    What is the easiest, saftest way to get the grill cloth unit off of the cab for speaker inspection? Some sort of trick maybe? Seems it doesnt want to budge. Thanks

    Unless I am mistaken..SVT 8x10 grilles are one piece of plastic with mounts in the corners. The cloth is attatched to the plastic and the entire piece is designed to be easily removed by pulling the entire piece from the front of the cab.
  4. You need two screwdrivers. Start at the top. One in the left and one in the right. Slowly, and carefully pry it off.

    '70s grilles are wood framed and attach via plastic lego-like velcro.

    Newer cabs have faux-wood and use real velcro.
