So I just notice the dented tweeter dome on my one of my Energy RC-50s. How I do not know especially seeing how they are designed in photo! I tried my vaccum cleaner but it is very powerful and I saw the tweeter moving as if it would pull off so I stopped and the dent remained. My question is does this really affect sound quality? I'd like to fix it but not at the expense of damaging the speaker further. If it comes down to it I'll call Energy and see if I can get a replacement (if that's even possible).

Options??

The dented dome will change frequency response and dispersion. The damage on your tweeter is too extensive to fix. I would recommend replacing it.

Is this hard to do and do most companies offer replacements?
