Ok, first off, I've had all the "I TOLD YOU SO's" that I need to hear from the wife. Now, down to business. The little guy wanted to hide some of his little 1/64 scale NASCAR racers. He found a beautiful hiding place (four actually) in the rear of my M60's. How on earth do I get them out of my M60's? We've taken stock of his collection and estimate there are 2-3 of them inside my mains. Quit laughing and help me.

Hi,

Just use an Allen-key type wrench and unscrew the four bolts on the lower woofer, pop it out carefully, unclip the two leads to the woofer, and feel around inside the enclosure. You might have to remove both woofers and shine a light inside. It would likely be easier if you lay the M60 on its side while you grope around inside the enclosure.

Be sure and reconnect the clips to the woofer terminals before you re-install the woofer(s).

Regards,

That's too easy Alan! Stop being all logical. I want to see what bizarre contraptions he makes to get the cars out.

As a collector I would suggest 1:18 scale, a little more expensive but too large to fit in the port.

sorry but I did laugh

Excellent idea!

Perhaps this could be turned into a fun game for the family and relatives over the holidays--plus it would be a good method of shedding calories from all that holiday food intake.

Each team of two would grasp opposite ends of the M60 and gently shake it to see if you could get one of the cars to pop out of the ports--kind of like that game I had as a kid where a BB-size ball rolled around in concentric circles inside a kind of plastic maze. You had to get the ball to drop through these notches and reach the inside of the circle.

Regards,

I have a pair of M60's as well in a full Axiom HT setup

I was a little disappointed to hear that the hookup wire from the crossover to the woofer was just clipped on.

Doesnt seem like that would be a very good type of electrical connection.

What do you all think about this?

Why do you think it would be a poor connection? What would you prefer, soldering them in place so that you can never remove them if the speaker should be damaged? I don't think that would result in any demonstrable change in the speaker.

I have SMA connectors in my lab for evaluating 12GHz SiGe parts that add almost no jitter at all. Connectors aren't inherently bad.

Gee thanks Ford! I'd like to buy him the bigger size cars too, but they don't travel well in numbers. He only has 40 some odd cars in his/my little collection. I'm hoping that a screen of some sort over the ports won't alter the beautiful sound they make. It wouldn't be so bad, but the little guy actually smiles when you ask him if he really put his cars in there....Sighs!!!
