The speakers are technically accessible from the outset, but the process is no fun:

Peel up the copper tape soldered to the antenna assembly—as mentioned above, the copper is nicely reinforced, improving this procedure.

Disconnect the connectors (the antenna interconnect cables are nicely labeled).

Carefully pry the speakers off the metal clips holding them to the rear case. This procedure requires more force than desired and risks damage to the speakers.

The speakers are conveniently two separate units, reducing repair costs. The antennas can also be peeled up off the speakers with some effort.

There are some unprotected portions of copper tape that may rip or deform during the swap, but the procedure is still an improvement over the last generation.
