how to remove a woofer from b@w801n

I am from the Philadelphia area and would like to send my woofers to Miller Sound.  for renovation . in order to do it I  need to remove them from the cabinet . my question  is it hard shall I get a technician to do it or shall I do it myself thx in advance 


I watched/helped a tech remove my 801N woofers.  The driver is held in by the perimeter screws, and there is a paper gasket around the edge.  IIRC the connectors are not hard-wired.  Removal is much easier with the speaker laying on it's back.  The screws are removed and a bent or curved pick (or maybe a screwdriver) can be inserted into a screw hole to pry the driver up enough to grasp with your fingers.  I recommend having a helper especially if removal is tried with the speaker standing up.

Not difficult but take your time and be careful...


I replaced a driver in a B&W 803. Remove the screws. Unplug the connectors. Easy peasy.
