    I can get this speaker for 100 bucks before shipping, because it has a dent in it and a missing foot. He says the dent has no effect on the sound, and I dont need the foot because I will be making a center channel out of it. So..go or no go?

    Or maybe I could just replace that driver. How much do you think that would run? I emailed Klipsch but they are SLOW!

    A dented dust cap won't make a difference. A dented cone that deforms the surround. I can't help but think that will make a difference.

    Jason,

    If you do not get an answer from Klipsch then try a local Klipsch dealer. They can get any repair part for a speaker. Seems like a good value even if you have to purchase a new driver.

    If you do this please post your results as I would be interested to see how a regular speaker works for a center channel. Most centers with two drivers have a crossover networked so one driver is passive. Your application would solve this problem (to me) however I know they do this for a reason.
