    Welcome to the forums...
    Try using a vaccum with the attachment, should suck the tweeter back out. Don't use the brushes on it.

    Won't the vaccum be a bit much on the tweeter?

    I second that - might rip the entire face of the tweet right off. I'd email or call Polk CS and ask them first.

    I'd start with a straw, or leave it alone.

    Try this first, with your fingers, gently push on the area around the dimple. That should pop it back in place. It doesn't hurt the tweeter if you touch the material.
    The vac trick will work, you just need to be very careful as you bring the hose close to the tweeter,use your hand as a buffer.

    Very simple...

    First unscrew the tweeter and driver assembly holder and
    twist the magnet of the tweeter clockwise to separate
    each other to open, now you can push back the dome in its
    original position. :)

    It is very simple. You don't have to worry, trust me;)

    All newer tweeters made by Polk are very simple to open. No ,more screws... just twist clockwise and its open.

    Unlike SL2000, 2500, 3000 you have to open it with screwdrivers
    to separate the dome and the magnets.

    I'd fix all the tweeters of my SRT's they have all dimples. Now they
    look good, no marks or anything like that;)

    CS400i and SRT's and all RT's tweeters are look a like, they have the same type of assembly very simple to open.
