Dismantling 6040A for painting

This may sound crazy to some but I have a grey/silver pair of 6040A's that i would like to have professionally painted to better match my home decor.
Can anyone offer any guidance on how best to take the cast aluminum enclosure apart for painting ?

Regards, Daniel.

Hi D,

It is a relatively easy job, just start at the bottom and work your way up. Everything is basically plug and play, make sure that the speakers have been disconnected from the power for a while, it is also a good idea to turn the power switch on with the speakers unplugged, this will ensure that the capacitors are drained.

The only problem you will encounter is trying to remove the bass driver grille, it is held in with silastic and is impossible to remove without damage.

I pulled a pair apart and painted them white for a trade show, after having problems with the first grille, i decided to leave the second one in and mask the grille up.

Good luck..
