To start i finally got my cube some usb speakers, i wanted to hear its startup chime and the usb dongle would not do that. The set i got had bad foam surrounds. Well I searched the Internet and couldn't find enough info to know for sure if the pro speakers and the cube pros were the same. I need the repair so I did it just the same. Upon removal they had totally different part numbers. The apple pro speakers from the non USB had a longer magnet area, leading me to believe they may need more power or have greater range ( I don't know just guessing here ). I clipped the wires, soldered the new speakers in place, put them back together and plugged them in. They sound great. They sound way better than the raspy noise with the bad foam. I know cubes are way old but I think it's still a very nice display of apple engineering.
