Thanks for the responses and the previous threads regarding the removal of a b&w 802 woofer. I was able to successfully remove the bottom woofer via suggestions from members of Audiogon. It wasn't easy.
First I purchased for under $10 a automotive pick and hook set of small tools and removed the top woofer it came out somewhat easy. Then I was able to push on the bottom woofer from the inside but to no avail.
So, I took a 9 inch C clamp and placed the top part on the magnet housing inside of the bottom speaker and then placed a thin piece of wood across the front of the speaker and tightened the clamp until the bottom woofer popped out.
To my dismay I discovered that both speakers are bad by comparing them to a new OEM B&W replacement. Now I'm in the search for another B&W 802 Nautilus woofer. Any help?
I also have been looking at companies that do speaker repair. Does anyone have any suggestions as who to use or maybe not use?
Thanks in advance
