I've been the happy owner of model 5's since the summer of '99. I'm sure that the crossover bias batteries have run down since their lifetime was originally estimated at about 7 years.
I tried to follow the directions in the owner's manual to remove the sub amplifier and crossover board, but I couldn't get the amplifier out. I'm an EE and I've been inside of some very complicated equipment, so I think I can handle this job.
(I really don't want to bother John at Audio Connection with replacing these batteries because he's about an hour and a half drive from my house.)
Has anyone here replaced the batteries? For removing the amplifier, how many screws are there and where are they located? I removed the two readily accessible screws but it didn't release the amplifier.
John is always free to help via phone call, if you want his cell give me a PM and I will pass it along. I will send it you private now,check your mail......tell him Chad gave it to you and that I said happy holidays!
