JBL SRX828sp T-Nut fell off
« on: January 17, 2016, 03:54:34 pm »

Hi guys!

Last month I became Im a proud owner of JBL's latest SRX828sp subs. I havent tested my speakers as today. In the meantime I bought a set of caster kits from JBL. I removed the bolts from the speakers to make way for the casters but all of a sudden two of the T-nuts fell off inside the cabinet.

Will you guys know if it will affect my warranty if I open and remount/fix the nut or should I send it back to JBL or one of their service centers for repair? This will cost an arm and a leg to ship.

Thanks Brandon. I wonder if Debbie was able to put those T-Nuts back?

PM'd you Josh. Haven't gotten around to mine yet and its not been a problem so far but I will get it done soon as my outdoor  and larger shows start and I'll need to use them more.

Replied and thank you for the speedy response Debbie! I wonder how many owners have encountered this issue. Im torn between fixing it myself or sending this to a service center. My T-nut fell inside the cabinet. I wonder if this will rattle inside.

It is not a deal breaker really. It should not void the warranty unless you go hog wild trying to get inside. Simply removing a handle and getting to the thing with a magnet should be fine.

Can't do it that way, I tried.....I don't see a way of getting to the T nuts without removing a driver. According to he JBL tech I spoke to, it wouldn't be a problem unless the amp showed signs of tampering.

Yes it will rattle-until it finds a magnet to stick to.  Then the rattle stops.

I was fortunate that when I took the grille off, I put my arm through and in between the separating boards, reached back and to the left ( the side where the T nut fell) and immediately put my hand on the fallen T nut......Just a fluke. I wouldn't want them rattling around in there. However, I did notice a lot of wadding at the back of the cabinet which could  'catch'the T nut and stop it from rattling around too much.
