This is great! Well done! Thank you. I dropped mine and there's not any sound now. What would you think happened and where should i start?

[deleted] - Réponse

Perhaps open it up and then use a multimeter or some other speakers to see if you're getting any output from the amplifier? Sometimes the speaker drivers are damaged by dropping.

Larry Chen -

Do you know the part number for the speaker or where to buy it ? After a trip to the beach I now have a cracking sound in one of the speakers.

Thanks for the help

Hi,

Where can i buy genuine Bose replacement speakers for the Soundlink?

Scott - Réponse

Do you know if the the other speakers were passive radiators or powered subwoofers? Bose claims that the are subwoofers but I'm skeptical
