No zipper problems but my sub bag won't close all the way.

Re: Speaker bag zippers keep breaking

I accidentally bent one of my zipper pull tabs, but none of them have broke yet. My bags now FINALLY close all the way. I've had the F1 system since December of 2018. I find that if you can get the zippers all the way closed and can leave them like that for a while, the bags will eventually stretch a little. Very frustrating at first but the bags are a breeze to put on now.

Hi Everyone,

Here's a video showing how Bose recommends you put the bag on an F1 Subwoofer.

This is how I do it too. No broken zippers at this end.  I hope this helps.

That's the way I do it. Perfect. Is there any other way really?

Wouldn't flipping it over like that loosen up the wires inside the cabinet over time, or is that old school thinking?

I literally cut the bottoms off of my bags...  I got tired of fighting them!
