Today I am going to show you how to repair a dent on a speaker's dust cap. When it comes to speakers without grills, people usually punch or push a small dent on a speaker's dust cap. The dent doesn't actually affect the speaker's performance but rather it becomes eyesore, dents make speakers look ugly. I found a fast and easy way to restore the original shape of a speaker's dust cap.
What Is A Dust Cap? A dust cap is the semicircular dome found in a speaker's cone. From its name, the dustcap prevents the speaker's coil form collecting and storing dust from the outside.

- Black Marker
- Long Nose Pliers
- 2 Thin Needles
Step 2: Making A Hooked Needle
Get your pliers and slowly bend the needle at a 45 degree angle. Be sure to bend it slowly or else the needle might break, needles break easily.
Step 3: Puncture The Dust Cap
Puncture the dust cap with the needle you just bent, then pull it in a slanting position. The hooked end should grip on the dust cap. Repeat the procedure until it goes back into its original shape.
Step 4: Using A Marker To Hide The Tiny Holes
Use a marker that matches the color of your dust cap. Shade it until you are done.
Step 5: You're Done!
Your done! You're speaker should look like the picture below.
