The remaining two 7.5 mm Phillips-head screws are located on the base of the indented section of the speaker, pictured here. They are also hidden beneath black rubber covers.  Repeat same process in removing the screws.

  5. Additionally, the sides need to be taken apart. You will need to take out 4 additional 7.5 mm Phillips-head screws on either side.  These screws are located beneath larger grey pads with adhesive on them at the side corners of your speaker. Remove the pads slowly, as the adhesive makes them tougher to remove and you do not want to rip them.
