Polk never disappoints!,
This review is from: Polk Audio RC60i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair, White) (Electronics)
Bought as ceiling surround-rear drivers for a 7.1 home theater. Very good timbre for such a price point. Good match for Polks RTi series. Be careful removing the steel grilles. DO NOT do what Polk suggests by using a paper clip. I did and spent time with a body-buck and hammer flattening out the distortion the paper clip caused. You might as well use an axe! There are four clamp-screws that need to be accessed from the front. Use these four screws to gently push the grill out from behind. Once you get the grill out a quarter-inch, you can peel it out the rest of the way from the front. Hope this prevents the a little aggravation. Buy these speakers.

After reading many tips on removing the grilles we decided to try yours first and it worked beautifully!! Took all of 30 seconds and no damage at all. I was so impressed that I sent Polk an email with the tip we found in a customer review. Thanks William!

Thank you William for the tip on removing the grille. I wonder why Polk doesn't mention this in their manual. This is by far the easiest and safest way to remove the grille.
