there are 2 clips to "open" with a flat head screwdriver on the L/R side of the vents...

yea, I tried getting this damn thing off before. No luck. And don't break it because it looks expensive. What are you trying to do?

Probably the same idea I had a few months back.

I am trying to put my center channel speaker somewhere back there. Since my HU covers those vents I don't use them anyway so I figure I could put my speaker there and put some use to that space. I don't even know if there is enough space behind them for a speaker though. Anyone tried this before?

well, sounds interesting. I was thinking of mounting a Tv screen above the vents and drilling a hole to run the wires.
