Re: speakers

Unfortunately, these cases were glued together and put in place by a series of plastic pins and tabs not meant to be removed. There is no safe or healthy way of opening the case without causing some serious damage to the pins holding the inside speaker in place, plus the lip inside the case itself will break (not unglue). If you are handy with manual tools, you can use a small spatula and start prying off from between the case and the front cover at the the center of the speakers and go around it. You will hear the plastic and pins breaking, but if you take your time and be patient the cover and case will stay in shape. I will post a video on youtube on how to do this

Re: speakers

There are usually some screws on the back, possibly deep down in some holes, apond often hidden behind/under rubber feet or stickers. If it's a really cheap set of speakers they may be glued together, og even just "snapped" toghether.

If you are refering to the speaker lement itself, it will be destroyed if you disassemble it.

How do I fix portable speaker will not power up

You will have to try to find the damaged component(s), which means disassembling the speaker. Once you find what parts need to be replaced, you can order them from an electronics supplier such as Digi Key or Mouser. Replace the components and continue from there, as additional troubleshooting may be required.

How do I disassemble Sony SS-RG440 Speakers to fix a rattle?

If your Sony speakers are in sealed cabinets, the only way to get access inside is through the front by removing the grille and the speakers..BUT before removing the speakers check whether the speaker(s) themselves are the source of the rattle

There is no sound coming out of the rt. 750 tweeter. Left sounds fantastic.....right sounds muffled. any ideas? I disassembled and all contacts are tight, clean though suspect the array of wire...

Since you're that far into it why don't you either swap the tweeters or get a digital ohmmeter and check the dead one for an open circuit vs whatever the live one reads? Disconnect one lead from the tweeter first.

I have a new house that had speakers built into the cieling. I bought an onkyo to push all eight speakers. the reciever went into protect mode. i had an old reciever and hooked four speakers to the onkyo...

you can check them with a ohm meter, hook it to the wires that you hook to the reciever and if you get a reading it is good if no reading it is bad wires

One possibility is that the mute switches on your speakers have oxydized contacts INSIDE the switch - this kind of malfunction mostly occurs when the equipment is exposed to moisture and/or smog.

The most common solution is to change both switches, but they can also be disassembled and cleaned up (which is a bit more complicated and time consuming).

Another possibility is a dried up filter capacitor in the power supply or somewhere in the preamplifier section, possibly also a bad preamplifier chip but if your speakers work fine (with the exception of the mute switch noise), then the problem is more likely with the switches.

Also, check the internal connectors for any dirt, broken wires or desoldered pins.

Could also be something else, you should know i'm only assuming on the possibilities and i'm listing the most common problems i've encountered so far.

Power problem with Paradigm PDR 10 Subwoofer

Yes it can be.You can check it with ohmmeter the impedance should be 4 or 8 ohms.But if you can disassembly the sub its better then you can see and check everything.My guess is that one of the cables on the speakers connector is broken and its just touching the conntact.
