Harman Kardon Soundsticks I - back of tweeter has come off

The metal back from the top tweeter in one of my  Soundsticks has come off (it fell off my table onto the floor).  Is there a way of opening the Soundstick 'tube' to push the metal back onto the tweeter?  I can see where it used to be glued to the back of the tweeter, but am not sure if the plastic casing will snap open , or whether it is glued together.  
Alternatively, if this can't be done, can anyone suggest how I could repair this because the sound is a bit fuzzy at times because of the loose backing?

Many thanks.   Mark

I took a screwdriver and pried mine open (at one of the ends, not the center), snapped my tweeter back in place, took model airplane glue and a Q-tip, covered the ridge side (not the grooved side) of the case with just a little line of glue and stuck them back together. Worked perfect.

Take a hair pin, inset it through the speaker grill, and bring it back out, like a hook, and grab it with both hands, and pull gently, it worked for me

    This guy is a thinker!
    I didn't use a hairpin for fear of hurting the speaker grill, but I did use a string of leather (old necklace) to pull the two left side clips back in, and then took a small paintbrush handle, and gently levering off the speaker body, pushed the two on the right into place with a satisfying "kloonk" sound!
    Thanks man!
    Awesome fix!

My MacBook's audio still on even when harman Kardon speakers are connected to the computer.(Original version with USC connectors).

As I seem to recall the very first version was powered by the computer and as such may not be compatible with your Mac. I may be thinking of Apple's Clear speakers though? Do your HK Soundsticks have a power adapter or AC cord?

Harman Kardon Soundsticks II left speaker

Hi, Kazim
Firts things First:
1) check connector for 2 way sound. you can use a headphone for this.
2) you also buy Ipod dock sound speakers, there is Ihome speakers, great ones, for less than 25.00 dollars.
3) you have to see balance on those speakers.
good luck

use a clear silicone based sealant (similar to the type used for caulking and in fish tanks) I'm guessing you used CA or superglue, and thats what melted your plastic, you're using too much also most likely.
