  2. Hey all! Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm working on four (4) systems, 2 have three (3) TFM 55's sledge hammers for the bang and umph, one has a CT-29V and the other has a CT-28V for directing traffic. The third has three TFM-45 high head room bangers, it has a C-16 for directing traffic and the purpose is to well,,,, see how it performs against the other two,,,, blame Roland for that lol The later is umm,,,, well and please don't be upset, is a bit of a hodge-podge to be honest. Basically its an old Toshiba mini system that's in the process of getting two (2) TFM-35 framing hammers fitted to it to replace the tired amps that came with it

  4. In our area, in addition to more ..., we've got a population explosion of squirrels this spring. Which, has brought in packs of coyotes. . Wish they would take out some of the rabbits. How do we know? The roadkill on one of the roads out of my area is littered with an unusually high amount of squirrel road kill. Circle of life, Darwin, and the predator food chain, engages with mother nature and the physics of fast moving automobiles.
  5. Welcome @BigB, glad you found us! Keep us posted as you put your 500 back in service.
  6. if the relays are not engaging, your amp is likely in protection. Something has gone wrong. Suggest you start with downloading the service manual. Check the output transistors for shorts. Also check for DC offset at the outputs (up stream from the relays). This may help narrow down why its going into protection.

  9. Hello all. I recently acquired some carver gear. An M500t amp and a TFM 35 amp. Looking for some direction on the M500. I understand it’s a dual voltage unit using low and high voltages on the rails. My issue is the relay doesn’t close upon power up. I’m leaning toward the op amp or something in that circuit. All the rectifiers check out good but I’m only getting around 30v on the low V side. Not the 40v it’s showing in the manual. The relay is good as I have supplied 24v to the coil to test it. I know these amps are different than most I’ve worked on but I’m ready to tackle this one. Thanks in advance for any input and I look forward to interacting with all of you. Cheers.

  11. Yesterday
  12. Hi Ed, Kirk and Russ and spouses planning to attend (cabin 11). Called Chelsea for reservation dates but she was out of the office today. Will update when I hear back from her.
  13. With that TX-11, you will be able to pull in FM stations from miles, and I mean LOTS of miles, away. IF, that is, IF!, you get yourself an FM antenna. I have my internal home cable system connected to a big antenna in the attic, which pulls in FM from 200+ miles away. Probably get more reception, if I didn'thave 100ft of cabling, distribution boxes, etc, in the mix, but it works great for me.
  14. Welcome, @tankdcrank, glad you found us. We love pictures, please post your audio rig sometime, and brag a bit!
  15. Thanks Tim Now that's the kind of music you hear coming out of one of the rooms at an audio show!!!!
