The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

The grills are pressure fit. There's no special tools or tricks to make it easier to remove them. You might find it easier to get at the middle grille if you remove one of the side grilles first. 

Go slowly.

If you damage the grilles, unfortunately that's not covered under warranty, but you can get replacements from Bose Support.

They are easy enough to remove. Get something long and push out at the edges making sure you don't damage another grille doing it. They are held in with rubber seals which can be tight the first time they are removed..

I had a similar experience so got my wife to modify the front of the Music Store covers to include a thin sheet of protective plastic. No dents after that.

They are beautiful speakers but easily damaged at the front unfortunately.

Hi Donny,

Welcome to the forum!

The S1 speaker grille cannot be removed and placed back on again, as the act of removal breaks the tabs. If the speaker grille is removed, it will need to be replaced with a new one. As Bose do not sell the speaker grilles separately, only our repair team can replace this component.

Feel more. Do more. Be more.
