Hi, The hole that was cut for the tweeter is holding the magnet. It was tight going in. And hard to get out. Take a flat screwdriver and pry up one of the edges a little. Then go to opposite side and pry up a little bit. You may need to put something in the gap of the first side you pry up so it doesn't go back in. Once you have both sides up a little bit. You should be able to grab ahold of it with your fingers and remove it. May have to move it back and forth .
In case you mean the passive version with the ribbon speakers take a look at this link.

Well, that is pretty dependent on the room size and seating position. Ideally the center channel should be directly under the TV. This is where 90% of the dialog will come from. The two tall speakers should then be placed adjacent to the TV, preferably a couple of feet away. The smaller surround sound speakers should be approximately ear level, to slightly above and behind the viewer. The surround speakers are bipolar, so they will radiate sound out of each side, therefore you do not need to "angle' them towards the listener. The sub woofer doesn't really matter, the bass frequencies are non-directional. I like to hide it under a table or something like that.
Some new receivers have built in surround set up programs that will send a test signal to each speaker and "listen" then adjust the delay and volume accordingly. Without that it will take some trial and error to get any system dialed into the perfect settings. Then what may be ideal for one specific location will sometimes not sound as good from another in the same room.
Unfortunately it does sounds like there has been a system overload. Your speaker is an active system meaning it has its own power unit inside. Somewhere in the internal amplifier there has been a circuit burned. I have copied the link to the contact page for the stereo repair search website. If you will do a search for your state information, this site will locate a repair service near you.
It does sound like it may be blown but most likely you can have it rebuiltor reconed check local listings for speaker repair or audio repair and so on. I have a repair shop here in town which is Denver. Also keep in mind that a repair shop may not use a high quality parts to complete the repair. New may be better. One more thing if you know how to use a multi meter try OHM testing the woofer check to see what the rated OHM's are and also test with it powerd up and powered off. Hope this helps. If so please leave feedback.
One mistake many peoples make when it come to surround sound is that they don't hook up the right pole from receiver to speakers. Every receiver is very sensitive when it come to connecting the speakers correctly. make sure their are some kind of marking on the wires letting you know that is the positive line and no marking would be negative. hooking the wrong pole can short circuit the unit or burn it out quickly or work poorly. check your speakers connection making sure it has a good connection. check your rca jacks making sure they are good rca jacks connect to and from your systems. First I would check the wires making sure speakers connected to the wright pole from and to receiver, second check all the jacks making sure they are all good. Bad or blown speakers will also cause the rattling noise. test each speaker by using one good out put channel and swapping each speaker making sure they are not blown this way you can eliminate the speakers are bad or good. If everything check out than your receiver is defective, actually local electronic repair shop can test the unit if its out of the warranty.
Some high end speakers have a fuse to protect the tweeter (treble). Reverse the speakers. Does the problem follow the suspected speaker? If so, the defect is most likely on the crossover inside the speaker.
