Question about Altec Lansing 221 Computer Speakers
I am trying to open the right speaker since the volume button is loose or broke. I took the metalic mesh off and unscrewed the 4 screws that hold the speaker but I can't pull it out and I don't want to force it. Is there another way to get to the inside of the speaker without damaging the case?
I dropped my speaker and the volume button got pushed into the speaker. I cut along the grey and black pieces and used a flat-head screw driver to break to 2 pieces apart. I fixed the button and super-glued the 2 pieces back together. Good as new.

This may help?
in between the bottom of the right speaker casing, theres two tones ( black and grey ). [personally i didnt care about the speakers seeing as how i got them for free.] i cut in between the two tones with a hand saw to make an opening. then used a flat head screwdriver to wedge it open which was pretty easy after an opening was created.
be wary of the volume knob cause in opening it, theres soldered wires underneath. good luck

Since u hav removed the mesh and the 4 screws that hold the case of the speaker .As you said that the speaker has no opening points , most companies manufacture the speaker by sandwiching two parts together. In order to open the case of the speaker , you will have to see for a joint line on the edges . it indicates the attachment between the two parts of the speaker . If you find an opening at the back of the speaker as you have mentioned , try to remove the two joints of the speaker by pulling gently at the opposite ends .
