I have a set of speakers in my posession, which were shipped in bubble wrap and rested FACING DOWN in the package (resting on the surround).

Consequently, upon taking them out of the package the surround on the woofer isn't perfect - there are dimples on the surround.

Will this effect the quality of the speaker? These are expensive speakers (Focal 165K2P) and if they are worth being repaired, I'll repair them.

Thank you,

Ryan

if the VC is still aligned, then you can just play them and the surround will reform back to its original shape...usually.

That's good to know. They're new speakers OOB, so the VC should be fine.

There's also a slightly bent tweeter grille... do I have to worry about a tweeter rubbing against a grille like a subwoofer would?

Thanks for the quick response James

I wouldnt but you could always bend the grill back to shape.
