    How to open a JBL EON 515XT Powered Speaker

    I am trying to repair a JBL EON515XT. I am confident the problem resides in the Input PCB/Panel, but I don't know how to get to the darn thing. I have successfully dismantled the speaker to the point where I have access to everything except the Input PCB/Panel. Do the side pocket handles need to be removed? If so, how is this accomplished? Anyway, it is a bit embarrassing to ask a basic question like this, but I hope someone with EON515 experience will provide guidance. Dissembling this speaker is a real puzzler!

    Perhaps the exploded view might be of some help:

    Thanks for the excellent suggestion. Sadly, the exploded view provided by JBL is too fuzzy to help. I believe removing the two "Handle Pocket Assemblies" would be extremely helpful, but the question is how?

    It's open, and far easier than I expected! I simply pushed the amp assembly from the inside and it slipped right out (the handle pocket assemblies had nothing to do with amp removal). Although I had already removed the screws from the internal shield and amp assembly, the amp didn't want to come out, but a little push from inside the cabinet was all it took. Removing the amp assembly also afforded access to the input PCB/Panel where I needed to make repair.

    Hey guys.
    faced the same issue and it was great hint pushing out the back of the box.
    now i have access to the PBC/panel but i now need to find what makes my OUTPUT not work.

    In fact i got two problems:
    1. changing the EQ in position makes a VERY loud crack when the box is turned on.
    2. the OUTPUT is broken. The box itself works fine, but when try to use the LOOP/MIX function via OUTPUT the box is shut down somehow (no out at JBL speakers and not out at external devices i loop to), no matter whether it is in LOOP or MIX.

    does any one has hint what on the PCB went broken?
    thankful for any idea.

    cheers

    The 4 screws on the front of the horn fooled me, Most cabs have all the screws remove from the back
