Bose acoustimas double cube speaker

Inadvertently took off the small cover on the rear of the cube speaker that houses the speaker wires connection. Now i have (2) springs, (2) metal clips and not a clue how this goes back together. Any thoughts or a diagram would be great! Thanks...

Hi,

Are we talking the actual wire connectors here?

If so, the springs go in first, then the clips sit on these to receive the wires.

Hope This helps

    Try the wires into the sockets without the springs fitted. The strips may lock the wires in place with a spring pressure behind them.



    Look at the functioning one you have to campare it with.

    Hi,



    I still think the springs go into a moulding first to put pressure on these clips.



    It is more likely they just sit in the main body of the speaker on a pair of pegs or in a plastic moulding, and act as part of the method of holding the plug in. You do have leads with plugs on - not just bare wires?



    If the plugs and sockets function as normal, then this must serve as a transfer link between sockets and speaker body. Therefore these clips must touch both portions when clipped together, the springs making sure a good contact is made.



    Can you get a good photo of where they came out of - the pastic mouldings.

    (sorry this is long winded - 5 minute job to get hands on it)

How to put together a double cube bose speaker


The Bose speakers with the cubes and bass module are all interconnected with a proprietary cable available from Bose, if lost you get a replacement by called 1-800-444-BOSE.
When you connect the speakers all wires run from the receiver to the base module first, then out to each of the speakers. All terminals on the bass module are labeled.
The Bose cubes are all identical and can be used in the front or back positions.
Try to keep them at ear level or aimed at the listening position for best sound.

I have a pair of redline bose cube speakers and an acoustimas. I don't have cable for the connection. I would appreciate if someone help me showing diagram and which cable I should use it. Thanks


You can make a serial cable for it. All you need is a 15-pin d-type female connector and a bunch of speaker wire. Solder the speaker wire as shown in my diagram.

Bose 'Double' Cube Speaker Came Apart


Carefully unsnap the speaker cover you may want to use a jewelers screwdriver or a small flat tip to assist with getting it off. Once its off unscrew the 4 screws completely and then carefully wiggle the speaker from he cube. Once the speaker is out of the way reach in the cube and reset the plastic coupling so its flush with the inside top of the cube. With both cubes on there sides and the rubber washer and swivel ring in place press the bottom cube, with your finger(s) inside the cube on the plastic couping, up into th top cube until you here or feel it snap into place. Once it snaps into place, adjust the insulation in the speaker then wiggle the speaker back into the cube and carefully put the screws back in. Once this is accomplished snap the speaker coverback on and that's it. It takes ten minutes once you get the speaker cover off.

Initial Bose Speakr Hook-Up Acoust 10-Denon RCVR


Hope this may help but you will disappointed. as heard from some pro, your amp will blow up the bose cube if direct connected to them, they are powering down your output to fit their tiny speaker. My understanding was you have to hook up everything to the bose module. They don't like to play with others.

Bose Cube Speakers separated


Ok…

I had the same problem with a Bose separated double-cube Acoustimass speaker/array but was able to fix it as follows:

Tools:
small, thin, flat-head screwdriver
large pliers
C-clamp

Instructions:
1. Disconnect the speaker wires from the cube.
2. Remove the grille from the top speaker cube. It just pops off.
3. Insert a small, thin, flat-head screwdriver around the perimeter of the speaker. You will have to pry lightly to break the glue’s seal.
4. Using a set of pliers (large, plumber-sized) wiggle the speaker until it comes free. You might need to grip it top to bottom and then left to right. The speaker will come free of the case.
5. Remove the white insulation to get a clear view of the dislodged brace/connector.
6. Stack the top and bottom cubes. Make sure that the rubber seal between the cubes is seated properly and that the black and white cables are not pinched.
7. Using the C-clamp, compress the brace/connector until it seats on one side. Loosen the C-clamp and compress the opposite side. The brace/connector should snap into place. Be sure the make sure that you do not pinch the speak wires that are running through the center of the brace/connector.
8. Test the articulation. It should be the same as your other speakers.
9. Replace the white insulation in the back of the speaker case.
10. Press the speaker into the case’s face. If you wish, you can apply your preference of glue to the edge of the speaker prior to pressing it into the case.
11. Snap the grille onto the speaker.
12. Connect the speaker wires to the cube and you are done.

You should be good to go.
