Question about Bose Acoustimass 15 System
Probable lightning strike killed unit. Is there a fuse inside? How can the case be opened? Removal of two screws does not "loosen" case in any significant way.
Just a bit more info...a bit more detail
Remove the two screws from the case at the back.
Sit the unit in normal upright position. Use a good torch and look at the back of the unit along the top seam where the plastic case joins the main body - there are three latches to disengage along this seam.
1. The thumbwheel which turns to the left & exposes the tab. This disengages a simple Tee'd section on the wheel which stops the case sliding down. As long as you can see the tab this is disengaged.
2 & 3. On the far left & far right of the seam are simple lever latches which must be pushed back towards the main body to allow the rear case to slide down. Push these in then the case will slide down quite easily.

I had the same problem. Remove the "two screws", and also remove the LFE and Bass knobs on the side. There is a thumb latch at the end of the unit opposite the cable connections. You can not see it unless you use a flashlight to look in the seam of the unit. Use a screw driver to turn this until there is a plastic tab sticking out. Slide cover off. Unfortunately my fuse was good and I'll have to send the thing in for repair...

Do as instructed above. Remove the 2 screws and knobs. Put the narrow section where the speakers attach in the back, over the edge of a work bench, with the main speaker body safely on the table. Spin the center tab down, as stated here and when the triangle shows in the middle, you have unlatched the center section. Now put 2 thin bladed screw drivers, on the left and right edges and press them in and toward the thin section (where the cables attach) you will hear or feel them click. NOW take the palm of your hand and pound the thin section that is hanging free DOWN and the back section will slide off allowing it to be removed.
