Installing In-Wall Speakers MP: Step3

Step 3

Removing the grilles from in-ceiling and in-wall speakers is easy if you know a couple of tricks.... Here they are:

Already-installed speakers:

  • Using an awl, insert the hook end of the awl into a hole of the grille (along the edge not in the center)
  • Pull firmly to raise the grille from its seat
  • Repeat at multiple positions around the edge of the grille until it pops off
  • To put the grille back on, press it firmly into place over driver until it is seated and flush

    Un-installed speakers:

  • Hold the speaker in your hands, grille-DOWN, over your lap
  • With your thumbs, swing out the white plastic mounting ears on the back of the speaker
  • Position your fingers under the white trim-ring/bezel around the front of the speaker
  • Press down on the extended plastic mounting ears
  • The screws of the mounting ears will press against the back of the grille. The grille will pop off into your lap
