speaker cone scratch


Novice Member
Hi there,

yesterday my cat worked out her frustration on one of my B&W 603 speakers. I was able to intervene quickly, but some damage was made... as seen at the picture.
The cone isn't pierced all the way through, but some marks are made.

Will this effect the sound?
Personaly I don't think so.
The speakers aren't connected yet, I just got them. Still waiting for my AV Marantz SR7015 to hook them up. So I can't compare if there will be a difference.

I'd agree.

The centre part is actually a dust cap so as long as it's in 5act it will still be doing its job I'd say.

It shouldn't affect the sound if the dust cap is scratched. Some manufacturers, particularly subwoofers, print raised logos on the dust caps.
