Introduction

On this guide, the aim is to teach how to disassemble the Sony SRS-X3 bluetooth speaker in order to replace the speakers in the unit. This teardown is fairly simple, and only requires two tools. This speaker replacement is being completed because of a humming sound coming from the unit when music is being played.

Pop off front speaker face (dark grey with little holes) by pushing out 3 tabs where screws were previously located and sticking spudger in crack where grey speaker face meets the outer shell You may really have to pry on this part, it is not easy to remove and will pop out when released

  • Speaker wire connectors are made to connect very snug, so they should be hard to remove. Give it a good tug and they should pop off the male end
