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

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

Want to use my current speakers with a new surround sound system. Current system is 5.1 channels, rated at 100w per channel @ 8. Ohms. New System is rated 145watts, 5.2 channels at 6 Ohms. Will b ok?


Hi Ronald.
8 Ohm speakers will work just fine as replacements for the
6 ohm speakers. When fitting speakers you need to consider
The power handling capability. The impedance and the frequencies
involved. Power handling is expressed in wattage ie 100W.
Unfortunately this can be expressed in rms, max or peak music. The rms value (root mean square) is the only really relevant figure as this is the continuose handling power at 1 KHz. The impedance
is the resistance that the amp sees but is not a dc resistance and
varies with frequency. The lower the impedance the more power
will be drawn from the amp. In the event of a short circuit across
the speaker the amp will try to deliver infinite power into an infinitly
small load in an infinitesimal amount of time and will self destruct.
Using an 8 Ohm speaker draws less power than a 6 Ohm speaker.
Connecting speakers in parallel; results in the impedance beingreduced. For example two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel will result
in a 4 Ohm impedance load but in series will be 16 Ohms.
Incidentally the the .1 (5.1) is the sub woofer which only has
to handle the bass frequencies, a small percentage of the
amplifiers overall frequency response..
Connect your speakers and then power up the amp last
after double checking there are no shorts on the speaker
cables.
All the very best from Vintie.

Once you open the speaker it will destroy the acoustic properties and make the speaker useless. The speakers are assembled with takp and glue and have to be pried apart.

I have a Rowe R80 jukebox and after moving it it has no sound through the speakers I am in New Zealand


Well, in addition to all the fine suggestions that are here, I would like to add the simple and easy things that may have happened during the move.

IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING A LOUD POP WHEN THE MACHINE IS POWERED ON.......

1) Make sure that the wires on the terminals below are still connected to the screws. There is one ground and one each for left and right. The lower the tap the lower the (max) volume of the jukebox.If they are not connected there will be no sound.

There is a jumpers on the terminal strip where the volume control connects. Make sure that these connections are correct and tight. Also make sure that the jumpers did not fall off.

If you are getting the loud pop in the speakers when the power is turned on .....

Check the plug on the side of the mechanism, just below the back of the tone are.(looks like a little tube socket) Check to see that it is connected to the mech and the CORRECT PLACE on the amplifier. It mat be possible to have this end in the wrong place. bf77613e-82a3-4e37-b8fe-cc80f4d4dbcb.jpg

Check all all your connections against the pic.

I hope this was helpful.

How to connect speakers logitech z 5500 to the TV Samsung UN32F5500 32-Inch 1080p 60Hz Slim Smart LED


Hello there!
I have seen manuals of both the systems. You have two options to connect Logitech z5500 speakers to Samsung UN32F5500 TV.
1. With Optical Audio Cable.

0daa0bcc-2410-4f3f-9f1b-001ec53d8ec3.jpg

2. Stereo Ear Phone Connection.
Simply plug in Green earphone cable of Logitech Speakers to Green Audio out Jack described on Page 7 of the TV manual. If you are using stereo EP you may not experience 5.1sound separation. And it is also mentioned that you should not use other two audio cables of the tri-EP-cable provided with Logitech speakers.

Have a nice day!

Iwave pod bluetooth speaker


Unless your PC is Bluetooth capable, you'll need to get a Bluetooth device to make it so. This is just one of many such devices to select from. Amazon com Roker Ultra Mini CSR Bluetooth 4 0 Usb Adator for PC and... They vary in size and price. Shop around to find one that best suits your budget. But you want an adaptor/receiver specifically for Bluetooth. (you will need an empty USB port for the adaptor)

Hope this information helps, best of luck!
