Problem with Hartke Cab

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by munkycharmz, Sep 21, 2004.


  1. Allright, So I have a Hartke 4x10 Transporter series cabinet. The problem is the input came unattached to the plastic holder in the back of the cab where you plug it in. I unscrewed the screws and took the plastic off. The wires and input had fallen down into the cab. I tried using a bent coathanger to fish it out but was unsucessful and was scared of hurting the cab. How do I get into the cab? This is something I think I can do myself. Do I go through the front or the back?

    thanks for any help.

    If the Transporter series is like the other Hartke cabinets, you'll need to lay the cabinet on its back take the grille off and remove one of the 10s. Be VERY, VERY careful when taking out the screws on the woofer as a slip of a screwdriver can ruin your day (and an expensive speaker).

    Don't move the woofer too far as the internal wiring is pretty short.

    Go slow, be careful and good luck!!!!
