    Default Anyway to repair rt55i silver dome coil tweeter seam?

    During a recent move to paint the house, the silver dome of the rt55i tweeter got pushed in pretty good. I took the speaker grill and front bezel off and was able to carefully push the dome part of the tweeter back out.
    This part of the tweeter is attached to the black bezel part and Iam not sure how to get this part of the tweeter off the bezel.

    The problem is there is a crack in the seem around the outside of the sivler dome, about 50% or more of the 1" dia. dome. Is there a way to seal this cracked seam? I heard of people using nail polish or maybe super glue. Does anybody sell a speaker type repair glue. The speaker(tweeter) still seems to work fine and sounds good. I can't seem to hear any distortion from the tweeter.

    How do you think polk would fix this. The tweeter itself is ok, Its just the external part of the silver dome which is somehow directly attached to the black bezel, and this part of the tweeter does include the wiring. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    I've heard of speaker repair kits, but I don't think that they're really designed to work with tweeters. I would think that tweeters are too fragile to be putting superglue or anything like that on them. I'd say save yourself the hassle of dealing with a sub-standard tweeter and just getting a new one. With the Club Polk discount, you can get a replacement tweeter for about $70 or so. You'd have to call Polk C.S. to get an accurate price since the 55i's aren't necessarily out of the warranty time frame as far as I know......
