Taking apart harman/kardon subwoofer

\015 I need to take apart the subwoofer of my harman/kardon soundsticks. but i can't figure out how to do it. helppp?!\015

Answers :

Turn the sub upsidedown, carefully remove the clear rubber feet (these are a dome fitted over a mushroom top), using the toothed gripper cutout of a pair of pliers (when closed it is the eye shaped opening visible on one side), grip the mushroom firmly but not so hard as to crush the mushroom and gently ease clockwise and anticlockwise (the mushroom is at one end of a clear plug blocking access to the four screws that hold the two parts together.
Be carefull to use the correct size screwdriver so as not to damage the screw heads as they are tight.
On reassembly, you may need to use glue to replace the rubber feet if the mushroom becames damages during removal.
The subwoofer seems to make the perfect residence for a Daddy Longlegs spider. Mine has been in there for weeks and seems to be loving how the LED light attracts small moths. I just took mine apart [using the advice above], gave it a good clean, but given easy it was to take apart, didn't have the heart to remove the spider out. I left him in there, reassembled the unit without any hassle at all and the by next morning, he was back in business. :-)

I have a set of stereo computer speakers, Altec Lansing, Model #BX1121 ''Powered Audio System'' that has a subwoofer and a left and right speaker. When I plug the system in and turn the power on, I get nothing, as if there is no power going to the system. It is manufactured for 120V-60Hz-30W. I am currently overseas where the standard voltage is 220V. I suspect someone may have plugged the system into 220V by mistake. If so, could this have damaged the system.
