    Hi, i have took the screws out of the Z5500 subwoofer, yet the grill still wont come off, is there any way to take the front grill off? would pushing somthing thin inbetween the gap and then pushing the grill do any good?

    is there any particular reason you actually want to remove the grill or is it just aesthetics?..heh

    you may find that the grill extends in to the surround cabinet and isnt really removable....

    quite likely the faceplate around the sides of the grill is glued on using industrial stuff....so it may not be advisable....

    other option is to get a pair of very thin long cutting pliers....and cut the grill out..lol..but be very careful not to stab the bass driver...heh

    Yea i just want to remove it because i like to watch the sub when its at full swing. :p

    Awwww noo, so its not really removable ? :( i dont want to cut the grill out, and i am sure other people have managed to remove the whole grill thing withought cutting the metal out, check the videos in the videos section/logitech on realm of excursion, i am sure some of the z5500 subs there have the grilld tottaly removed and not cut.

    I dont think the actual metal grill bit extends into it because if you look down the small gap you can see, its just were the screws are by looks of it i think.

    Someone said to use a hairdryer to remove the grill once, that did not work :(

    Hair dryer would be good if it was glued to the box as the heat off the dryer will heat up the glue and make it easier for the grill to come off.
