Why does a dent to a tweeter not affect sound quality?


Why does a dent to a tweeter not affect sound quality?  You see this statement all the time, when someone is selling an affected piece of used equipment. I’ve never understood it. Can somebody explain?

It usually does not affect the sound but it does show a lack of care and taking care of the speaker which can be worrisome.
Tubebuffer....that's about the craziest thing I've read on here...haha!
Whether the damage presents an audible difference or not, sellers of these damaged listings should expect to bear the depreciation, just as if they had any other damage (dinged corners, scratches, cat torn grills, surround dry rot, etc.) If it didn't matter, dealers would have no problem with potential customers poking in their tweeters for fun.
you can apply gentle suction (such as sucking through a cardboard toilet paper thingie) and pop it back out.  Whether it remains popped out is another matter.
That works with soft domes, but not metal.
