I cannot take apart a clatronic speaker

Hi!

I toppled one of my speakers that sit on a stand, and the can that keeps it upright on the stand broke, so now I need to get in there and fix it.

Here is a pic of the bottom, where you can see the broken bit inside. There are no screws under the white felt dots.

Here is the back; you can see the holes for the two screws.

And just in case, here are the front and top:

Top:

I have tried pulling rather hard and also using a screwdriver as a lever (you can see that I've broken the plastic in a couple of places in the "Front" picture).

Any ideas about how to take this one apart?

Cheers

SOURCE: how do i open the speaker to reconecct the wires inside?

It may not be only wires loose; the speaker(or speakers) may be damaged.

The common 'dynamic' speaker has a centered magnet in an assembly that extends the field of the magnet around a coil of wire on a form called the 'voice coil' that is firmly attached to the cone which moves in and out to 'pump' air and produce sound.
The clearances (gap) between the magnet assembly and the voice coil that sits in a narrow space between the magnet and the outer field piece is very small and critical.

Once positioned in the factory, glue is used to keep the field assembly from slipping and rubbing against the voice coil.

A strong shock will break the glue bond and, if severe enough, clamp the voice coil so it cannot move freely any more.

Since the Bose is a quality product, the cabinet may be assembled with glue and screws that are concealed.

If you know someone with a simple multimeter, they may be able to check at the terminals to see if there is any continuity from the terminals to the speaker.
If it doesn't have any, then perhaps only a wire is broken between the terminals and the speakers.
There is with high probability also a filter inside that separates the frequency range and sends the signal to separate speakers that produce different ranges of sound.

to go over a mushroom headed screw already secured in the door
tap the old broken handle down the door and it will pop off the screwhead
then
set the new handle sideways on the door, top end out into empty space, and pull it into place on the screw head,
rotate the handle top over the door and screw it into place, dont flex the handle much to twist it in place, they are brittle, and break

SOURCE: AR1 Subwoofer Keeps Blowing the 5 Amp Fuse

I had the exac same issue. It started out with buzzing sound, but then quickly evolved into blowing the main 250V 5 Amp fuses immediately. I sent mine to ABTechservices.com and they found some blown resistors and leaking capacitors. I'm waiting to get it back (shipping to me now), but supposedly they have replaced and tested and all is working well. I'll let you know how it turns out.

The price they charged me, including return shipping was $187.50

One Speaker no longer works, its the one that plugs into the other, is it broken for good? or is there a way to take it apart and fix it?


Hi !
Most of the time there isn`t any problem with the speaker but with the cable connecting the 2 speakers .Try to listen some music and move the cable a little and maybe you`ll hear the sound coming out from the dead box .
The cable is not that hard to be replaced but you will need a new cable and a soldering tool, ( or someone who has one )
But the majority of the people are just buying a new set a speakers when one brokes because these are one of the cheapest parts that can broke on a computer...same for the mouse or keyboard , a good specialist can still fix it but it doesn`t worth it if you can afford new ones.

Replacing the diaphragms on the eon power 15


Yes - Simply face the speaker down - unscrew all of the screws (don't forget to remove the handle and the 2 under it) - once they are all lose, carefully stand the speaker upright and gently pop apart - as it is opening you will need to disconnect some wire harnesses and will need to undo the ground wires. DONE

How do you take the front cover off. There are two screws at the


If you are talking about the front cover that contains the speaker grilles at the bottom of the unit, then there are two screws on each side of the unit. These are both at the rear of the cover on each of the sides. Undo these and remove them.

The cover is then held on by Velcro in the front centre of the panel, so you need to pull it off carefully to break the grip of the Velcro. If the TV is on the Hitachis stand then you will need to push the TV backwards off the stand by about 4 inches to give room for the cover to come off. Be carefull when moving the TV backwards off the stand that it does not topple over backwards.

Hi 1 2fade,

The market in Motorcycles, especially Harley Davidson pushes for helmet speakers. You cannot possibly get good sound when riding with externally mounted speakers. Only when sitting at an event will give you decent sounds. You probably already know this. I suggest pioneer Marine grade equipment, and a premium brand of Marine grade. I also suggest you gett a Helmet set so you can enjoy great music while riding if you dont already have it.

Logitech Z-5500 Speaker stand problem


The stand was held on with a nut on the inside. There is not longer a nut on the inside of the hole, so there is now nothing for the stand screw to attach to. The nut is now stuck to the magnet on the speaker. You will need to disassemble the speaker housing to remove the nut from the speaker magnet and reattach then stand. peace. Paul.
