    Hey everyone,
    I just wanted to say that using regular ol' scotch tape to pop out my pushed-in dome tweeter worked. It was pressed in since I got it. Just taking a peice of tape and gently pressing it against the dented areas, then quickly pulling out brought the dome back to life. It took a few tries to get it right, but it looks as good as new now!
    I read that a few people had success by doing this, and sure enough, it worked! woohoo!!

    I had success popping out a fabric tweeter dome by using the metal hose end of my vacuum cleaner!

    Does a pushed in dome affect music in any way (that the human ear can detect at least).

    Suction does work well too. This weekend I was livid when I pushed in my tweeters on brand new speakers. Two lips and some inhaling and VOILA! like new.[​IMG]

    I have also heard of people using a hair dryer to heat up the dome to soften it up before using the scotch tape. They claim they get less crinkles after it pops out. Although I have never had reason to try it, seems logical.
