  1. JBL Xtreme Speaker Replacement, Cover: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • Locate the seams next to the 'feet' on the bottom side of the device.

    • Use the metal spudger to gently pry and lift the edge of the seam. The cover is held in place with plastic snaps that will make a popping noise when disengaged. !!Start with the back half, this will expose TWO Screws that need to be removed before lifting the front half.

    Yes, the fact needs to be added that two screws need to also be removed to get the cover off. One side snaps off but the other is attached with two screws.

    Vorsichtig die Kante hochhebel, wo der Reissverschluss ist. Da ist die Hülle gesteckt. Die andere Seite hat Schrauben die man lösen sollte. Ansonsten zerstört man zu Beginn die Befestigung der einen Seite.

    • For the first part of the case: gently pull back the edges of the case rotating along the hinge opposite the opening seam illustrated in the second photo. Plastic snaps hold the cover in place.

    • For the second part of the case: there are 2 screws to be removed at the seam. Once removed, the case will come off completely without forcing.

    It feels like you are “breaking” the cover, but in fact it seems to have a kind of “bending point” near the top of the cover by the exterior controls. Watch for the two screws to remove.

    There is two screws holding the cover at its other end beside the plastic snaps

    • Unscrew the six 9.75mm Phillips head screws holding the bass radiator in place.

    • Three of the five outer screws are indicated in the first image and the sixth inner screw is indicated in the second image.

    This was the most difficult part for me. The screws are pretty tight, I needed a larger screwdriver to get them out.

    Achtung, die Bassstrahler sind mit dem Gehäuse über zwei “Klebedichtungen” verbunden. Diese müssen beim Zusammenbau wieder eingebaut werden.

    • Once the screws have been removed, the bass radiator will easily lift free.

    • Both radiators are identical. Repeat the above steps on the opposite radiator if necessary.

    Where can I buy the bass radiators independently?

    Ich empfehlen, erst den 7. Schritt auszuführen. So kann anhand der Kabel feststellen welcher Bassstrahler entfernt werden muss!

    I would recommend to do the 7th step first. So can determine, based on the cable, which bass radiator must be removed!

    Schritt sieben zuerst ist eine grandiose Idee, erspart einiges an Nerven.

    die Linke Seite wie auf dem Bild ist die richtige. Dahinter findet man die Platine mit dem Anschlussstecker für den Akku. Somit sollte eigentlich 1ne Seite reichen.

    • With the radiators removed, locate the ribbon cable indicated in the image.

    • Gently unplug the cable from the motherbord.

  7. JBL Xtreme Speaker Replacement: step 7, image 1 of 3 JBL Xtreme Speaker Replacement: step 7, image 2 of 3 JBL Xtreme Speaker Replacement: step 7, image 3 of 3
    • First, unscrew the eight 12.93mm Phillips head screws indicated in red. These screws hold the two primary speakers in place.

    • Next, remove the four 9.75mm Phillips head screws for the two smaller speakers indicated in blue and the speakers should lift out with little effort.

    • All speakers are connected via the single cable highlighted in the previous step.

    Except the passive subwoofers on each side, I found one of the JBL logo,, outside left, subwoofer plates to be partially loose which resulted in the rattle on low frequencies. Nothing a good glue couldn’t fix.
