Can a "pushed in" dome tweeter + midrange be savev

Grilleless Gershman Sonograms were approached by 4-year old. All six speakers were "pushed in". I'm wondering if there is any way to create a suction or something that would return the domes to their original shape. There is a soft dome tweeter but also a Morel domed midrange. The dust caps in the woofers are pushed in somewhat but I don't think it matters.
The dust caps I have pulled out using a straight pin with a bend near the tip. Sometimes the cap can be pulled out that way. The suction idea for the other drivers sounds promising, although I don't know just how to implement it. I'm sure someone here will have a good idea.

Good luck,
Any vacuum with a hose attachment will do it. I've seen it done many times on many speakers. Cheers,

Gently place one end of a cardboard tube from a paper towel roll around the dome, the other end around your lips, and suck. Works like a charm. Better than pins perforating your domes, high powered vacuums detaching voice coils, or left tape residue on your domes.
Unsound, what a great idea. I've often worried if the vacuum cleaner would put to much suction on the dust cap.
I would have never thought of the paper towel roll.
Sometimes, just warming them up with a hair dryer helps.
Yes, listen to unsound. He gives sound advice.
Vacuum cleaner works great if you have a variable suction valve on the hose.

Unsound has a good idea also.

. . . um, . . . wouldn't that be UN-unsound advice?
Bdgregory, Are you saying Unsound's advice sucks?
Buy your child physician supply toy case with trumpet shape sethoscope that you can use more efficient for suction. For woofers you'd probably need to buy brass instrument depending on size of woofer:-). I think this problem could repeat in the future. My kids did that several times to woofers. My tweeters are covered with metal grid so no possibility for kid to push it. For woofers I used duct tape to bring them back.
hmmm, I didn't mean to imply that at all. Sorry, I guess my feeble attempt at humor wasn't well thought out.
Bd. I thought your humor was quite good. I've learned that if you attempt humor on these threads, some people always take it the wrong way. That's why I quit trying.
I thought it was funny.

naah! you're having trouble comprehending! ;-)
un-unsound = sound 'cuz it's a double negative. get it?.....
Your in a world of hurt!!
You may have a problem with the mids. The wire leads look like they may be in the way and prevent a good seal to get suction to work properly. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
I'd bet the cardboard tube will still work. If not, I'm sure one could figure out a clever modification for the carboard tube.
Bdgregory, I was also making an attempt at humor since Unsound's idea requires sucking. Get it?

now I do, and it's hilarious. I guess I hadn't had enough coffee that morning - it went right by me.
Most soft domes don't require much suction to fix when pushed in, so the cardboard tube idea should work. If not, do what I have done with my Dynaudio tweeters: use your mouth. Not kidding. Just place your lips very gently over the middle area of the tweeter and suck gently. Just make sure to not drool. ;-)
Frogman, that works really well on tweeters, but you might need one of these to help with bigger drivers.
No.6 in particular should be very effective. All you would have to do is show the dented woofer a picture of No.6, and it would immediately fix itself, lest those lips get anywhere near it. might shrink up and withdraw.
