Hie my speaker doesn't recharge anymore the port were you connect to charge seems to have broken. I was wondering if youll be kind enough to tell me the name of that particular part and how to swap it. Thank you

More images of the main board assembly. The pinouts of the main flex are actually stated on the board which is a huge plus. A CSR Bluetooth SoC and MXIC flash are provided.

The battery pack is on a connector and can be removed before all of this is taken out. Battery is a 2 cell 18650 pack with protection built in; 7.4V

Two 7W speakers with strong magnets are included in this speaker; it is marketed with a 20W power output. Excursion is about 7-10mm at its peak. Two 7W speakers with strong magnets are included in this speaker; it is marketed with a 20W power output. Excursion is about 7-10mm at its peak.

Two passive radiators are present inside the device. They're fairly heavy but rubberized, and they resonate and are tuned for low frequency reproduction. These move a LOT when it's playing. 7-10mm per side. Two passive radiators are present inside the device.

This is great, thank you Larry. I'd wondered about the possibility of upgrading the battery to one that lasts longer between charges but I had no idea how to open the case. It didn't occur to me that the screws would be under the rubber feet!

Dear Larry, can you give me capture specific card power close to battery. Because i got resistor blown in that card, and i don't know specific value of this resistor. Many Thanks in advance

One speaker started to give a lot of distortion making it unusable. Repositioned speaker in the heavy (magnet) housing and it's all good again.

Thank you for the opening tips and pics!
