B2 Rotate the Logos

You can rotate the Bose logo so it is parallel to the floor even if you have turned the B1 on its side. Chuck-at-Bose said, "... Maybe it's my kung fu grip, but I've had good luck with carefully pinching the logo and pulling at these points, then rotating 90 degrees:"

Be very careful with the fine ends of the logo because they can be easily broken off. You may even try to pull up in the middle with your fingernails on the edge instead of near the ends.

Go from this:

Here is a video showing how to do this on an F1 Model 812 Flexible Array Loudspeaker. It's the same on a B2 Bass Module.


Pull the logo straight out about ½ inch before you attempt to turn it. It is spring loaded, and the rear post is square. You have to clear the post (about ½ inch before you can turn it).

Another look.

After you rotate the logo make sure that the logo is flush with the grille so that it does not rattle when the music is playing.

Even though it is unlikely that you will have this combination of pieces, this is a fun picture.
