Unpopping a speaker cone?

The name says it all! Discuss Steve's studios, your studios and gear set-ups, amps and effects here. This is not for discussing guitars (Steve's or otherwise).

Have tried a little Cello tape. Didn't work. Duck Tape? If I do go into monitor, those screw, front mounted or best to go in from back?

ie: The last thing I need is to un-screw the front screw only to have the speaker drop down into housing.

Damaged in transport.

What yee think?

Gutted.... :roll:

what I tend to do is stick my face on it and wet the cone a little (if it is rubber, not if it is card etc) then apply suction to the cone with my mouth and suck it out!.

Beware that if you use ns10's the diaphragm is toxic by all account, that's why they were removed form sale in the first place. This also suggests that I'm not the only person that has ever done this :lol:

how about a vacuum cleaner, you should be able to make a good enough seal around it.

If you have kids it tends to happen a lot, unfortunately, I would really impress on my kids to not touch any of my gear, if they did they would get a severe telling off!

That's not the cone. That's a dust-cap. It prevents dust from reaching the voice coil. It has no bearing on the sound. In fact, there are kits for replacining dented ones.
