    I'm in the process of possibly buying a set of Eltax Liberty speakers (Liberty 5.0), however the floorstanders mids have had the centre of the cones pushed in, as has one of the mid cones on the centre!!. Although sonically the APPEAR ok I'm not sure. Is there any way of simply getting the cones back out (vacumn??, pushing them out from behind??) or is it a case of once they're in they're in and walking away from the deal??

    Personally, I would give it a miss m8. Probably more trouble than it's worth.

    That said, it is actually disturbingly cheap to have entire drivers replaced in all but the most high end speakers.

    You might only be looking at £15 to £25 to have brand new ones put in.

    juboy - Thanks for that. I'm waiting on Richer Sounds giving me an idea as to what each will cost to replace.

    There's probably nothing wrong with the drivers. A bit of suction with a vaccumm cleaner should do the job. They'll only really need replacing if the outer cone is damaged (not the central dust cap) or it is a tweeter.
