It's good to hear the solution was that simple. Now if there was some way to make the grills non removable.....
I have thought of using just a dab of silicone on the rubber inserts that hold them but that may make it to hard to get off in the future.

Nice work Tony. Glad it worked out. I am not sure my kids know my grill covers even come off. Let's see how long I can keep it that way.
Thanks, my heart was in my throat when I saw the damage. With my 5 daughters its allot of fun just keeping my sanity.

I'd rather have hard to get off grills than deal with this problem again. Or even better if one of the little ones decides to poke a barbie or hair brush through the cone.

Re: Oh No, My 2 year old did it again!

Thanks, My fears mounted as I contaced Denon who was the Mission rep for Canada up untill about two years ago but they had no parts left and they gave me a Mission contact however they did not have any drivers left but they do still have the tweeters for my mission. I wonder If I should buy two just in case.

Re: Oh No, My 2 year old did it again!

If you intend on keeping them it might be worth it. My daughter blew a tweeter in one of my Celestion Dittons that can't be replaced.

Re: Oh No, My 2 year old did it again!

This is an easy fix. All you need is a piece of masking tape, folded over. Place the masking tape on the dust cover, then pull it back in to shape. I first saw this on Axiom Audio's website, you can find the how to video buried somewhere in their tips and tricks section.

Tried 5 different kinds of tape however none of them would stick to the cap (even duct tape) as its made of some sort of rubber that seems to not stick to anything.

I am assuming you have not tried gorilla tape which sticks to almost anything and is tough as nails. It's available from Lowes or home depot where I live. Anyways, it is possible for a professional to repair them. The Speaker Exchange in Tampa, Florida has an excellent reputation and many decades of being in business, they are a factory authorized repair center for many major brands and can probably fix yours too. (they do work for Disney, major broadcasters, performing arts halls, Universal Studios, Circuict City, etc)
