Introduction

This guide will help walk you through the process of identifying the speaker wires for your Braven BRV-1s. If your device isn't working, despite having power and being properly connected, you could have damaged or a disconnected speaker wire. This guide will show you how to access these speaker wires and how to replace and solder them back into their proper place.
