Helpful comment on this video:
- This is great, thank you. The single driver is a 3.5-inch diameter, seems like it is held won by a pair of bolts and cross-bars, sort of hard to get to those without the right tool, as space seems to be quite tight. Would love to see how those get removed, also if there is soldering involved or if the audio cables have a metal tip and simple slide on and off the speaker's connections.
