I know this is old but just incase anyone has the same problem. Its proabably the connection from back panel to the internal amp (Inside the sub enclosure). The ribbon cable has the + for the left speaker right at the edge with quite a bit of tension. Over time and with the vibrations from the sub this will bend/pull out slightly and needs to be pushed back on and some hot glue put around the connection to hold it in place.

Thats how I fixed mine anyway.

    Had the same problem. When you unscrewed the bottom silver circle, it'll appear to be non removable but really its doable. Twist it around a bit pull it around the edges to remove it from the subwoofer. Then if you look close there will be 5 more screws, bigger then the ones before. They're not easy to get to and you'll probably damage inner silver circle just getting to it. Once those are out you can easily remove the top. The fix Maureen_mcgu mentioned worked for me too. Good luck!

    Thanks to you all! I can pull out the base silver bottom. However, I discovered that the foam surround of the speaker has cracked! Some pieces did fall out, rendering no bass. Is it replacable? Thanks.

The base stand in JBL Spot which is like spyro is removable. Its attached on three sides with sort of plugs which can be removed and put back. If you start with that then you can unscrew all rings all the way up and open the amp without damaging any ring.

    Did you try pulling out the bottom stand? You need to pull that out and then you can find your way up through the rings.

I removed the 5 screws already but still can not open the subwoofer. Do you have any video or photos on how to complete this process?

JBL Creature 2.1 Left Speaker not working


Hiya

Too late to resolve the original poster's worries, I can assume, but I arrived here when searching on account of the same problem and resolved it. This is going to sound implausibly condescending, I'm afraid (and excuse th elack of technical terminology!)...

I couldn't get my left speaker to work exactly as above, but then looked carefully at the shape of the respective cables leading to the sub. You have to fit the triangle shape of the lead into the triangular shape of the hole. The speaker CAN be connected what *feels* like correctly, but is in fact connected incorrectly (ie, not all the way in).

This is more a problem with the left speaker than the right since it's a triangle and the right is a square, and can be a little fiddly.

Anyone else experiencing the same problem should probably take a quick moment just to check this isn't it! :)
