    Hello
    I just got an Ampeg SVT 810E and i hear a discrete buzzing from one of the spekers. It is not something important. At higher volumes i don't hear it. I think something is not tighten well. Or... i don't know...
    My question is how can i remoce the grille cloth to look at the speaker ?
    Thank you !

    It should just be held in place with velcro in the corners. Get a finger or a small screw driver between the grill and the frame and pry gently.

    If the Ampeg logo plate is intact, Ampeg recommends you backout one of the plate mounting screws enough to grip the screw head with a pair of plyers. Use a cloth over the screw head so the plyer teeth don't score it. Then get a grip with the plyers and pull; as said above, the grill cloth frame is stuck to the cabinet with velcro, so it should simply tear off as you apply force. The velcro then allows you to reverse the process to remount the grill.

    I just wanted to add.... I've got BOTH a USA (black) & Vietnam (anniversary, silver edition) version of the 8x10E. The USA with white piping -- that grill comes off easily. But, my newer AV version (from Vietnam) was not cooperating. I found this & tried it... worked great! The first couple velcro pieces take quite a bit of force, but the rest are much easier.

    Just wanted to bump this for more to read.. in case they have the same issues as I did.

    Unscrew a screw in the AMPEG logo partially. Use that screw to get a grip with a pair of pliers and pull....
