I recently acquired a pair Olympus (8SR) speakers.The 075's are located on the left side of each enclosure.Would it make sense to move one of the 075's in order to mirror image them? And if so what is the safest way to remove the LE 15 and PR 15 from the baffle board?....the cork(at least it appears to be cork) between the speaker frame and the baffle is acting as a fairly strong adhesive. Would a flat blade knike, such as a putty knife, with a gentle nudge from a hammer, help separate the speaker from the baffle?The drivers are refusing to budge after romoval of all mounting bolts. As far as I know none of the drivers have been removed from the enclosure since they were built.:banghead::banghead:

It makes eminent good sense to mirror image Olympus.

I use a painer's "5-in-one" tool with a tapered blade to break the drivers loose.

A hammer may be required. Once it's loose at one point, it's usually free all around and the cork remains intact....
