Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

When reassembling, pay attention

  • to correctly insert all connectors into their sockets
  • to the right positioning of the speaker and battery cables when pulling them through the inner separation (and reconnecting them to the PCB)
  • to correctly position the On/Off switch cover when remounting the PCB.

To ensure a similar sound quality as before, the cable entries in the inner separation may need sealing after the cables have been reconnected. If this becomes necessary, hot glue or some sealing paste/wax could be used for this.
