Question about Yamaha SW118-IV 18" Subwoofer Speaker
Please let me know how to remove the speaker from a Yamaha SW118 base cabinet. After removing the grille and the screws that go through the front of the speaker I tried to move the speaker itself. The speaker seems to be 'glued' to the cabinet. Is there a special way to remove it?
Often there is a gasket seal at the speaker/cabinet interface to keep any air leaks from happening. That seal can get pretty stubborn after time, or perhaps it was glued in with some type of glue. I'd be real careful with the "claw hammer" technique, you will likely honk up the cabinet, the speaker, or both. Use a razor knife carefully around the edge of the speaker and cabinet. If that will go into the crack, work your way around until you've freed up the speaker. Good luck and be careful!

Please take my response with a grain of salt for I only serviced subs from B&W and Harman International and Linn.
If there is no bolt directly opposite of the sub (very rare known as a basket tensioner). Then all you do it remove the screws then tap the box lightly with a rubber mallet and the driver will pop out. The foam rubber seal they use can really glue itself in there.
If the mallet doesn't move it then tap the metal rim of the basket lightly to free it up.
If it is like a Linn speaker and they actually silicone them in place them you have to thread an over sized screw into the hole to grab the basket then protect the face of the sub box with a cloth. Now use a claw hammer to rip the screw out and hopefuly the driver pops out with it.....these were a real pain.
Chances are its just stuck and needs a little tap to free it up.
Hope this helps!
