking trying to get the dustcap convex again. The only thing affected will be in the midrange, and since you're using it as a sub, it doesn't matter.

How about a chewing gum? Seriously, depending on the material of the "dome" you could try some sticky stuff to get the right "pull". Be careful though.

I've used masking tape to pull dome out before. Stick it on, and pull out with a quick tug. In your case, don't bother. Having the dust cap pushed in won't affect anything.

Cheers,

If nothing is colliding with anything an option is to push it in
completely to form a concave dustcap, as its a sub this won't
affect anything.

Default Wax

I have heard that some people fix this as follows:

1. place a piece of string on the dented cone.
2. drip candle wax onto the string/cone area
3. wait for wax to harden on cone and string.
4. pull
5. remove wax from speaker cone.

- I never tried it, but let me know how it turns out if you do it.

A small bent pin, or a vacumn usually will do the job well for a paper cone.
