Default Dust Cap Removal

I've been searching everywhere for a tutorial on how to remove the Dust Cap from a JL Audio w7. Bought a 12 cheap for the opportunity to learn how to fix. Any input is much appreciated. Thank you.

I'm fairly sure they have dust caps. About 85% certainty. Some margin for error. Lol

JL uses what they call a W cone on the W7, the whole cone is basically an inverted dustcap.

Best picture i could find in a quick image search but you should be able to get the gist of it.

Looks like I should be able to take off just the outer cover. Replace the surround while I'm at it.

Still sounds good. Just ugly as hell.
