Speakers pushed in.

Hi
Came home to find my 2 year old son having a great time with the cover off my pm c gb1 centre speaker and pressing in the tweeter and woofer

Any good ideas to pull the speaker particularly the woofer out to fix it.

Cheers
Jon

For the tweeter, sucking it gently out with your lips is best. (don't let your wife catch you at this - it does take some explaining!)

You'd need quite a small face to get into the middle of the woofer cone though, so see if you can pull it out with some form of sticky tape. maybe electrical tape?

or blutak - work it first to soften it and it will stick better.

what about a sink plunger - depress first, then place around speaker, which will create a lower pressure. better than kissing, i would have thought ;)

Toilet roll tube or kitchen roll tube - puts a bit of distance between you and the speaker!

My 13 month old is always poking the cones on my center and this always fixes it with no damage.. I chucked the grilles away years ago. Still, now I have a chance to 'upgrade' so that I get speakers with grilles on :)

OP refuses to kiss his speaker cone, so you advise him to suck off a bog roll? I fear he'll see that as a backwards step!

I wouldn't put a vacuum cleaner anywhere near a pair of speakers,to be honest,you have no control over it.

I've used the "Kissing" method before and that worked well for tweeter covers.

Genius! :rotfl:

I agree that a bit of 'speaker love' is best - I've used the kissing method and it works, but more importantly you've got full control of the pressure you apply.

Just remember - no tongues! ;)
