I doubt you would have heard a difference even while it was dented.

Relax and enjoy your speakers.

And put the grilles back on, will prevent your son from damaging the speakers.

Naked speakers are fine when there are no kids in the house. Put those grills back on!

Yes, put the grills on.

The may sound better as dust caps have very nasty break-up modes. An off center dent can help to break them up giving a smoother sound.

Now, I have used 3M structural foam tape to pull dents from aluminum and poly dust caps.

I think you should be fine, another trick if the tape doesnt work is to use a vaccum cleaner. You should use an end on it that is smaller than the dust cap and round though.
