Default Cracking open a Galaxy Audio PA amp

David Nebenzahl wrote in
.com:

I inherited a repair job that I can't get started because I
can't get the damn amp open.

It's a Galaxy Audio Core PA5X140 all-in-one PA. It's a
tough little unit, with a die-cast metal chassis set into a
thick rugged plastic (polypropylene?) case, that can sit on
top of a mike stand. Similar to this one:
http://galaxyaudio.com/MSPA.jsp. The front of the chassis
has 6 screws into the case, and there's one on the back I
removed, but I still can't get the chassis out of the case.
I tried prying the case, thinking there might be some
cast-in lugs I could open, but no luck, and I didn't want
to risk chewing up the edge of the case.

Does anyone have any idea how to open up this unit?


I have noticed that sometimes there is a screw (or more than
one) under one (or more) stick-on label(s).

Good idea, but no screws lurking underneath labels here.
