Replacing a subwoofer amplifier should only require about 10-20 minutes and a standard Philips screwdriver.
***Make sure amplifier is unplugged before proceeding!!!***
- Remove perimeter screws (typically 6-10 screws)
*Example pictured below. Amp plate will vary by model.
- Once screws are removed, give the amp plate a good tug to break the gum seal holding it in position
- Once the amp has been removed, two wire leads running to the speaker portion of the subwoofer should now be visible
- Note: These are push-on connectors. However, to detach, they may have a slight locking "clasp" in the middle of the connector. A small pair of pliers, or pressing the tip of a small screwdriver into the middle of the connector should unlock this "clasp"
If the subwoofer has an LED indicator light on the front, a wire which runs to the light will also be visible once the amp is removed
Remove the LED wire and plug it in the exact same position on the replacement amplifier
Once these are in place, slide the replacement amplifier back into position and put the screws back in position
