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? :-(
