How do you remove JL Audio tower speaker

Gents-

Have an 08 X-35 with 4 JL's on the tower. One speaker is blown and need to remove/replace it. I specifically need to grab the part number off the back. It's in the cans with the lights in the front. I thought I could just remove grill and speaker would slide out but that's not the case.

So, how do I get the speaker out of the can?

Thanks,
Mike

Take the grill off and use a plastic pry tool to get the woofer out

Aric confirm i need to take the plastic tool and wedge it where the arrow shows on the outside of the speaker where it mates with the can? Do i do the same for the tweeter?

Thanks!

An easier way that I found, if you take the grill off, there will be some holes in the outside edge. They look like screws holes for the grill but don't line up with the grill. Screw one of the grill screws in to this hole, it will push the speaker out of the can. No prying required.

What a kick in the junk type of day! I love Texas for the following reasons:
1. Texas women
2. Texas BBQ
3. Shoot first ask questions later

What I hate about Texas.....

Snork- I haven't seen any pesky dobbers because i live in the panhandle of Florida. I bought the boat last spring from Texas. I believe the boat was "lift kept" so I'm sure they've been in there for a while. Such a mess they make of everything!
