OK guys. I was thinking out loud and before someone starts breathing in a paper bag haha,  a crochet needle would probably work?

Paper bag only if trying on my own speakers.  I’m not sure what you have in mind but I’d be concerned about poking a hole in the fabric on the way in and/or damaging the ring and fabric on the way out if it slips.

Here's a photo of the inside. The crochet needle at the edge right where the inner ring is should be just fine. Crochet needles are meant for fabric, and the inner ring will be fine trust me :)

Personally I would be comfortable doing it on MY speakers alone, but please just take the suggestion with a grain of salt.

Is the grill ring plastic or wood?

You know guys when I used the pinch the fabric as close to the edge as possible method, I had to hold the speaker from moving with my knee. They're on there that good. Just use your finger tips. It will take four or 5 very small incremental movements and it will be painful for a few seconds each time. I'm an old man haha so yeah everything is more painful.

I guess I'll add my 2 cents.  I have four dachshunds.  I know, the minute I remove the subwoofer covers (X3s), the dogs will go into "high" play mode and "crash" into one of the subwoofers.  Gotta keep them on for my own sanity.  I could remove the mid range cover but the WAF will object, as she has in the past.

So, better sound or not, the covers in my situation, stay on.

Nothing wrong with that. They do look sooo dang good with the grills on. I'm kicking around the idea of replacing the grill fabric with something more sheer?
