Can’t figure out how to open this speaker. I removed the base but that didn’t help. Seems like the front pops off but didn’t despite a lot of pressure. I assumed it work if I hooked to amp but got nothing so I want to either replace or fix. Philco 211 Speaker

I don’t think the front pops off. I think the whole speaker assembly is removed from the back, after removing some screws. I saw some info about a restoration (in German) on radiomuseum’s website and the drive unit was sitting on its face, with the screw holes clearly visible. The whole unit seemed to simply lift out from the circular chassis.September 28, 2019 at 12:51 pm #12055
there’s no exterior screws and none visible when i removed the base and looked in through the bottomSeptember 28, 2019 at 1:38 pm #12056
Look in through the back. 🙂September 28, 2019 at 2:02 pm #12057
thanks for the help but if i saws screws don’t you think i’d have tried that already? there are no screws anywhere, not even when base is removed. back is solid metalSeptember 28, 2019 at 3:31 pm #12058
I’m just trying to help. Look at the attached picture.
The front face, on which the speaker is resting in this pic, is bigger than the hole through which the speaker sounds, so either the front comes off, or the back comes off. I do know that you can’t remove the speaker by working from below.
I have said that it might be the case that this chassis is liftable out from the back. You have tried to remove the front with no success. You have not commented on how it went when you tried to remove the back. I’m suggesting that you try that.

Again, there are no screws anywhere on front or back. there is no way to remove the back, look through the back, nothing. its like a cookie tin. and as i mentioned i tried to pry off, no luck. i included the radiomuseum link so people could see. i removed the base because that is the only screw there is and hoped i see screws to loosen to open it upSeptember 28, 2019 at 5:53 pm #12061
to those who have a similar question in the future, the front is rotated counterclockwise an inch or two then pops off
