Hey, I sure could use some help on this. I have a Spider IV 75 watt amp. The amp got soup poured into the brain via the screws that attach the handles to the top of the case. I need to remove the brain from the cabinet and clean it out and make sure there is nothing connecting up to something else.
I have contacted Tech Support and they told me to remove the screws from the top and push it backwards front to back., Only one problem. The brain is attached to a thick metal plate that has 5 RED screw heads that I see and that plate is wedged into the amp's box top and bottom. There is NO way to remove those screws so the plate no longer stops the brain from sliding backwards and out of the case. AND the only way that I see is to actually split open the case at the top where the top and side are Jigsawed into one another. Also the Speaker cover cloth is mounted to a board and that board is also part of the problem in that it jigsaws into the bottom of the brain and is in between the plate and the brain being removed from front to back.,
Has anyone removed this before? Is there any trick of device that I am not aware of to get the brain out of the case? The way this looks is that the brain was bolted to this metal plate that the controls stick through and that metal plate must be removed from the sides of the case before that brain is going anywhere. So, that means splitting open the case at the top so that I can actually push the entire board that the brain is attached to via that plate and slide the top out of the jigsaw'd top and sides woods.
Any help would be appreciated.
