Question about Bose Acoustimass 15 System
How can i put back together the two array cube speakers, the clip thats suppose to hold them together keeps on getting inside the top cube speaker and i cant push it down to the other one to make it lock into place.
I had the same problem.
Step one: pop of the grille with a screwdriver or knife inserted from the bottom so that any marks will be hidden when you get the two halves back together.
Step two: If the speaker is held in by screws, you are lucky. Just unscrew the speaker and remove it. If the speaker isn't held into the case by screws, it is a newer model that is glued to the back cover / box. You can separate the glue with a bread knife or thin screwdriver (I used a paint scraper and thin screwdriver). Be careful to work around all four sides. Also, there is a small (about 1/4" long) plastic bump in the center of each of the four sides that clips into a matching groove in the speaker, so you will have to spring apart at least two adjacent sides at the same time to release the speaker from the cover easily.
Step 3: Once you have the speaker out, remove the acoustic sponge, and sit the bottom half on a solid table. Make sure the rubber gasket between the speakers is seated properly and note the position of the 3 notches in the hole of the bottom speaker cover. Place the top speaker cover in place and insert the white plastic 3 pronged clip though the the hole so that the prongs match the notches. Press down hard with two thumbs and it should snap into place.
Step 4: Replace the sponge and push the top speaker back into the cover. Replace the screws if you had them. Otherwise you can glue it again but the clips are quite solid if not damaged by the removal so you can save some effort the next time it happens by leaving it unglued, and just snapping the speaker into place.
Step 5: push the grille back on.

Take the cover off bottom cube (should have the BOSE tag)
unscrew the 4 screws holding speaker in place
GENTLY pry out speaker out
(having a helper to hold speakers and resembly is helpful)
put bottom cube on level surface and push up on plastic clip
and slide down the 2 o rings into place on bottom cube
find the outer notch on plastic clip and line it up to notch on
the upper cube and press upper cube down into bottom cube clip - rotate it slighty until it clicks into place
replace the 4 screws and snap on cover done!

HI you need to hold the clip in place with a strong narrow long device such as: scissors, tweezers..... and then push them together a coupla of tries and you'll make it good luck
