The only way to remove them is to drill them out.

Have you used a drill before? Just get a drill bit and use it in a power drill and drill the metal pins out. Im not really sure how else to explain it. lol

Like I said before though, those speakers are just mids powered off the head unit. Any aftermarket speaker will sound almost exactly the same as the factory ones.

Yup these are only powered by the head unit. The monsoon systems amp is 2 ohm but if you look at the back of these it says 4 ohm because the head unit is the only thing that powers them.

Still gonna replace them since I think there blown and I already have replacement speakers for them. The 4" mid ones are the only ones I don't have already. Didn't pay an arm and a leg to get the 6.5" ones either so it doesn't bother me much.
