    Just installed the 25-31 PC+ and the top metal grill doesn't want to come off. How do you take this off to install port blocker plugs....I think this thing is more potent than a single VTF3...SVS guys were right!!!

    Mike, I had trouble with mine at first. The ENTIRE outer metal ring (grill included) comes off, not just the grill itself. I tried to remove just the grill at first and failed miserably. Luckily I didn't damage anything.

    You have to grip the ring with your fingers in several different spots to locate the easiest spot to start prying it up. Once you find the "sweet spot", the ring will come up slowly at first, with considerable effort, and then it will suddenly "let go" and fly up, so be careful and be ready to catch it if necessary.

    I ran a 1/12 octave sweep from 10-100 Hz on my 20-39PC+ with all ports open, and 2 ports open, and plotted the results. It was very informative and fun to see the difference in the FR. If you want the 41 MP3 files, let me know.
