    Any prior exp taking apart Altec Lansing Magnificent (A7)

    Hi -

    I need to repair the grill on an Altec Lansing Magnificent (a whole other problem). Related to that, I am going to have to take it apart and before I get into that I was wondering if anybody has done that before? Is it going to be an hour or a day? Does the grill just slide out once the top is off, or is it glued in there?

    Thanks,
    George

    Look up all older posts from "Wardsweb" ( Luther ) either here or over at AudioKarma .

    Also search out olderposts from "rloggie" .They would know the answer about removing the grill ( since at least one of those two used to own a pair of stock Magnificents ) .

    Luther also applies a lot of nice custom veneers to his projects ( so I figure he knows how to rip things apart & put them back together nicely ) .

    Nice. It's the first time I see this variation of the A7. Has it lost it port?

    Don't try to remove it! It will break in a million pieces. Fix it in place if you plan to keep these original. Earl, those look nice, especially the grills.

    I have what I believe is the first type of Magnificentís made. They have the flat lattice work not the curved. Turn them upside down. Then remove a small wood strip at the now top of the lattice. The lattice will now slide out. Be careful but thatís how I removed my without any damage.
