So I have inbuilt speakers. And after a coup,ex of weeks of wondering why I could never get the radio on station properly I took the covers off and saw the the larger driver (about a 4" I guess) had split from the edge.

Now they're fully inbuilt and I don't see how I'd ever get them out. Do you think it's possible the drivers can be replaced without pulling the speaker off the wall.

What do you mean by "fully inbuilt" speakers?
Recessed into the wall?

Not completely recessed. Partially, but certainly to the point where you'd never get it down.

Do you mean the foam surrounds, or are the actual coils stuffed? I have got surrounds from these guys before http://qsr.net.au/ and fixed my 12" Dynaudio surrounds.

Click to see full size

Front view and sideish.

So it's the foam but I guess that holds it to the frame that is then mounted to the speaker cabinet.

Looks to me like the speakers can be removed from the box, from the front, by undoing the four screws.
Once out, disconnect the wires noting down which wire goes where, then you can search for suitable replacements or repair.

You may be able to have them repaired at Axent Audio in New Lynn http://www.yelp.co.nz/biz/axent-audio-products-auckland

Axent would be the place to have repaired but will be disproportionately expensive, if you are less worried about matching the exact drivers and just want to get these back to making some half decent noise, places line Jaycar and Surplustronics offer some very affordable replacement drivers

Those screws should come out and the speaker will come out.... just be careful as it will have years of wear so may stick to the mount and also may have a short cable back to the crossover.

I can see screws that can be undone to change the drivers
