The movers damaged something…
Not having any surround sound on the right was actually bothering me enough to do something about it. After a failed attempt at soldering, I e-mailed Definitive Technology.
Thanks for your recent email to Definitive Technology. First, I’ll have a replacement binding post shipped right out.
Next, in order to replace the binding post you would remove the grille and the 6 x small rubber cups or grommets that hold the grille pegs to the front of the cabinet with needle nose pliers. After the rubber cups are removed you’ll see 6 x Phillips Head screws. You’ll remove these 6 x screws. At this point you could remove the front baffle from the rest of the cabinet. Once the front baffle is removed, you’ll have full access to the binding post and you can remove the nut that holds the binding post to the back of the cabinet.
It did indeed come…
Opening up was mildly challenging (they use a lot of cement), but doable if you have a screwdriver that can reach down there—my Wiha jeweler set was barely long enough.
But in the end it worked out great. Thanks, Definitive!
One thought on “Speaker repair”
Hi, I have the same problem with my ProMonitor 1000. I took out the rubber ring and instead of the screw I found what looks like a plastic tube closed at the bottom. I can’t reach the screw because of it and at this time I could not remove this little” inverted cap”. Did you find the same when you repaired your speaker? I so can you tell me how you extracted it?
Thank you in advance, best regards.
