    I left my speakers on last night whilst i went to get something out of the shed, and my other half went up stairs to switch the speakers off and thought the tweater was a off button and pushed the thing in.

    I had a laugh about it but now im stuck with a tweater stuck in, i have tried a hoover but its not powerfull enough.

    Any way i can get the thing back out ? what sort of problem will this cause for the sound ?

    You would think it would make a big difference, but I've seen loads of people comment on here that they work fine.
    A more powerful vac might sort it, you'll have to ask around.

    Are they soft dome or metallic tweeters mate ?

    A carefully applied bit of sticky tape often works with soft domes, after the hoover trick has failed.

    They are the matallic type.

    Im thinking I may try some super glue or something and then use some substance to remove the mess after.

    What speakers are they? If they are pretty cheap speakers like the B&W DM601 or DM602 then you are only looking at about £25 for a new tweeter diaphragm anyway.

    if you remove the tweeter you may find the face plate with diaphragm is removeable. If so you can poke the dent out but there will be creases etc remaining, will sound fine though (I used to work in the industry)
