How can i put back together the two array cube speakers, the clip thats suppose to hold them together keeps on getting inside the top cube speaker and i cant push it down to the other one to make it lock into place.
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.
Take the cover off bottom cube (should have the BOSE tag)
unscrew the 4 screws holding speaker in place
GENTLY pry out speaker out
(having a helper to hold speakers and resembly is helpful)
put bottom cube on level surface and push up on plastic clip
and slide down the 2 o rings into place on bottom cube
find the outer notch on plastic clip and line it up to notch on
the upper cube and press upper cube down into bottom cube clip - rotate it slighty until it clicks into place
replace the 4 screws and snap on cover done!

You will be needing to remove the inner door panel, being most careful no to break the plastic clips that hold it in place.
They break very easily.
You will then look for the different connectors to the various parts, such as the window handles, or electric switches, and detach them as needed, remembering how they came apart so you can put them back together.
You should see the cable inside the door, and be able to detach it and replace it.
God bless your efforts.
These tiny mechanisms aren't easy in the least to repair. They were never intended to be repaired. Remove the front grill and remove the driver (Speaker) to get at the mechanism inside the enclosure. An ink pen spring will probably work fine for a replacement. If this fails and you still want to have use of the speaker you'll have to drill a hole in the back of the enclosure and connect to the terminals from the inside of the cube enclosure.
from what you describe it sounds like you may have broke the jack, or a resistor has broke down inside.
without the model of speaker I cannot be sure how to open them but most desktop speakers if not screwed together are put together with clips. by finding the join on the speakers and then inserting the driver carefully you can locate the retaining clips and prise open them..
however only do this is you dont care if they break.
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.
The speaker wire is supposed to be connected to a mono right angle 1/8" male plug. It resembles the same plugs at the end of headphones used for all sorts of walkmans, cd players, mp3 players... But the plug on your speakers is mono so instead of there being two bands on the plug for stereo, you need the mono variety, the one with one band. They plug into two small female holes located on the bottom rear of the boombox. You might see some small black plastic clips along the bottom of the boombox held in place by one screw. These things are meant to keep the speaker wire from hanging out from the bottom of the boombox.
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.
Use a Flat blade screw driver to take off both grills. Take both speakers out use a phillips screw driver. Put your fingers in the cube with the protruding grommet, turn the object until you see it protruding its maximum. Next align it with the opening in the other cube and press until you here it click back together. re-attach speakers and put grills back on ..Whala!!!
Sure, why wouldn't it be? Are you using the 14 gauge wire and what length are you needing? If running crazy long lengths double the 4 conductors together which will give you an effective 11 gauge cable.
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.
