Default Cracking open a Galaxy Audio PA amp

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?

Remove 6 screws from front, 1 screw and 1 nut for speaker jack on back. Get a couple of thin flat blade screwdriver to break the seal around the front metal cage to the plastic back cover. it should slide out easily.

I called OP David Nebenzahl. For your information sir, he's been sitting by his computer staring at the screen for the last five years waiting for that very answer. While he's enormously grateful, he hasn't responded publicly with a thank you yet because he's not doing very well. It seems that in the last five years, he's ignored his health, is suffering from vitamin D deficiency, and put on a lot of weight. He also took up smoking. But with his amp now open, he'll be back in form in less than two years according to him...
