How to open bose AM25 module
First thing -it is exceedingly difficult to get inside the wooden bass box to reach the woofer without seriously damaging the cabinet and virtually rendering the unit worthless. So if someone (like a toddler) has dropped a toy inside the box through the port and you're trying to get it out, better to buy one of those telescopic cameras ($200?) to look inside and attempt to fish it out.
However, if for some reason you are trying to get inside the power amplifier / EQ assembly on the back, this is possible to do without damaging the unit at all. I haven't done this in a while, so I am going from memory (please excuse any mistakes). First, with the bass module sitting upright on the floor and with the port facing away from you, examine the seam where the plastic cover to the amplifier/EQ meets the wooden cabinet. If you look carefully in that seam, you will see something that looks like the teeth of a gear. With a tiny screwdriver (or toothpick?), rotate that to the left (towards the side of the bass box that has the bass and treble controls) until a little triangle of plastic is sticking out and pointing straight up. Now, turn the bass box upside down and look at the place where all the cube speakers are plugged into. You should see two little black screws. Remove these and set aside. Now, stand the bass box on the floor, with the port facing down to the floor. With some effort, you should be able to simply slide the plastic cover off by pushing it from the "top", toward the "bottom". In other words, if the bass box were sitting in its normal position on your floor, you'd want to push the cover down, into the floor. I hope I'm describing it adequately...once you get it, you'll be pleasantly surprised how easy it actually is...and you can tell me if those two little black screws needed to be removed at all.
