    I have Harman Kardon satellite speakers and one just stopped working. Hooked it up to working front speakers and no sound or even a hiss. Is there anyway to fix it? I can't even figure out how to open it up! :sure: Why do they suddenly die?

    Thanks in advance!

    Could be anything from a loose connection terminal on the speaker to a broken solder or even simply a blown speaker/voice coil. however if this is from a HTB (home theater in a box) system; you'll be buying a new one to replace---->NOT repair it. Most of those cheap HTB type speaker systems are compromised of particle press and are sealed/glued shut without the ability to open it up without literally breaking it apart into pieces.

    You are correct. I bought this back in 2000 before I knew any better. :) Technically it isn't a HTB per se as the speakers & sub were sold separately and I just paired them with the same brand receiver. But you are right about being sealed.

    Now I need to find someone who may have one or two of these just collecting dust in a closet. FWIW, a TS1 or TS2 satellite speaker is what I need.

    Thanks for looking that up. I found it too. I contacted the seller and there are a few more days on it.

    I was told to NOT run my receiver with a speaker missing as is can mess up my receiver so I was hoping for something quick so I don't have to use my TV speakers. I could even go with a different brand pair.

    Edit: Picked up some used cheap speakers and bid on the HKs so I am all set.
