Hi,

I have an old pair that I would like to use again. While they sound great and are a good match for the purpose, I really want them to be black. I would like to spray paint them, but cannot figure out how to remove the grills to mask the drivers. Anyone have any ideas on how to do that?

TIA,
Jay W

You will have to use something with a tip on it, similar to a cork
screw. Press in to the edge of the grill slightly, to get a grip - be
gentle when pulling back. Work your way around the edges of the
grill, till it comes off. Or try using a small hook or pick tool.

Hi,

I am in a similar situation and was wondering if you ever managed to remove the grill from your speakers.

Thanks

I'm a bit late. No, and now I'm back to trying figure it out again, 9 years later.

I have removed many grills and found that the tip of a dry wall screw used gently all around works for me. I also used a small screwdriver to act as a wedge. Tedious job.

Thank goodness magnetic grills are becoming norm.

Good luck
