    Sorry to see that mate. :(

    Is it a main speaker or surround? If a main get it fixed - call B&W direct and get them to send a tweeter then get your local dealer to replace it. Should be able to do lot for less than £30.

    Good Luck. :smashin:

    Ouch! SDK,
    As Deanym has said if it's a main get it replaced. It will affect the stereo imaging of the speakers but they will still work, you won't damage them by continuing to use them.
    I'd get it replaced purely from the aesthetic point of view. I couldn't sit and look at it everyday.....:rolleyes:

    You can use sticky tape to pull this out. Just be gentle with it.

    You need to make sure that the tape has as much contact as possible, and pull very gently on it.

    I seriously doubt you could hear the effect of that mark now but see if your misses can help you do a blind test (moving it from left to right and so forth) if you want to be sure.

    Nice Job!:thumbsup: I tried it once on some Tannoys, failed miserably! But that looks pretty good to me. I reckon you'd need some good ears to pick the difference now. Blind testing will be the crunch though.....

    Another method that can also help, (now I want you to sit down, and I am serious), is to place your mouth over the tweeter and "suck" gently.

    Sorry, it is very difficult to put into word without laughing. But hopefully it will be helpful to someone someday.

    Cheers

    sdk,

    I did the same on my Tannoys recently. But, I was lucky due to the fact, that the tweeter unit had screws on either side - so it could be pulled out. I flattened it from the other side, and it looks exactly like the one on your fixed picture.

    With regards to the sound - there is not much difference, and in my opinion, it is just cosmetic. Also, I was doubly lucky that the tweeter unit came with the black metal grill - which I had removed as I liked the 'bare' look. I have replaced them since then, and everything is hunky-dory!

    BTW: I also saw exactly the same damage on a LRC-60 in a shop recently, and out of interest asked a sales guy - if it could be fixed. He just gave me a blank stare - which said it all!

    i had the same problem on my dynaudios when my Ex's nephew popped in. he pushed the tweeter in on my centre.

    Got the dyson out and carefully brought the hose closer to the tweeter and it popped it out, a little bit more dignified than sucking on your tweeter.

    It is the www.sidehsowtoy.com models, but they forgot to paint my helms deep model, that is the reason the helms deep model is there, needed proof when telling them. :) But they are nice. expensive as hell but real nice ( when they paint them that is)
