Center Speaker / Vent - Bolt retrieval


New member
Hi Everyone

I am reaching out to see if anyone else has had a mishap as I did.

In trying to confirm a crackling speaker, in a bad mood, I dropped a socket tool into the air vent behind the center speaker.

Has anyone else done this and knows the best way to retrieve?
I've not dropped one down there, but a borescope (cheap from amazon) and an extension flexible telescopic magnet tool (amazon) will do the trick...

2nd the borescope, the one I use (cheap Bunnings model) comes with a hook and magnet extension to help in such situations.
