Removing the fake wood vinyl

Does anyone have any particular expertise or advice on removing the fake wood vinyl on fake wood speakers?

You could try a hot iron and a paint scraper.

Heat gun, scraper, then you will need a solvent like GoofOff.

What's the plan after the vinyl is removed? - depending on the refinishing, you might not need to remove the vinyl at all.

My thoughts too Chris. Sometimes sanding and using a spray shellac will prep the surface depending on what's coming next.

I use one of those vibrasonic tools, peels off the vinyl like butter.
