Question about Griffin Technology Evolve Wireless Sound System for Apple iPod - High-Gloss Black
When I try to remove the speakers from the base unit, they will "click" and the speakers will not play off the base. If I am lucky and remove the speaker without a "click" then the speaker will play off 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.

Tips for a great answer:
Laptop or Desktop ?
Try swapping the speakers around to see if the problem is in the speaker itself.
Volume problems on computers often happen for a variety of reasons.
Volume troubleshooting, however, is one of the easiest problems to troubleshoot because there are only a few things that usually cause the problems.
Usually the problem isn't even an error but just merely an adjustment that needs to be made.
Test your speakers.
This is the first thing you should check if you can't hear anything coming out of your computer. First try turning up the volume know and make sure you are in fact turning the volume knob and not a tone or balance knob.
Make sure the speakers are completely plugged in to the wall and the computer. Test with another set of speakers or headphones after you have done this.
Check the computer volume level.
On the taskbar is a volume icon, which usually looks like a small speaker.
Click on the icon and turn the volume up.
Make sure it has not been muted.
Double clicking on the icon will bring up a panel of several volume controls.
Try turning up the volume on each slider.
Go to Control Panel and choose "Sounds and Audio Devices."
Under the volume tab, click speaker volume and turn up the level if needed.
Turn up the application volume. Most programs that use sound have an additional volume control just for that program.
Find the volume control and turn it up.
Usually it is located in the lower right or left corner on the program, but you may have to search for it.
Troubleshoot the sound card.
Download the latest drivers from your sound card manufacturer's website.
Go to Control panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Click on "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."
Click on your sound card, select the driver tab and then click on "Update Driver."
Point to the file where you saved the latest drivers from the website.
After this, restart your computer.
The speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side
you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make
sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity
clean your computer of dust using a can of compressed air or fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is
no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit
dust causes static to build up in a computer
If this doesn't solve your problem, try reseating the sound card into your computer.
Hope this helps
