SOURCE: Bose Cube Speakers separated

Ok…

I had the same problem with a Bose separated double-cube Acoustimass speaker/array but was able to fix it as follows:

Tools:
small, thin, flat-head screwdriver
large pliers
C-clamp

Instructions:
1. Disconnect the speaker wires from the cube.
2. Remove the grille from the top speaker cube. It just pops off.
3. Insert a small, thin, flat-head screwdriver around the perimeter of the speaker. You will have to pry lightly to break the glue’s seal.
4. Using a set of pliers (large, plumber-sized) wiggle the speaker until it comes free. You might need to grip it top to bottom and then left to right. The speaker will come free of the case.
5. Remove the white insulation to get a clear view of the dislodged brace/connector.
6. Stack the top and bottom cubes. Make sure that the rubber seal between the cubes is seated properly and that the black and white cables are not pinched.
7. Using the C-clamp, compress the brace/connector until it seats on one side. Loosen the C-clamp and compress the opposite side. The brace/connector should snap into place. Be sure the make sure that you do not pinch the speak wires that are running through the center of the brace/connector.
8. Test the articulation. It should be the same as your other speakers.
9. Replace the white insulation in the back of the speaker case.
10. Press the speaker into the case’s face. If you wish, you can apply your preference of glue to the edge of the speaker prior to pressing it into the case.
11. Snap the grille onto the speaker.
12. Connect the speaker wires to the cube and you are done.

You should be good to go.

SOURCE: Replacement speaker (upper) for Bose double Cube.

try a music specialty store or radio shack if you want to only replace the small speakers inside the cubes. If you want to replace the whole cube, there are others out there. Look on ebay and or amazon I think the brand is JA Audio. A knock off of the bose cubes that can be used as stand alone speakers without the module.

Want to connect non-bose speakers to a bose lifestyle system


this is possible, however not a very good idea.
Bose speakers are designed a little different than other brand speakers, the Equalizer built into the bose system will probably not sound amazing when you hook up your other speakers. Are you looking for more bass? cleaner highs?

if you want more bass, you could try doubling up your subs, if you want cleaner highs you could buy Bose Jewel Cube Speakers (purchased from a Bose Built-Invisible Dealer

Bose 'Double' Cube Speaker Came Apart


Carefully unsnap the speaker cover you may want to use a jewelers screwdriver or a small flat tip to assist with getting it off. Once its off unscrew the 4 screws completely and then carefully wiggle the speaker from he cube. Once the speaker is out of the way reach in the cube and reset the plastic coupling so its flush with the inside top of the cube. With both cubes on there sides and the rubber washer and swivel ring in place press the bottom cube, with your finger(s) inside the cube on the plastic couping, up into th top cube until you here or feel it snap into place. Once it snaps into place, adjust the insulation in the speaker then wiggle the speaker back into the cube and carefully put the screws back in. Once this is accomplished snap the speaker coverback on and that's it. It takes ten minutes once you get the speaker cover off.

Changing out my monitor speakers to bose cube speakers


You probably can do it as long as the speakers there now are 8 ohm speakers and you must use the bose bass module with the cubes because the crossover is built into the bass module for the cubes to work. If you just wire up the cubes you will mess the cubes up and they want sound right at all. The cubes are no good without their bass module in other words. Hope this helps.

Dual Cube speakers


Remove grill from speaker that has the snap connector. Remove 4 screws, gently pull out speaker and padding. Put pressure on connector (making sure the connector is out at the max. position)with middle and index finger at the same time placing other speaker onto connector, slightly turning speaker. You will here it snap in. Just use maximum pressure with fingers. Do not use tools. Connector is made of plastic and can break very easy.

Detached cube speaker


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.
