Painting Mission m73i cabinets & disassembly?


Standard Member

I'm picking up a pair of Mission m73i's on the weekend, and plan to re-finish them in white to match my setup. Just trying to get some info prior to them arriving, has anyone else tried removing the speakers from the unit? They are in a plastic bezel, so hoping this is either screwed in or just tightly pressed in place and not glued in!

Well I've only ever opened speaker once as a hands on experience but from what I've seen, most speakers are actually quite simply assembled. I doubt the bezel will be glued on though as I bet they're simply screwed in from the back side but I can't be certain. Even if they were glued I imagine gentle heat up from a heat gun could make the glue come off or at least soften it ?

Yeah i'm hoping that's the case! Will take some pics before/during/after and post them up if it goes to plan :)
