Answers :

I fixed a similar problem I was having. It requires a little work.

\015\012Take out the four screws from under the broken speaker. Carefully\015\012remove the cover, separating the speaker from the base. The two are\015\012wired together so don't pull them apart with force. Then remove the\015\012single screw, which is much larger the the previous four, and separate\015\012the speaker from the top cover.
\015\012
\015\012If you chose you can remove the wires from the speaker, they just snap on, but its not required.
\015\012
\015\012What I found is the speaker issue is not with the wire or the power,\015\012but the speaker it's self. On the back there is a big round metal\015\012piece. On my speaker that piece was pushed towards the front of the\015\012speaker. When I looked at the good speaker, that big piece was all the\015\012way back. So I simply pulled it back and presto, instant fix!

\015\012I hope this works for you.

I just want to confirm that the solution above from francis 8 works perfectly. We have two sets of Creatures in our offices, one had been shelved (by someone less persevering than me) due to this problem years ago and my set started this trouble a few days ago. Troubleshot everything, every cable, setting, combination, spare speakers etc - nothing worked. Opening the offending speaker and pulling back the metal weight behind the speaker cone was the solution for BOTH of our units. \015\012
\015\012Big smiles all around :-) \015\012
\015\012Note - When you've opened the plastic shell and loosened the speaker from its mounting, the the big round metal piece/magnet sits within the actual speaker 'cage', slightly behind the speaker cone. It's tight but movable and can be pulled all the way back as far as it can go inside it's housing, away from the speaker cone. \015\012
\015\012Not sure why it gets pulled forward, but it isn't fixed in position and so could clearly get bumped by dropping the speaker or a reasonable impact of some sort. Once bumped forward it would severely limit cone movement and therefore volume.
