Help removing Trunk wall mounted subwoofer.

I just bought some LED tail lights and I went to install them but ran into an issue. The previous owner had a subwoofer installed like this:

Does anyone know how to remove this so that I can get the driver side tail light installed, also so I can try and see whats wrong with the sub since it doesnt even work. Thanks.

Most likely, they mounted it through the inside of the box, so the only way to remove it is to remove the subwoofer from the box first. Carefully remove those 10 screws and pull out the sub. You should be able to remove the box after that. It may be obvious why the subwoofer doesn't work when you actually remove it from the box and look at it. From the looks of the grill on it, it's pretty obvious that it wasn't cared for too well, haha. I'd expect to find a ruined sub, but you may get lucky and it could just be a loose wire. Either way, you'll need to remove the subwoofer from the box.

So I got the sub off and only thing I saw inside was the little metal nub in the picture. Should that twist off and free the box?
