Tech How-to: Disassembly of Logitech Z-10 Desktop Speakers

First and foremost, when working with any electronic gear, make sure the equipment is completely unplugged from any power source, including USB.


Tools needed:

– a thin-bladed knife (a utility knife is best, as it will likely get covered with epoxy) – a Phillips head screwdriver – pliers (needle-nose is preferable)


1. Take the thin-bladed knife and, at one of the front speaker housing corners, wedge it between the black, plastic, speaker housing face and the silver trim piece.

2. Gently and slowly rock the knife back and forth to cut through the adhesive that’s holding the face plate to the speaker housing. Take care to keep the knife lateral to the face plate… the back of the plate has a black coating on it, making scratches transparent and very visible from the front.

3. Make 4-5 passes around the speaker housing with the knife, cutting a little further into the adhesive each time.


4. Once the face plate starts to come loose, with your hands, gently go around the housing a few times, prying the plate up a little more each time. Since it’s plastic and could break, be sure to not bend it too far.

5. Once the plate is off, grab the Phillips head screwdriver and loosen the eight screws holding the housing together.

6. Once the screws are loosened, slowly pull the housing apart. Be careful because the speaker wires don’t have much extra slack.

7. Using the needle-nose pliers, remove the speaker cable leads and the tweeter leads.

With that, you should have successfully disassembled the Logitech Z-10 speakers.

In this case, it turns out the problem is a blown speaker, as you can see the tear in the cone. Boooooo!!!!

Thanks for this post and will be trying this soon to take a look at a speaker that is rattling. If one seems to be bad, is there a way to fix it?

One of these speakers could very likely be replaced, but tracking down a suitable replacement might be a different matter. eBay is probably the best place to start, though. Otherwise, a Z-10 speaker could probably be reconed but, honestly, it’s probably not worth the expense and effort. Good luck!!
