1030a cone damage query

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 12/20/10 Recent Posts
A pair of 1030As came up for sale and I've considered buying them but one has slight damage to the central hemisphere of the bass driver -- it has been dented a little bit. I wondered whether this kind of dent is just cosmetic, or if I could expect it would impact the sound quality in any way. I don't live near enough to the seller to go give a listen to them before buying.

Thanks to anyone who can venture an answer to this one.

In general a slight dent on the dust cap of the bass driver won't affect the performance at all. You could even try to fix it by applying a slight under pressure (suck) on it.
