    Default How to remove the grill covers from the LSi15 woofer?

    I'm thinking about replacing the 8" sub driver on my LSi15's and can't seem to easily remove the grill cover to get a look at them. I don't want to damage the grill or (especially) the wood cabinet, so can anyone give me a tip on how to get them off?

    Thanks.

    Go to your local tool/automotive store and ask for a pick.

    Something like this: http://stores.homestead.com/nicolecl...talog/pick.JPG

    I have something comparable to that. So just gently work the outside of the grill to work it up? There's just not much of a lip to work with -- maybe only about 1/8" -- sticking up from the wood cabinet. Does it take much to get it off, or just have to give it a little help?

    Thanks for the help.

    It may need a little help the first time. Just take your time.
