      Anybody have any suggestions as how to get a speaker out thats stuck in a box?

      Maybe a tool that works well.

      I dont want to damage the front of box. 

      Port hole too small to really get in there.

      I think the paint/clearcoat has a hold of them.

      They are flush mounted 6″, 7″ and 8″

      Do you have a set of picks? Preferably one(s) with an angled point? You can get them at any hardware or Walmart type of store, even Harbor Freight. I got mine from a buyout store called Ollie’s Bargain Outlet.

      You put the angled end in through a screw hole and hook the backside as best as possible, and lift very carefully, preferably away from the surround so as not to damage it if you slip. You should be able to get them out that way.

      Or, if you can find a machine screw that will thread into the hole in the frame, you can do the same thing.

      Both those ideas look promising. Thanx. I guess I will head to the hardware store.

      @sb-woo Hope you get the drivers out safely and unharmed. Fingers crossed! (but not my eyes, I need to see. 🤣 )

      @sb-woo Another thing you can try is to loosen the screws and play some bass heavy music through it.  See if you can have the internal pressure break the seal for you.

      @sb-woo 

      Another idea.  You need to be careful with it.  But if you have a small punch or something similar.  You can unscrew all the screws and put the punch in one of the screw holes.  Angle it so you are punching the side of the screw hole.  I would angle it down on one of the side screw holes.  Hit it with a hammer and see if you can get the driver to turn.  If you can, it should break the seal and allow you to pull it out. Just be careful not to slip with the hammer or punch.  If you do, you could ruin your woofer.

      Were you able to get it out?  How’d you end up doing it?

      So, I bought some bolts and screwed them into the driver and managed to pull one out. I ill try this for the rest of my speakers.
