The back plate is definitely snap off. As teodo mentioned, do not pull the entire rubber backing off. On the bottom and sides of the back plater there are two snaps, each directly on either side of the wider ridge along each edge. The top is a different problem. The snaps are on the speaker side and clip onto the bottom of the upper edge of the back panel. To remove the back plate: Start on the bottom of the speaker at the back edge. Pull away the rubber edge carefully to expose the joint between the back panel and the speaker box. Along the center of the of this joint on the panel is a wider ridge. Place a thin flat edged tool on one side of the ridge, pry, then push forcibly until the inner edge of the back plate is apart. Do this to each of the edges on the bottom and sides of the speaker. Don't peel away any rubber on the top side of the speaker. Press your flat edged tool into the joint and lift gently the back plate side of the joint before pushing it out. This will disengage the clips on that edge. If you're looking to replace the batteries, they are 3.5V 5200maH. Take Care

Yes, but you need the right tools and you are likely to scratch and mark the surface.
They aren't 'sonically welded', they are just snapped together. To open them you'll need some thin but rigid pry tool and a lot of patience.
You'll need to remove the back cover (the side with the ON / OFF switch). First peel the rubber off the edges - you don't need to fully remove it, just enough to access the joint between the cover and the rest of the speaker. Then pry open the light gray plastic cover.
My speaker wasn't working because I dropped it, causing the magnet to detach from the chassis. It was a very easy to fix it once I managed to open the speaker. Griffin support gave me only one option: buy a new set. Unfortunately they are not available anymore in my country.
Hope this helps

No, don't ask me how I know, but they're sonically welded. Let Griffin know if you're having trouble and they can probably help you out (email them at support@griffintechnology.com). Good luck, Rachel

SOURCE: griffin evolve remote not functioning

how did you take off the back to put in new batteries... try syncing your speakers by holding the 2 volume buttons on the base at the same time for about 2 secs.... the light will start to blink and you just click any button on your remote. If that doesnt work then its firmware

My Griffin Amplifi is not working, and I am trying to fix it, but i do not know where the screws are at to open it.


Pull off the knob, undo the bolt on the pot. Then remove the plastic cap which disseminates the blue glow. Next, slip your nails under the edge of the metal grille and slowly prize it off (don't worry, it's supposed to come off). Now there's 8 screws exposed. Undo those and she's all yours...

The speakers on my Griffin Evolve wireless speaker system will not work. However, when I transfer them to a second identical system and base, using the same iPod they do work. It seems as though the base...


Well, you did the right thing by verifying that the speakers are not the problem (they work in an identical system). Try connecting a different iPod, just to rule out that being a problem. Some of these docks need an adapter for some versions of the iPod... check to make sure you have the right one. Otherwise, if the base is defective, maybe you can get a replacement from Griffin. Contact their technical support staff. Good luck.

My 2yr old was playing with my ipod in my griffin speakers


Unfortunately, it sounds like she broke the jack inside of it. It has lost connection to the main circuit board, and is of course now useless. If you know what you are doing and it is NOT under warranty, you could try opening it and resoldering it, not that it will definitely work. Otherwise, if it is under warranty, back it up (if you can), and take it back to the store.
