    I know it's between the 2nd input and volume knob (vib channel) on the circuit board - however - only the underneath of the board is showing and there's only the little solder "blobs" showing - it's hard to actually identify which ones go to the cap unless you've already done this modification. . My intention is to use a solder wick to remove the cap from the underside and hopefull it will fall out and I can remove it. (otherwise I'll have to take the entire friggin front of the amp apart to get at it). If someone has a decent picture of this location and can draw a circle or something to identify the 2 "blobs" - I would appreciate it very much. The location schematic doesn't help at all. Thanks

    Sorry I don't have a DRRI to photograph directly , but I did add 2 dots to represent the solder "blobs" and circled the C-10 cap on the layout schematic. Hope this helps.

    Yes thank you very much - but I actually need a pphoto of the area on the actual circuit board that shows which "blobs" they are, but thanks for trying - I realy appreciate it.

    It'l take you just as long to take the amp apart to figure out what you did if you unsolder the wrong thing. I wouldn't recomend shortcuts.

    Just my .02

    It wasn't that hard either. Now I just need you to circle the blobs and return. Thanks everyone!!
