Insert a plastic opening tool in between the edge of the device's screen and its back cover. Once the tool is wedged between the glass and back casing, move the tool around the edges of the device to undo the plastic clips holding the casing attached. Inserting the tool and prying off the back casing requires a good deal of force. If you're having trouble undoing the clips, try using a suction cup on the screen to increase separation with the back casing.

As more clips are undone, it will become easier to further separate the device from its casing. Once you're able to separate roughly half of the device from the back casing, use your hands to gently pull the back cover off of the device. Don't forget: after creating some separation between the device and back case, you can use a suction cup attached to the screen to aid in pulling the device apart.

Locate the speaker in the top right corner of the back casing. Use a pair of tweezers to pull peel up the film connecting the speaker to the case. Locate the speaker in the top right corner of the back casing. Use a pair of tweezers to pull peel up the film connecting the speaker to the case.

Then what? How does this fix the problem? Can I tweek the speaker? Do I buy a new, more powerful speaker? What is your point in this post?

@Janet Sorry I know you probably wont even see this, but its to help those who wish to replace a broken speaker, its not about implanting a 9” subwoofer. Sorry but sometimes the simplest of explanations will often answer your questions.
