Introduction

After you remove the back cover, you can see the insides of your device. Your speakers are the two rectangular pieces with a silver circle in the center of each of them. These rectangular pieces are easy to remove, you just have to pop them off. If you pull the cover off too far or too fast you might rip the speakers off of the motherboard.
