There are no screws on this speaker. This speaker cabinet is two pieces. The Bottom plate has all the internals fixed to it and the sides and top are glued to the bottom piece. It takes some doing but the glue bond can be broken. The wire connector posts (Red and Black) connects directly to the vertically mounted soundboard. These post are not soldered so if that electronic soundboard jostles out of its frame rails, the post will lose connection. The post assembly snaps out and I would remove it prior to taking the cabinet apart. It is all very simple and obvious if you get the cabinet open.

It may not be only wires loose; the speaker(or speakers) may be damaged.

The common 'dynamic' speaker has a centered magnet in an assembly that extends the field of the magnet around a coil of wire on a form called the 'voice coil' that is firmly attached to the cone which moves in and out to 'pump' air and produce sound.
The clearances (gap) between the magnet assembly and the voice coil that sits in a narrow space between the magnet and the outer field piece is very small and critical.

Once positioned in the factory, glue is used to keep the field assembly from slipping and rubbing against the voice coil.

A strong shock will break the glue bond and, if severe enough, clamp the voice coil so it cannot move freely any more.

Since the Bose is a quality product, the cabinet may be assembled with glue and screws that are concealed.

If you know someone with a simple multimeter, they may be able to check at the terminals to see if there is any continuity from the terminals to the speaker.
If it doesn't have any, then perhaps only a wire is broken between the terminals and the speakers.
There is with high probability also a filter inside that separates the frequency range and sends the signal to separate speakers that produce different ranges of sound.

Very possible. In fact they can be bypassed if you want to just run the speaker without their sacrificable presence. Get on the web and look up "yamaha speaker fuse protection" for user advice and kits.

I'd suspect a shorting voice coil in the woofer or a loose connection inside that vibrates and presents a wildly varying load.

Disconnect the bi-wiring jumpers and try driving each 'half' separately as a test for tripping the amp.

the braided wires from the speaker connectors to the voice coil could be broken (from repetitive movement) or it could be the voice coil it self that could be cut open from a miss alignment of the cone (ware and tear), delicately push on the cone and feel if it rubs, a simple test is to check the IMPEDANCE of the speaker with a OHMMETER, if you have a reading (4,6,or 8 ohms) than the speaker is fine, check the rest of the wiring, if it reads OPEN than you need a new speaker...

Which wire on the inside is the positive the

Why should it matter if you're talking about the two wires that go directly to the speaker?

Reversing them would only result in reversal of the 'phase' (speaker pushing out or pulling in on a corresponding signal from the amp) which isn't absolute anyway. Once you integrate a sub with your other speakers and the ROOM, you have to usually mess around with reversing the phase of one or more speakers either through a convenient switch on the sub itself or through reversing the polarity of the wire coming from the amp, so when a huge bass note pushes out of one speaker it isn't being cancelled by another speaker pulling back at the same time.

Go for it. Make a choice. They're both right.

Bottom won't come back out after pushing in for connection .

sometimes when you push the cable in i have seen folks get the cable into to far and then the conduit part is inside the connector also and the button will not come back down, make sure you only have the striped part inside the hole. if that does not work you might have to take a jewelers flat screwdriver and pry it down a little, either one should work. if not then either take speaker back to factory if under warranty or remove speaker and change the button. try the first one then the next one them the two common ones. good luck and let me know.

Accoustimass 15 speaker problem

more than likely your speaker terminals are broke. Those type of terminals have springs inside to push them down onto wires. more than likely the terminals will have to be replaced.

Is there any way to take these apart?

If there are no screws evident on the rear of the unit carefully remove the grill on the front. Usually they are just lightly glued on. Most quality speaker enclosures open from the front and the speaker can be taken out for access to the wiring inside. If you cannot find any way in from the front look for some sort of plug or cover over screws. This could be on the back or under the grill. Sometimes they are covered with plastic covers which match the surface. If you do not have access any of these ways this could be a sealed unit which is not made to take apart. Good luck.
