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.
Great post "Best Solution". I did not use pliers, but loosened the glue by wiggling in small jeweler screwdrivers and slowly and safely prying out the actual speaker. Also did not need the C-clamp - just pressed w/fingers hard to snap the connector back into the bottom speaker. Thanks again.
To eshugh (#3)!!!
perfect!!!! my speakers are screwed in-didn't have to break a glue seal.didn't need the c-clamp either-got 2 fingers into the cube to hold the connector in place and used my other hand to exert pressure on the female unit; took 20 minutes for the 1st one-5 minutes for the 2nd.now have to find a solution to the unit not powering up.
I have this same problem. One of our cats knocked over a cube speaker array and the two speakers separated from each other. Nothing is broken per se, but there is a white plastic ring with tabs on it that is supposed to hook the two speakers together. I can't seem to figure out how to reconnect them again because everytime I try to press them together to get the tabs to engage, the connector ring pushes back into the speaker to which it is already attached. I tried taking the front grills off to see if I could anchor or support the connector ring from the inside, but the speakers are sealed around the edges. I'm afraid to unseal them because I don't want to do any more damage, but I'm almost certain I could reattch the speakers to each other if I could get inside the bottom cube. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appraciated.

What sound are you putting into the system? Have you checked that the audio you're putting into the system works into some other device? Have you checked that you have the correct input device selected?
If you have checked that the audio going into the system is working properly and you have the correct input device selected then yes, audio in but nothing out = something is broken inside.
this is possible, however not a very good idea. Bose speakers are designed a little different than other brand speakers, the Equalizer built into the bose system will probably not sound amazing when you hook up your other speakers. Are you looking for more bass? cleaner highs?
if you want more bass, you could try doubling up your subs, if you want cleaner highs you could buy Bose Jewel Cube Speakers (purchased from a Bose Built-Invisible Dealer
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!!!
You probably can do it as long as the speakers there now are 8 ohm speakers and you must use the bose bass module with the cubes because the crossover is built into the bass module for the cubes to work. If you just wire up the cubes you will mess the cubes up and they want sound right at all. The cubes are no good without their bass module in other words. Hope this helps.
mount to wall, brackets available to purcahse on loads of on line sites. and from bose direct cost 5 dolurs to 50 dollars eack depending how fancy you want to be.
would recomment also distancing the left right satellites as you will be amazed how much improvement in sound is gained from a well defined centre channel.
also if you want to be really smart. its really not necessary to see the centre satelliet and it could simply sit of the stand behind the tv. with no problem. plus you could use the tv audio input to make the tv as a centre channel. you would be surprised how well that works. make sure you disable the tvs steroe function or your surround sound will not sound too surround....
finally if you have lifestyle series II make sure you conect the 5.1 input to the bass box to your tv. and get rid of the bose cd player , put it out of sight, and loose the remote. will work even better than it did before !
