Removing a speaker grille is necessary for grille painting, cloth repair, or driver exchanges. Removing speaker grilles does not require a professional, however some care is required to prevent potential damage to either the speaker's drivers or the grille itself. Removing speaker grilles might be a necessity regardless of whether the speaker is in the wall, ceiling, or stand-mounted. Regardless of the type of speaker or circumstances necessitating grille removal, the process can be done without damage.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Bend a paper clip such that one tine is sticking straight out, forming an "L" shape.

  2. 2

    Insert the paper clip into a hole in the speaker grille, close to the edge. Be careful not to insert the clip too far or you could damage the driver beneath.

  3. 3

    Pull the clip forward, loosening the grille. Repeat the process at various points on the grille to loosen it evenly. If necessary, insert a small flat head screwdriver in between the bezel and grille to loosen it further.

  4. 4

    Pull on the corners of the grille frame, if the speaker is a conventional bookshelf or floorstanding model. Insert your fingers beneath the corners of the frame, and slide them down behind the grille to loosen the pins.
