    Default Tweeter dust caps on CS400 Question

    I purchased some Polk speakers recently and some of the dome tweeter dust caps had been dimpled in from the popcorn packing pushing into the grills on a CS400 and a Fx500 I pulled them out with a piece of masking tape and they look fine, my question is this though, while touching the tape onto the rubber type cap It felt like there was a secondary cap underneath it. I emailed polk asking if they could provide an answer last week but never had a reply. Have any of you ever had tweeter fry out from a cs400,cs400i,fx500,fx500i,rt2000p? If so I am interested in knowing more about how these are made. If I have to I will buy a bad one just to disect it. Any help would be appreciated.

    There is like a foam *cushion* inside the tweeter, you will not hurt the tweeter it self with the tape or pressing down. Trust me, I know. I thought my tweeter was blown and carried it around school, survived my friends. Later found out it was NOT blown. Sheat what a mistake I made. Anyways, it still works. Sounds the same. Dont sweat it.

    Thanks for the information on the caps, I had no idea thats what is in there! Now I can quit worrying about it and think about my pair of RT2000i's arriving this week. Thanks for the quick reply too!

    That's not a dust cap...geez! That dome and the attached voice coil IS your tweeter. I highly recommend not pressing down on it.

    Sid, remind me not to buy any speakers from you....lol.
