Question about Digidesign Mbox 2 Barebone
Please....how do i open the mbox 2 pro...something is loose inside and i want to fix it?
M-Box 2 Pro- 2 small black screws under rubber "feet" on the bottom(back)- 1 shiny screw under "CE" sticker on bottom- 10-12 small black screws under the faceplate sticker= DUMB- then one more small army of small black screws to get the faceplate off the metal casing-(remove carefully as there is a small ribbon connector from the faceplate to the chassis-pull up on small black sides where it connects to the faceplate.)- pop off top- reveals about a dozen small shiny screws holding the two "mother boards" together-left off there because I only needed to get to the volume resistor. good luck with the rest. good design too Digidesign.

There are five shiny screws and one black one located behind the plastic front label (the part that has the markings for the input levels and switches), plus three behind the serial number label, inside the handle part you open with the allen key. This removes the front panel, then, there are about twelve screws around the plastic casing, attaching the casing to the inner metal encasing.
There are three screws behind the foam strip on the metal casing, which attach a heavy duty metal strip to the inner casing... the rest are obvious.
This is how to deconstruct the casing in the event that something is rattling inside.
Keep in mind, if you still have a warranty on your MBOX 2, you won't anymore once you deconstruct it. So I don't advise it unless your device is well past warranty.
Though, if something is indeed rattling inside, I'm sure that's a breach of warranty conditions anyway.
You had best check on that first, but you might end up taking her apart anyway.

There is one more screw hidden under the bottom label (near the sign CE) just perforate thru it !
