Hi ejthedjnycli,

The grills are pressure fit. There's no special tools or tricks to make it easier to remove them. You might find it easier to get at the middle grille if you remove one of the side grilles first. 

Go slowly.

If you damage the grilles, unfortunately that's not covered under warranty, but you can get replacements from Bose Support.

They are easy enough to remove. Get something long and push out at the edges making sure you don't damage another grille doing it. They are held in with rubber seals which can be tight the first time they are removed..

I had a similar experience so got my wife to modify the front of the Music Store covers to include a thin sheet of protective plastic. No dents after that.

They are beautiful speakers but easily damaged at the front unfortunately.
