Turn the sub upsidedown, carefully remove the clear rubber feet (these are a dome fitted over a mushroom top), using the toothed gripper cutout of a pair of pliers (when closed it is the eye shaped opening visible on one side), grip the mushroom firmly but not so hard as to crush the mushroom and gently ease clockwise and anticlockwise (the mushroom is at one end of a clear plug blocking access to the four screws that hold the two parts together.
Be carefull to use the correct size screwdriver so as not to damage the screw heads as they are tight.
On reassembly, you may need to use glue to replace the rubber feet if the mushroom becames damages during removal.

    OK. You can come and get your 'Pass-out with Honours" Top-Apprentice-of-the-Year badge
    (This written Dec 2010, after buying a U/S set of these things, and not having yet worked out to remove that plug. It certainly is a weak point, and your advice is absolutely spot on.

    There are a lot of tricks to working on these things. So far I am just on refurb of the #1 stick.

    Would there be any value my posting other snippets as I find them regarding the HKs? Is it possible to post .jpg's?

    Thanks again

    Thanks for this post. I have just successfully released a butterfly from my subwoofer! She's flown to freedom. Thank you. And it all went back together again without any problems.

The subwoofer seems to make the perfect residence for a Daddy Longlegs spider. Mine has been in there for weeks and seems to be loving how the LED light attracts small moths. I just took mine apart [using the advice above], gave it a good clean, but given easy it was to take apart, didn't have the heart to remove the spider out. I left him in there, reassembled the unit without any hassle at all and the by next morning, he was back in business. :-)

My MacBook's audio still on even when harman Kardon speakers are connected to the computer.(Original version with USC connectors).

As I seem to recall the very first version was powered by the computer and as such may not be compatible with your Mac. I may be thinking of Apple's Clear speakers though? Do your HK Soundsticks have a power adapter or AC cord?

I have a leaf in my subwoofer. I'm very reluctant to take it apart. Any ideas? Thanks

How on earth did a leaf get in there?
If it is not affecting the sound quality, I'd leave it especially if you are not keen on taking the woofer apart, I'm afraid thats what you will need to do though if you want it out

How do I disassemble + clean Harmon Kardon SoundStick subwoofer?

Check for a Fuse. Mine is an older model and has a Fuse right next to the power cord. It probably has a slot for a flathead screwdriver.

Lost the power cable from subwoofer of my harmon Kardon

If you go to the Harmon/Kardon website, you can find where to buy replacement parts.

http://www.harmankardon.com/

Select product support on the front page, then go to parts.

Then select your product as Harmaron/Kardon SoundsticksII and select your country.

Hope this helps,

Nathan.

Harman kardon soundsticks II

use a clear silicone based sealant (similar to the type used for caulking and in fish tanks) I'm guessing you used CA or superglue, and thats what melted your plastic, you're using too much also most likely.
