For an alternative sort of tedium, the job _can_ be done from above. 
It requires many, many partial turns of a 10 mm (or was it 8 mm?) 
wrench to remove the 4 nuts holding each speaker. A normal 1/4" drive 
socket will not fit. If doing it again I'd buy one of those box-end 
ratchet wrenches--possibly the offset kind. This would make the job 
relatively easy, IMO.

But when you're all finished,  have you just installed somebody 
else's old Bose speakers--with the same possibility of combustion? :-(
