Accoustimass 15 speaker problem

The tab on the back of my speakers will not release to hold the wires in place. This is the case on all five speakers. I just made a move from Hawaii to Maryland and my stuff was shipped. Is is possible some kind of corrosion causing the tab to hold in the open position?

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 a product like WD 40, only for stuck terminal tabs. Mine are stuck on Bose accoustimass 3 speakers . A terminal tab is pushed in, will not pop back out, and the wires will not stay...


Never use WD40 or any other petroleum product on anything electronic including the terminals. You may have to remove that terminal and repair or replace it. Good luck.

How do you remove it from the monitor?


From the back the sound bar slides lengthwise to the right. To keep it from sliding there is a plastic tab set into the back of the monitor on the right center end. To release that tab pull the release lever located over the tab on the right center of the speaker assembly, toward you.Then the whole speaker assembly will slide to the right and lift. Done.

Broken speaker connectors


Yes you can get relacements, you need to try Maplins or similar type of electronic store. You can also get connectors that will solder on the ends of the speaker wire and will push into the speaker connectors, the common name for these is Banana plugs, this may be a cheaper solution.

HOW DO I REMOVE THE COVER TO BOSE ACCOUSTIMASS 15?


Your speakers are more than likely similar to my Pioneers. To do any work on them you have to very gently, with a tiny screwdriver, pry of the metal speaker grill evenly all the way around. If this is the case, take you time and be very patient as to not bend the grill. They are put in tightly so the sound doesnt shake them lose. At the service centers they usually just install new grills. Hope this helps. Steve

External speaker hook-up


Ok, after A LOT of internet research I could not find any solution. So I decided to do a "chop suey" connection.

Went to Radio Shack and bought ...
Insulated Grip 2-1/4"Alligator Clips w/screw terminals 10 (five red & five black)
(A smaller alligator clip can be used if you have a soldering iron to connect the wires.)

30-Ft. 18-Gauge Clear 2-Conductor Speaker Wire

It cost about $15 for everything. Be sure to have electrical tape as well.

Stripped speaker wires to fit through each alligator clip and twisted it around the screw terminals of clip. Tapped screw terminal to cover wiring. Do this for 2 black and 2 red clips.

To install l laid the TV on its back and insterted each alligator clip to firmly fit on each terminal. Because the clips are large it will be a tight next to each other. Be sure to test one line and speaker first before completed the second line and speaker.

GOOD LUCK!

Speaker wire tabs for neg/pos connections in rear of speaker


The usual spring-loaded speaker terminals can be bought from constructor supply catalogues or salvaged from broken or obsolete equipment.

It should be possible for anyone with a moderate practical aptitude to replace the terminal if the original is beyond repair. It is a largely intuitive process.

Detached cube speaker


I had the same problem.
Step one: pop of the grille with a screwdriver or knife inserted from the bottom so that any marks will be hidden when you get the two halves back together.
Step two: If the speaker is held in by screws, you are lucky. Just unscrew the speaker and remove it. If the speaker isn't held into the case by screws, it is a newer model that is glued to the back cover / box. You can separate the glue with a bread knife or thin screwdriver (I used a paint scraper and thin screwdriver). Be careful to work around all four sides. Also, there is a small (about 1/4" long) plastic bump in the center of each of the four sides that clips into a matching groove in the speaker, so you will have to spring apart at least two adjacent sides at the same time to release the speaker from the cover easily.
Step 3: Once you have the speaker out, remove the acoustic sponge, and sit the bottom half on a solid table. Make sure the rubber gasket between the speakers is seated properly and note the position of the 3 notches in the hole of the bottom speaker cover. Place the top speaker cover in place and insert the white plastic 3 pronged clip though the the hole so that the prongs match the notches. Press down hard with two thumbs and it should snap into place.
Step 4: Replace the sponge and push the top speaker back into the cover. Replace the screws if you had them. Otherwise you can glue it again but the clips are quite solid if not damaged by the removal so you can save some effort the next time it happens by leaving it unglued, and just snapping the speaker into place.
Step 5: push the grille back on.
