Try a piece of tape. Take a few inches of it and make a ring, making sure the sticky side of the tape is on the out side. Stick to tweeter and then pull. This usually works with soft domes. Good luck

well i tried the tape trick with a few different kinds of tape, no luck. turns out that if i just called my local b&w retailer, i would have found out that it only costs $25 for a new tweeter, problem solved. thanks anyways guys, espicially for the "Me suckee tweetee?", makes me think of the good ol days..... ohh me so horny, me luv you long time (sorry to any1 that doesnt know the song)
I had a dented tweeter on my Paradigm Studio 20's. I found that by removing the diaphragm and using a soft Q-tip to gently push the dent out worked pretty well. The problem it that with metal domes, the metal is usually stretched when it is dented. Therefore, I am still replacing the diaphragm with a part from Paradigm ($50). This is the best and cheapest way to fix a tweeter - you do not have to replace the whole tweater either.
Fixing the dent did have a noticeable impact on the high frequency clarity however.
If the dent is not deep, this technique is much safer and effective than tape or vacuuming!
