    Small dent in Polk SR tweeter...big problem??

    I'm in the middle of custom fabricating my sail panels to fit the SR tweeters in. In the process, I put a small dent in the outer ring of one of the tweeters. I don't have the speakers hooked up just yet, but is this a big problem? How much will it affect the sound? I have a couple pictures to give you a better idea...

    You could hook it up and listen to how it sounds??? In all honesty though, i doubt you will notice an audible difference...

    Looks like it's outside the voice coil. Probably won't hurt anything.

    When I worked in a shop, we used to use tape to pull the dents out of speakers all the time, usually mids and woofer dust caps that had been pushed in, but with a little tweeter like that, I would be very careful, can't recommend it... might do more damage.

    I have a small dent like that in my Focal TNA tweeter, and I can't tell the difference. I just put it in my car anyways.

    Use the warrenty. Send it in to Polk with letter and reciept. My woofers were hitting my doors cracked the surround sent it in. Got back a brand new set of woofers no problem.
