  • Base Separation

    • Separate the resonator portion from the base of device to reveal the middle casing

    • Gently lift the middle layer to remove the black separator plate

    • For these steps, be careful with the device in order to preserve the working order of the red and black speaker wires that travel through the center of the device.

Image 1/1: Heat the soldering iron to operating temperature.
  • Removing the Wires using a Soldering Iron

    • Heat the soldering iron to operating temperature.

      • Use caution as to not harm yourself when using the hot soldering iron.

    • Gently tug or pull on the wire, and touch the tip of the hot soldering iron to the shiny solder point on the circuit board.

      • Be sure not to break the wire when tugging. Let the solder melt in order to remove the wire.

    • The wires should easily separate from the circuit board if the solder point is hot enough.

    • Be sure to perform this task for both the black and red wires.

    • NOTE: If the iron is not hot enough, you may encounter unsuccessful removal of the speaker wires. In order to correct this, let the soldering iron heat up completely, and try this step again.

  • Replacement of the Speaker

    • Obtain a new bass resonator/speaker component from the manufacturer.

    • Perform the steps in the reverse order to properly reassemble the device.

    • Be sure to connect the black wire to SPK- and the red wire to SPK+ when soldering the wires on the circuit board of the device.
