Hi, i just bough second hand speakers with the dent, it does not affects sound ( i hope ) but it does not look right. Not sure what could be next step trying to fix it. I can post a picture if that would help. No idea what is the speaker model and google did not helped . Your advise would be greatly appreciated

Thank you in advance

CAREFULLY try using your vacuum cleaner to fix this 'dent'.

Sounds like the spherical dust cover over the center of the driver? If so, yes a vacuum can work, also a piece if tape pressed to the dent and pull it out.

The vac has worked for me. You don't want to use a large overpowering commercial vac...LOL. I used a smaller sized vac. Place the end of the hose directly on the dust cap, then turn the switch on and off in one fast motion. One try usually does it.
