First, just get the speaker's electrical/signal connector 
unplugged--then later worry about removal and/or replacement (since 
we know that a squawking Bose speaker is a possible fire-hazard.) To 
unplug the speaker you need to locate a round connector in the wiring 
harness near the speaker amp; it's visible and reached from inside 
the trunk--lying uncomfortably on your back, of course. Should take 
about 30 seconds.

I've unplugged both my rear speakers (even though they're working 
OK)--just as a precaution. I've now gotten used to the absence of 
rear speakers. Karl Marx's perceptive remark about religion also 
applies to car stereos, IMHO.
