Wondering if I should have it replaced. I touched it with my finger (don't ask why, embarassed enough as it is). It's the center channel tweeter.

Yes it will change the sound.


Yes you can pop it back out.


Take a pencil and put some tape on it and push it gently into the tweeter cone and then pull it out gently.


That usually does the trick.

My cousin pushed mine in cause he was bored, So it was a cheap Onkyo and it had a little hole in it so I got a staple and pulled it out.


It's plastic also.

Post what material the tweeter is made of first before you listen to any of these chuckleheads. Or at least whether it's a soft material or a metal dome. If it's a metal dome, odds are you won't hear a difference, and trying to fix it will just mess it up more.

It wouldn't hurt to contact Infinity and see what a replacement costs. You likely won't hear a difference, but it's a fact that any deformation in the emiting surface of a tweeter will cause a wave front difference that -might- be noticible depending on where you're sitting in the room. Tweeters are carefully designed for even, wide dispersion.
