    I have a pair of B&W 601's - one of which has a slightly depressed tweeter dome (I blame some Aussie back packer friends of the WAF who stayed around once - grrrrr - Aussies worse than kids eh).

    Anyway is there anything I could do about this or will it have to be replaced?

    There's not much you can do with a metal dome tweeter. Best to give B&W a call and see what it'll cost to have the tweeter replaced - probably alot less than a new set of 601s.

    I dont know much about this tweeter but the usual fixers are Put selotape on in carefully and pull it off. (The selotape that is):eek:

    Put the vacuum cleaner hose on it and Suck it out.

    Do they do a replacement diaphragm?..

    Thanks Evil/Dan

    I've tried the vacuum method and id doesn't work on the 601's - might give the sticky tape a go but looks like I'll need a replacement

    Im sure they will replace the drivers for a small charge. B&W are normally quite good when it comes to this kind of stuff.

    Dazed,

    I had exactly the same thing on my new 602.5's (my fault, happened when unpacking them :mad: )
    All you have to do is give B&W customer service a call. They will send you a new dome and comprehensive instructions on how to fit it. It cost me under £40 iirc .

    Cheers
