Speaker dilemma.....

I was installing a different speaker into my cab this afternoon, and in trying to get all of the screws in, I discovered that one of them had jammed into the nut that's pressed in to the front of the cab. I tried and tried to get it unstuck, only to find that the entire assembly is now loose. Is there any way to get it out? Short of removing the tolex? It seems that the baffle is installed and then the tolex is put on over it. Am I correct? Any suggestions? Thanks. Steve

Well, there are 4 nuts of some type installed in the front of the speaker baffle, which the screws that hold the speaker in screw into. I believe that's pretty standard for most combo cabs. They are installed in the front of the baffle. One of the screws I was using to install my speaker got bound up inside one of the nuts. In trying to unstick it, the whole thing came loose. Tomorrow, I'm going to see if the front panel comes off from the baffle. If that's the case, then more than likely, I'll be able to get if all apart. We'll see.....

Sounds like you stripped the threads on a T-nut. Take pliers and pull back on the screw/bolt to reseat the T-nut, if it will go. Then you'll have to unscrew the old bolt. If it's stripped and won't come out, then you'll need to get a hacksaw blade and cut off the screw head.

After that you remove your speaker, put an appropriate sized straight tip screwdriver through the back of the baffle board, pop out the T-nut, install a new one, using plumbers pliers to press it in. Then get a new screw/bolt (likely 10/32 machine screw 1" long) and reinstall your speaker.

Bet you wonder how I know all this? :barf

I see you're in SoCal, shoot me an email or call if you need some more info or help.

Thanks, Jim. I"m going to work on it tomorrow. Hopefully, the front panel will unscrew from the baffle. That will make it much easier. I'll keep you posted. Steve

If the T anchor is stripped and inaccessible, and you have an 8 mounting hole speaker, I would just skip the T and put in a couple of fat screws on either side. Assuming a 4 T setup currently.
