polk woodbourne disassembly

Hello, I have come upon a faulty woodbourne that powers up and plays music (bluetooth), but the sounds are distorted, like the speaker diaphragms are torn. I want to open it up and try to repair it, but i cannot seem to find any obvious ways to open it up. The little rubber feet under the unit dont seem to have screws under them, and i am not sure one should be prying open the fabric cover.

Any pointers? Thank you so much !

    Most likely will be concealed behind any stickers. There's probably also panels that click together

    there is a sticker at the bottom but i cant feel any screws under it. i tried sticking a pry tool (a spatula :-\) between the front panel and the wood but it doesnt make anything obvioulsy pop off.

    i stuck a thin spatula betweeen the wood and the back frame and with some pressure pried off the back fabric panel. Then there is a back board screwed on which exposes the electronics. Haven't gotten much further yet.
