B&W 603s damaged ;-(

My darling daughter decided to come downstairs this morning and take off the speaker cover to one of my B&W 603s. She then proceeded to push in the tweeter several times which has resulted in damage.
Anyone have any idea if I can get this repaired? I cant be the first person in the world to suffer 'speaker damage by sprog'.
Tis my birthday too............some present eh!!

If you don't want to take it to a dealer for repair, send an e-mail to B&W tech support or give them a call. They can send you a replacement tweeter assembly (should be fairly inexpensive) which you should be able to fit yourself with minimal instruction. Once you've removed the back of the speaker to gain access, the s3 tweeters just slot and twist into place in the front baffle; no screws required.

MuFu.

P.S. Happy Birthday! :)

Not meaning to be picky but you have to take the kevlar midrange driver out to replace the tweeter, you can't get access from the back. It's pretty simple though, just remember to make sure that you connect the cabling back in phase.

Ah... must be different for the larger models then, my mistake (edit: ah, I see what you mean - can't get to the tweeter from the rear like you can with the smaller models). The screws for the kevlar driver tap straight into the plastic so be careful you don't overtighten them.

I've had a reply already!
It will cost £20 + p&p. They also attached a pdf showing full dismantling and fitting instructions.
Superb!

My little brother came over to visit last week and I put the grilles on the 601's just in case!

Also threatened him with mucho physical violence if he went within 2 feet of them!

Yep......my daughter has been told. Suppose it was my fault for forgetting to put the grilles on whilst she was staying overnight...
The tweeter dome does look like a nice shiny silver button to press! Shame it damages so easily. The tweeters on my old Tannoys were spongy.

*update*
The replacement part from B&W arrived the next day, and I fitted it that night. The speaker is back to normal ;-)
Excellent service from B&W !
