Re: HOW DO I REMOVE THE COVER TO BOSE ACCOUSTIMASS 15?
Your speakers are more than likely similar to my Pioneers. To do any work on them you have to very gently, with a tiny screwdriver, pry of the metal speaker grill evenly all the way around. If this is the case, take you time and be very patient as to not bend the grill. They are put in tightly so the sound doesnt shake them lose. At the service centers they usually just install new grills. Hope this helps. Steve

Headphone speakers stop functioning properly when the wireconnections to the speaker are broken. This problem often develops when theheadphone cord gets jerked while being worn. The solder connection might alsodetach over time if it was not properly manufactured. The wire can bereconnected to the speaker with a soldering iron to repair the headphone. Beaware, though, that headphones are not designed to be user maintained in thisfashion. In some cases, it is difficult to get to the speaker due to the casingdesign.
Instructions and tools needed
Screwdriver or butter knife (depending on headphone design),Soldering iron, Electrical solder
1 Plug in the solderingiron. It takes a few minutes for it to get warm enough to be used.
2 Unscrew the screws holdingthe headphone casing over the speakers. This step applies only to models thatuse screws in the casing.
3 Insert the end of the butterknife into the seam on the headphone ear pieces. Pry the two halves of thecasing apart. This step is performed only on headphone models that do not usescrews in the casing.
4 Touch the tip of thesoldering iron to the electrical solder. A small drop should melt onto the tipof the iron.
5 Touch the tip of the soldering iron to the end of thedetached speaker wire inside the headphone speaker cavity. Try to get an evencoating of solder around the exposed metal end of the wire. The soldersolidifies on the wire once the soldering iron is removed.
6 Touch the end of the wire tothe solder on the metal tab attached to the speaker.
7 Touch the tip of the solderingiron to where the wire and tab connect. The heat of the soldering iron meltsthe solder on the wire and tab together. This repairs the broken connectionbetween the wire and speaker.
8 Replace the speaker casingonto the headphone. It should snap back into place for models without screws
rca jacks by design separate possitive and negative. not sure what you are trying to do but make sure that you are not trying to hook up the bose speakers directly to your reciever, you will blow them.
Ya, here is a diagram I made of my Acoustimass 10 IV input cable. All you need is a female 15-pin d-type connector and a bunch of speaker cable (also one RCA connector for sub connection). Here's my diagram:
the solenoid i think your looking for is inside the side cover of the transmission but you werent specific with which solenoid your looking for, there are a few solenoids in the transmission. its not a job for beginners and its difficult to get to on floor jacks. i will try to explain the process as i've done it before.
READ WHOLE THING FIRST BEFORE ATTEMPTING REPAIR
1. safely jack the front of the vehicle up and place on jack stands (make sure parking brake is on) and disconnect negative battery cable. 2. remove wheel on drivers side 3. remove caliper, bracket, and rotor 4. remove axle nut 5. unbolt tie rod end 6. unbolt lower ball joint 7. unbolt sway bar end link and remove axle 8. support engine with jack and a piece of wood 9. unbolt air pump and transmission mount 10. unbolt subframe on drivers side carefully 11. LOOSEN do not remove subframe bolts on passenger side so the subframe drops a little bit on the drivers side 12. look on top of the engine bay and remove air box and tubes 13. remove or move anything else in the way of the top side cover bolts 14. disconnect transmission connector 15. remove transmission side cover bolts (you may need to loosen passenger side subframe bolts a little more to gain access to the lower 3 or 4 bolts, also fluid will come out so have a catch pan ready) 16. remove side cover carefully (might have to loosen the subframe bolts a little more even to get the cover out) 17. locate the solenoid you are replacing (there are a few diff ones) 18. remove solenoid and replace solenoid. 19. make sure to replace the side cover gasket and the seal around the axle hole 20. reverse the process for re-installation.
before you attempt this repair make sure for certain that the solenoid you are looking for is in fact located inside the side cover. the instructions i typed are for solenoid replacement in the transmission but you didn't specify which one so don't hold me responsible if these directions arent for the solenoid your looking for.
On the end opposite of the jacks (top of the sub opposite connectors) in the exact middle, there is a ratchet looking device (flashlight and magnifying glass reveal the little culprit) with a very small flat screw driver rotate the piece CCW until a small tab is protruding from the middle. Pu the palm of your hand on the plastic case and give it a small whack (in the direction of the jacks) it will move about a 1.2 inch. Lift straight up and the case will come off and reveal the connectors. Trust me, get a flashlight and magnifying glass and peer through the small crack between the cover and the box, you will see the little notch (encoder looking) rotating wheel
It is in the sub woofer unit on the main board. Getting the cover off is half the battle. Opposite the input output side directly in the middle of the case there is a little locking mechanism to get the cover off. Use a small flat screwdriver and rotate it CCW until the little tab pokes right out at you. Then pop it (in the direction of the input/output jacks. I twill move about 1/2 to 3/4 inch, then just lift staight up. You can see the fuse on the other side of the board of what you will be staring at when the cover is off. Good luck
