im going to try that next. The sub is new though I dont want to scratch it. I tried the toilet paper roll thing with no luck.

I looked online and on cars they do the heat up with hair dryer, then cool it with a electronics duster upside down. Makes sense but not sure if I want to try it with the difference in metal on the sub.

no but you could seal the vents in the basket with tape it doesn't have to be air tight just enough to build pressure, might crease if you have a big dent though
