Outdoor speaker question

Question for anyone who has worked on or replaced their outdoor marine speakers: Does that center grille pop or pry out? Or must you remove the four screws and the entire outer plate to get at the speaker?

Apparently the slightly decorative foil cone in the center detached from the cone over the winter. All it needs is a dab of hot glue... but heck if I can find how to get that grille off!!

(Was hoping I wouldn't have to do the entire outer plate, which would break the sealant and all that good stuff.)

Thanks!

Mine just pry out with a pocket knife. Nothing holding the grill in place but friction.

If you want to get to the back, the screws must be removed.

Must be a helluva lot of friction. Broke the blade, and now have two small screwdriver notches in the plastic. This thing isn't budging. Damn. A 50 cent fix, but I can't get to it. Frustrating.

Thank you. That worked like a charm. Speaker fixed.

What did you replace your speakfer with? Reason I ask is because I think I have 1 that is bad and may be looking to replace/upgrade them.

I have had problems with corroded connections on the back of both of my outdoor speakers.

Check that before changing them.

speakers

Luckily I didn't have to replace the whole speaker. (TT is 1 year old). Just the foil cone in the middle was not stuck where it belonged after the winter. Popped the cover per the video above, then hot glued the foil back to the center of the cone. Done (for now. I hope.)

I picked up a BLUE TOOTH Speaker from WALMART and was very much impressed with the quality. I can carry this speaker anywhere inside or outside and it really sounds nice...

The one i got runs on rechargeable batteries...

Turned out to be a great PLAN B thing for us...

Welp, I tried this trick and ended up breaking the freakin' grille cover!!

So now do I replace the whole speaker, grill and all? In addition to the 4 screws, it looks like they sealed it with white silicone. Will I need to cut through the silicone to remove it? And what size speaker do I need?
