    Quick question for the brains in this forum -
    how can i remove the front metal grills of my GK cabinets
    (I have a 2x10 mounted on a 4x10 - with a Backline 600 head)

    I am looking to paint the grills without doing any damage to the speakers themselves.

    Also, I was wondering if anyone had a good lead to replacing the casters on my 4x10 (bought used, two wheels are shredded). May just end up hitting the hardware store though.

    Show is tomorrow night so any feedback would be appreciated
    Thanks guys!

    i don't have a GK cab. but looking at pics if you push hard you can slide the grill off to one of the sides and then slide it back over while pulling out on the grill. hope this makes sense and is right. I would wait for someone else to answer but if no one tells ya try this out. but make sure what I say is possible before you try it.

    My combo's grill (GK Backline112) can be easily unscrewed and removed.

    Question: Why would you do that?

    i want to remove the grill to paint it white before the next gig.
    Guitarist has two 4x10s painted white, and since the sides of my cab are carpeted (i.e. look like crap when painted), I wanted to just have my front grill(s) white.

    i am not sure about the sliding technique. will have to take a look at it tonight at rehearsal.

    i found great casters at Home Depot, btw (2nd part of my original post)
    Thanks for the feedback. Just wanted to know if theres some hidden screw somewhere to ease in its removal. would hate to force it, put it back and have the dreaded "rig rattle"

    Both my RBH and SBX cabs are just held in with 4 corner screws. I would powdercoat it for durability.
