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.

I need information on how to open the cabinet on a Bose 100 speaker. My Grandson put some small beads into the bass port and they are vibrating around.


Unfortunately, these cases were glued together and put in place by a series of plastic pins and tabs not meant to be removed. There is no safe or healthy way of opening the case without causing some serious damage to the pins holding the inside speaker in place, plus the lip inside the case itself will break (not unglue). If you are handy with manual tools, you can use a small spatula and start prying off from between the case and the front cover at the the center of the speakers and go around it. You will hear the plastic and pins breaking, but if you take your time and be patient the cover and case will stay in shape. I will post a video on youtube on how to do this.

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.

Unable to receive optimum output. The bass is totally flat !


Hi, ok the Bose Acoustimass III system consists of two small cube speakers and one subwoofer unit called the Acoustimass bass module. If the subwoofer stops working, three points can be the cause of the failure. The Bose Acoustimass III is a passive system, meaning the speakers do not power themselves, but instead are connected to a receiver or amplifier. Thus, the amplifier, the speaker between the amplifier and the subwoofer, or the subwoofer itself could be the issue.

Things You'll Need:

* Amplifier
* Speaker cable
* Extra subwoofer


Instructions


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the Bose Accoustimass bass module and connect it to a subwoofer that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the bass module needs to be replaced.


Disconnect the speaker cable from the back of the receiver or amplifier you are using and from the back of the subwoofer in Step 1.


Connect a speaker cable that is known to be working between the back of the receiver or amplifier and the back of the Accoustimass module. If the module starts working, then the cable was the issue.


Disconnect the speaker cable from Step 3 from the back of the amplifier or receiver, then connect the cable to the subwoofer port on the back of an amplifier or receiver that is known to be working. If the subwoofer works, the receiver was the issue. If the subwoofer still does not work, verify that the speaker cable is in the subwoofer port of the receiver/amplifier and that the cable is connected securely to the subwoofer.



If you think you did the connection properly,Fine... If not you can use the manual from the below link and know how to connect it properly..

How to replace damaged subwoofer? Opened cabinet and found that the woofers' voice coil has burnt and the cone can't move. How to replace it the damaged speaker?


Since the coil is attached to to cone, you are looking at replacing the whole 15" driver (speaker)
To get access to the screws that hold it in place, you'll need to remove the front bezel from the cabinet, then remove the screws around the speaker's rim.

For what it's worth, that driver isn't a subwoofer, it's just a 15" driver. JBL does make 15" and 18" subwoofer drivers, but they aren't the same speaker as what's in this EON. Hopefully that will help you when you're shopping for a replacement driver.

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

Problem connecting Onkyo Amplifier to Bose Accoustimass speaker system


This is probably correct as modern equipment uses electronic volume controls rather than potential dividers the range is normally biased towards the bottom end so there is lots of the range that is quiet and a smaller part that is loud.

Unless you find that at the top of the volume range the system does not seem to be loud then it is probably correct. It is not uncommon for modern equipment to clip at 80 / 90% of the volume range. Where as old style equipment with volume pots used to clip at arround 30% of the volume range as it gave the apperance there was loads of extra volume available. In fact all that happened if you turned it up louder was it clipped more and more.

Regards,
Andrew

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.
