Sure you are programming the A speakers? Don't pull the speaker if you can pull the radio and check the harness. Another option is to turn it up and wait until you can get the unit to a sound store. They will get it resolved for less than the price to fix the damage you may incur and have to listen about, repeatedly, for a very long time, a very very long time. Or not!

If you can't see any fasteners for the grills, then they surely snap on to the speaker. But as was stated above that could bring on more grief than you want!
But I've never let that stop me!
I bought a set of non-marring (plastic) panel removal tools at Harbor Freight.
I would use one of those braced against a piece of thin masonite on the ceiling and give it a shot.
Good Luck!

Dude, use AAA battery at speaker wire ends, dont use anything larger as you will fry the speaker. Once you connect it you will hear humming or crackling.

Any source of very low voltage/low current will work. Even a 2032 round watch battery. No need for tone generators.

If you really need something with a tone, try one of the playing xmas cards. Just be careful, kids might start running your way they might think its an ice cream truck

Use a 9volt battery. Just brush the pos. and neg. wires across the terminals briefly and have someone listen to the crackle at the speaker end. I've used this many times in car audio systems. Just touch them intermintently you will get an audible crackle at the speaker.

My understanding is that you have two speakers wired in series on each channel. There is NOTHING wrong with this and your radio can certainly handle the load with standard 4 ohm small automotive speakers. You don't see it much because you don't have any capability to fade between the speakers but there is NOTHING in that wiring scheme that would cause the failure of the speakers or radio.
I'm guessing a loose connection or a blown output transistor... possibly fuse protected? Assuming you tried listening with different sources.
If you hear a tone out of both speakers with the battery trick..get the radio checked out.

Thumbs up

OK, disconnected all the speaker wires and using a 9 volt found that the two rear speakers are not working. Guess if any speakers are blown then they all stop working if wired in series. So I just hooked the two front ones to the harness and they now work fine. So I guess I need to replace those two bad ones. When I get them replaced I will just wire those two to the "B" channel. This way I can just wire them in normally...
Thanks to all for the help. Still not brave enough to pull on the grills, but I guess it won't matter now that I know they are bad...

what are the chances??? Both speakers are good. Finally got the covers off without messing things up too bad. (need some glue for one ) Had to end up cutting loose the connections at the speakers themselves. Re-hooked them up with some new crimps and all is good. Crazy how both came loose at the same time... Glad it is working now!
