    Hi

    Thanks to my darling children :devil: the two small speaker cones on one of my Pascal 705 satellite speakers have been pressed in! :mad: They have not been torn but I can't see a way to 'pop' them back out.

    Anyone on here got any tips on how to do this.

    They seem to sound OK so maybe I should leave well alone?

    Any advice welcome

    I have been informed by a technical advisor from B&W that if its the dust cap (central part of the cone) then this will not affect sound quality.

    ------

    Have you got accidental damage cover on your insurance policy - I made sure my policy covers that, as well as objects that get put in Ported Enclosures.

    Popular fixes are sellotape and vacume cleaner / hose.

    Put the speaker in a bowl of boiling water and wait a while.

    Oh no, sorry, that's ping-pong balls... :D

    MuFu.

    P.S. Vacuum cleaner sounds cool.

    Thanks for the tips - I'll try a few!

    Maybe not the boiling water though;)

    i'd use scotch tape rather than sellotape as well. I have a dented cone on one of my missions and it hasn't effected the sound one bit.

    Why not try turning the volume up on the amp, the power may blow the dents out.

    It worked for me on an old set of speakers years ago...
