Introduction

To properly hear the gorgeous notes played from the keys, the replacement for the speaker(s) of the keyboard will take a bit of time as you need a screwdriver and soldering iron. Note that these instructions are to replace the left speaker, but the same steps can be taken to replace the right speaker.

Parts

No parts required.

Locate the seven 11mm screws on the back of the keyboard in order to remove the speaker from the front of the keyboard. There are 7 screws that need to be removed in total to replace one speaker. Use a JIS-1 screwdriver to remove these screws: 2 on the back panel, and 4 on the side of the keyboard. Three of these seven screws are slightly hidden and may be hard to find.
