Has anyone built a dolly for their amp to make it easier to move around? Even an HT-40 is too heavy to just up and move. When I had my 5150 I built a 5-wheeled dolly for it within a week. The 5150 was 85 pounds versus the 65 for the HT-40, but I'm definitely needing some wheels! I may even build a hard cover to latch onto the top of that so the entire encased amp could be moved without lifting, though I've yet to figure out what to do about the 3 flights of stairs. Image Has anyone built anything similar? Please post pics! -Rod-

Yeah...but a single 2x4, a dozen deck screws and 4 wheels is all that's needed for a basic setup ;) -Rod-

Good point. i used a homemade dolly to move my old 5150 around, but it was only around the house and over carpet. 85 pounds is too much to lug around Image -Rod-
