I also own MH=505 & was able to open up the sub-woofer by re=installing the 4 corner plate screws about 1/2 way ,then using a finishing claw hammer VERY lightly use the claw under the screw heads & lightly pry gradually on the screws until free.USE extreme in doing so as the amp ,circuit board is also included. Happy Motoring ,hope you fix your rallle....Regina Ca

The only way in is to take out the four big screws around the edges, 5 screws in the heat sync and then remove the base level knob and take off the hex nut and washer holding that on. Then presto your inside.

Check under the stickers, sometimes screws are hidden under rubber feet, and stickers. If there is a sticker you can rub it with your finger and feel if a hole is under it. Just look at how the rest of the screws are. If you have taken out 5 in the corners and a sticker or a rubber pad is in the last corner chances are its under that one. Also sometimes they use a rubber seal to create an air tight seal in the box. Sometimes this seal can be a little tacky and you need to pull on it a bit before it pops loose. If your sure there can be no more screws then it maybe stuck

How to open the subwoofer unit? There is something lose inside and I don't know how to open it. And I can't find the service manual on internet.

particular model may please be mentioned.

In general, there is two types of packaging

1. The bottom or the back or the front will have screws, you can unscrew and that's it.

2. Some sub-woofers are factory sealed, that means all their panels are glued shut. Now here's the problematic part. Usually you can't open a glued shut sub-woofer without inflicting some cosmetic damage. You may put scratches on it or vice versa.

Still if it is very essential, you may have to use some thin and flat object like a praying knife or a flat head screwdriver. Use them with caution as applying too much pressure at wrong angels may result into ricocheting into your hand / fingers.

Sound only coming from 3 of 6 speakers

A 5.1 sound card will give output in all channels only if the audio being played is also 5.1.

Normally out of 6 Speakers only 2 front and sub woofer will play sound, in case of a DVD or Movie which has 5.1 encoding, all 5 will come alive.

Also, Dolby Prologic II and Dolby Digital will convert a 2 channel input into psudo 5.1 enviornment but Dolby has to be in hardware or speakers or Receiver.

One speaker wont work

if u have experience with the soldering of the terminals then you can open the speaker casing of the sub woofer and then solder the right speaker input wire.

dont do this if you have no previous experience and DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY before doing any work inside.

Sub Woofer Stopped working

You know what happened to mine?

I tried to shove it behind a five-drawer file cabinet and managed to crack the circuit board inside because the power cable torqued the socket inside.

I was able to shove a tiny piece of 14-gauge wire inside and bridge the disconnect between the solder joint of the center lead and one of the metal terminals of the switch; now my speakers are working again!

Shorted Sub-woofer

try this site first; but it sounds as if something has fried in the amp - if you look inside you may well see some burning marks around some of the components. Another possilility is that the cable being pulled out pulled something inside the speaker that has damaged the cone or more likely the power supply , but the symptoms you describe suggest an amplifier issue, possibly caused by damage to the power supply system. Hope this helps :)
