Have an old 2x12 horizontal slant cab - like a monitor wedge

Post by joe187 » Tue Aug 20, 2013 2:27 pm

Hi,

I have an old - not sure how old, but old, 2x12 horizontal wedge cab. It sits like a monitor wedge. It has two black shadows in it, and two high range controls that have been disabled. The cab is pretty beat up, but sounds fantastic. I would really like to replace the grill (big tear) and tolex. However, for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to get the grill off. I can't see any screws through the grill. I took the access panel off, there are none in the speaker board. Is it glued on? I sure hope not! Anyone have any ideas?

I have ben trying to get in touch with Mesa but their site is down. Anyone have the email address for support? Thanks. I don't want to call them with such a low level question. I know how busy they are.

I have the same problem. I have a 1x12 wedge monitor and I cannot figure out how to get the grille off.
Maybe Authorized Boogie can help explain?

Thank you!
Daniel

I have a 1x12 wedge monitor and I want to replace the speaker.

If I remove the back panel, the opening is too small for the speaker to come out thorough it.

I need to get the grille off but I cannot figure out how.
Maybe Authorized Boogie can explain how to do it?

Thanks in advance.
Daniel

maybe it is attached with some of that industrial strength velcro type stuff?
