Repairing speakers

I have a set of B & W 603's and a B & W LCR 60 centre speaker... My daughter (2) decided to poke the cones... Yes poke the cones! Thankfully just the tweeters...
Happy enough with the speakers and its £59 for a replacement tweeter for the 603's. can't find a tweeter for the LCR 60 on google but will speak to local dealer...

Anyways, is it easy enough to change the tweeters on the floorstanders or is it a leave in to dealer job? If its only a few screws then I'm happy enough but I don't want to damage anything further!

Why not try B & W for the parts? Easy to change, just the screws and push on terminals, although may be soldered on some models.

If the tweeters have been pushed in but still work ok try sticking some strong sticky tape on them and then pull it towards you carefully it can pull the tweeter dome back out again sometimes.

If they are soft fabric you can try sucking them out. Use a centre from a toilet roll - place it carefully over the pushed in part and get your mouth coupled to the roll and suck. - often works with fabric ones but not metal ones.

Did say "use your mouth" - vac is probably 1,000 times greater sucking power.
Oh well - off to B & W then.
