Default i cant get my speakers out

I just got Infinity Kappas, 4x6 in front and 6x9 in back, i cant get the ones in front out because teh angle of the windshield and the way the speaker is "submerged" in the dash makes it so i cant get a conventional screwdriver in their. Ive also tried puting a right-angle attachment to unscrew it but theres just no space to work in. Am i going to have to take the dash apart?

look for different attatchements? Maybe it'* part of a bracket that releases without tools, and it screws into that bracket.

i know i have a socket set with a screw driver bit ratchet thing and you can take a 1/4 inch socket put it on the ratchet then put the screwdriver attatchment in the 1/4 inch socket. and then it'* only about 3/4 to an inch tall when you use it. i've used that to get to tight spots before.

As well do the screws have a hex head? Maybe you can get a small wrench in there or needle nose vise grips?

Thought of that too, but it turns out, it takes about 2 minutes to take off the dash. So i did that and it was a breeze to take out the speakers. I still had to use the angle attachment and also a universal joint attachment onthe guys close to the windshield. but mission success
