can you no knock up some sort of wooden bungs for the X1s.....

oooooor store all the bass cabs facing downwards with the ports as flush to the floor as possible and if not make up some 6inch plinths so they can sit on that and be completely flush with the surface to stop the little blighters getting at your drivers and anything else they will pretty much eat through. if they want to get in, they will!

buy those sticky mouse pads and line they all around the storage area. and buy a few 'humane' mouse traps, then once caught wack'em with a mallet. iv found they do have problems coming back from the dead..........

Put some rat poison in some corner and be done with it.

got me thinking now guys i could make some trays up that snugly fit the fronts of the x1's and stack them front down so they cannot get inside the cabs then set traps cant do the poison route as got pets everywhere too risky

poison does bugger all.... get a sodding cat. ok that was extreme.

theres some very inventive DIY mouse traps you can build that take them out one at a time. its a slower and longer process BUT it makes you feel oyur getting some where as you kill them one at a time and you can SEE the results.

remember if you can slide a pencil into a hole, the mouse can crawl through it. i plugged a hole in my sisters kitchen by using expanding foam a little on one side and while it was curing shoved a bag of poison from the other end in and THEN stick expanding foam in the other. this way ven if the little buggers started chewing through the expanding foam (and they will) they start chew through poison. THEY WILL AND DO die this way.

you have to get inventive.... they are smart, dont think one one second they are "just little stupid mice" so wen i say flush to the floor for your cabs i do mean flush. make it so its hard to even slide a sheet of paper under them. it may mean and bit of planing or sanding of your cabs to make them straight but in the long run it will save on re-cones and drivers.

Ants!... dont get me started on ants... even more difficult then mice!

  Haha, the things we have to put up with! I can remember pulling one of my HD215s out of the shed one day to find little mousy foot prints all over it, oh sh*t I thought but a quick grope around inside (oo-er!) fully expecting to get bit by said mouse or a big spider or summat revealed no damage and I just stored them face down or tight against each other after that and never any suffered mouse-munched cones. 
 
 P.S. Ants are B*stards!

oh oh OH!.... i know, as long as you have an even number of matching boxes you COULD ratchet strap them facing each other! job done!

but still check out DIY mouse traps, some are feckin' awsome!

one of my fav's is teetering a thin length of timber (i mean like a 30cm ruler sort of bit of timber) on the very edge of a table with jam on the end hanging over a deep glass tank. the bottom of the tank had an inch of bleach in it. the mouse craws along to get the jam and falls into the tank to be found dead the next morning. just pull out the slither of timber. clean off. reset and wait for the next mouse to get hungry.

You cud fix that cone , with some cone from same driver and some flexible glue for speker cones

i would try , 

also no need to be bashing up mouse ect only tryin to survive doing there thing , just as we all humans are...your own fault tbh leant mtself put box toghter to stop them getting in or less chance ect, had it happen to me too over the years , didnt have a vengeance on a mouse man, 

just one of them things
