Hi, I've bought from a thrift store two Warfedale 506 speakers. I checked everything looked fine.
However at the store I overlooked that one of the binding posts (where the speaker wire is attached with a plug)
was broken of. Probably I saw three plugs/posts on the terminals that were allright, the fourth must have been hidden by a bundle of old speaker wire that was hanging over it. So I didn't see it untill I got home.
I did not discover parts that were broken off in my car so it must have been broken already in the shop.
However...I want to fix it....how can I get into this speaker? I don't see screws in the housing to get inside.
I never done this but want to try...the speakers didn't cost that much so I don't need an expensive repair.
So would like to try myself. Can I lift the small terminal? or should I get into the speaker by lifting something
like the woofer? How can I do this?

They say the woofer has a bajonet ring that has to go a bit to the left by sticking a screwdriver in one of the square little holes,
and then ticking it to the left so the woofer comes off ( I cant do it yet, it doesn't budge) tips anyone?

Easy... remove the woofer and reach through to the inside of the terminals where you can release the nut that hold them on.
