To prevent damage to the box or sub use a right angle pick tool and insert it through one of the screw holes and lift till you can get your fingers under the sub.

Why would you need to pry the sub up once it's recessed/flush mounted and in place?

It works great man. I've been installing for 20 years and I've used this method forever. It doesn't matter how heavy the sub is, as long as your strong enough to pull it strait up and hold it there it will work.

I run HDDs currently as well.
