  1. I serviced both units. the c-19 belonged to another member of the site who sent it in for servicing. the preamplifier passed tests on the test equipment then was put into an audio system and monitored for a day. the day of shipping it was tested that morning again before it left. unfortunately I dont have crystal ball to see what happened to the unit between the time it left and the time it arrived. obviously something is amiss in the unit and needs to be looked at unfortunately. Parts labor and return shipping cost are all included in your 3 year warranty. Shipping it back is small price to pay…I wish the unit would have arrived in the same condition as it left but it didn’t A simple phone call voicemail saying ray this pos c-19 not working correctly need to send back woulda sufficed. as far as the c-16 the same service and testing was done to several other members here. Which no one has any complaints. now the treble gain is very subtle most times you have to push in 8khz switch to see a sizeable difference however my theory is you said the c-16 sounds like shit and treble has no gain, what I’m fearing is that pop was a square wave and tweeters don’t like them at all. I would verify your tweeters are still working … im sorry this didn’t go as planned unfortunately here we are. If you feel cost is too high to ship here nellion audio is in Michigan which much closer then California. you can send it to Greg and I’ll cover the repair cost. Either way the choice is yours. Ray
  2. You have to push in the tone control switch for the treble or bass knobs to work.
  3. David there should be no popping of any kind either there’s an issue or something is hooked up wrong. we know it pops with the c-19. Remove the c-19 and put the c-16 in. Does it still pop with the c-16? if it doesn’t and plays fine then the obviously the c-19 isn’t working correctly and you need to send it back. if it continues to pop with the c-16 then I’d be looking at the amplifier and all connections made. regardless of which unit is having an issue if any you’re covered. Thanks
  4. Well, kept finding pretty good deals so now I ended with a 2nd m4.0t and another tfm-55x lol… addiction at its finest
  5. Yes they are the same only difference is the tfm-4.0 has the black face and was only produced for one year and limited quantities, I think that’s how the story goes
  6. 10000uf 100v caps are sold out everywhere especially the 4 lead ones. there’s only one supplier I know that has 4 lead 10000uf 100v caps but they’re 10 each I only use 10000uf 100v caps on m500t builds. on tfm models I use a increased cap of 12000uf 100v Panasonic’s i can sell you a set of those for 12 dollars plus shipping
  7. I waltz my fatass down to the local Walmart go to car audio pretty blue 14 gauge wire 50ft spool for 12.97 which puts us at the 25-30 cent mark sometimes it’s on sale for 9.99 which drops it under 25cents a foot cheers it’s copper wire and not cca
  8. beware of the last 10 second 20hz drop will clip the amp like nothing
  9. fronts backs only drivers different between the two are the ribbons and the Piezo tweeters on the top back set only reason why they play well together searching for a 2nd set of iia/rs but that’s pretty much non existent
  10. Been a long time for a system update. took me about a year to get to this point. Still not finished. Eventually the system so far 2x carver 1.0t magnet killer option 2 power plants operate the Empire State buildings upfront and the Eiffel towers in the back (stereo) 2x carver cathedral of pain 8 channel power plants powering 7 channels of the atmospheric pressure system 1x carver total fkn madness 75 giga watt power plant powering 2 18” a home down foundation killers in my designed boxes 1x Sony ear synthesizer 3100 for stereo and multi chan processing 1x lg 120hz 4k visuals 2x 20tb HD’s for 4K visual streaming 1x Sony 4x eye processor player 7x Sony atmospheric pressure system with 50khz signal output on super tweeters. (Multi channel only) 3x intrusive ai overlord voice recognition system (controls all TVs and audio in every room as well as smart plugs by voice command or smart app) audio playback is through flac and 24 bit uhd streaming sewell banana plugs throughout monoprice cables 400+ft of speaker wire ghost wire for the walls mount it for wall mounts Empire State buildings piggy back as the front channels for 7.2.2 Stereo consists of 4.2 1 rigid electro shock therapy protector for tv player hdd hidden under top shelf no line conditioners amp to wall like the good lord intended Anyways enough of the snake oil bs this system was actually designed to run 4 subs. Tfm75 and 2 pt1800s to power all of it. 1800 to each 18” and the 75 to run the 15s that match which would of given a total of 5100 watts on the subs. however I came to a point to where I wanted to test my boxes before spending another 200 in materials to finish them. In that testing I have found it unnecessary to implement that system. as my old lady complains of breathing issues and chest pains at around 1/2 volume. At full volume she has to go outside however it vibrates the air outside as well if you let the door open lmao it’s an experience indeed whats yours?
  11. A760x demolished the m1.0t In subwoofer output. M1.0t remains supreme vs the a760x on clarity detail for the highs. But the a760x laughed at the m1.0t in the sub section
  12. The proper people make some good vids. The Detroit factories were sad along with the abandoned hospitals and colleges that still had everything inside the vandalism is disgusting.
  13. just wrapped up my 2nd m1.0t mkll opt2 build. all dialed in and ready to go, cant wait for the test drive tomorrow. 1 m1.0t opt2 on the front and 1 m1.0t opt2 on the subs vs 1 m1.0t opt2 on the front and a juiced a760x on the subs. I still think the a760x will remain supreme for sub duty but I will find out later today let the destruction commence
  14. hey guys thanks for the warm welcome. since the site was down for those few weeks ive been a very busy boy. lol ended up buying 5 m1.0t's 1 753x 1 tfm24 1 c1 1 c4000 1 tfm 42 and 45 serviced 4 m1.5ts and a c1 and built 2 mk2 opt 2 amps. the c1 I tweaked a bit. full metal resistors muse and fine gold caps silver mica to replace the ceramics and gold plate upgrade. left the opamps alone. what resulted in a very detailed and quiet preamp. theres zero hiss hums buzzes even when the volume is turned to max. when the music quiets down to 1 one instrument still no background noise and no noise when changing tracks. youd never know the preamp was on. im very pleased with the result. however im thinking of getting another c1 and doing the same thing however replacing all 9 opamps then compare it to the non opamp. heres the c1 and mk2 opt2 put together and running the a753x lidless lol ^^ don't trust ebay sellers too much bough a tfm-45 for 300 recapped it upgraded it turned around and sold it when for 819 this model had gold plated pins on pcb bought a tfm-24 that was supposed to be in perfect working order my ass. had some bad parts in the right channel. fixed it recapped and upgraded it and getting ready to sell it lol sold a recapped m1.5t with purple lights serviced a m200t and some soundtests on the m1.5ts I serviced that's all I got for now lol
  15. @sk1bum - yeah ive been eyeing those. but im really looking for another set of the tower iia/r or the tower ii. trying to stick with same year models etc. even started buying up original woofers for the towers just to have spare parts incase. I got these towers from my dads best friend. he used to run a stereo store in Torrance California back in the 80's/90's was a dealer for vmps cerwin and jamo and carried quite a bit of carver. he finally let em go to me last year for 2500. he has a set of tower ii's so im hoping just to buy those as well lol imagine being a kid walking into someones house and just wall to wall speakers and amps. I loved it @jeffs - I will agree on sub duty the m500t outshines the m1.5t however the m1.5t does solid whacks better. I just cant get over the floating in the woofers with the m500t. that's why I love a series for lows. they have the whack and control of the m1.5t but with the dynamic range of the m500t. almost like if you merged a m1.5t and m500t you get the a series. interesting opinion on the mk2 opt2. I was hoping it would be a more powerful m1.5t with just the same sound. now im going to have to upgrade this m1.0t to find out if I even like it. so far ive tried the m1.0t stock on lows and hasn't done bad but haven't tried with highs yet. interesting about the voltages does it increase the temps at all?
  16. thanks, I do alright most mods are fairly easy and I spent most of my childhood soldering team associated rc cars lol so soldering is fun to me. still learning a bit but so far brought 3 amps back from the dead so cant complain I suppose honestly the m1.5t is my favorite. it has the sweetest sound of all the solid state carvers to me. the m1.5t is very controlled and very precise. has no problem powering those 16 drivers at 6ohm. everyone always goes to the m500t for best sounding but I disagree. and every 500t ive seen in action had no control over the woofers at all. just kinda floated around. ive heard 4 of em all the same. however I do have m500t that ill prolly mk2 at some point and recompare it. maybe its a better amp for mids and highs alone idk however I don't run my system without subs and hands down any A series 2 channel amp is the best amp for subs. ive tried all other carver models and the a220 would over power m series and most of all tfm series. unfortunately I sold the silver seven t's and tfm-75 before I got my hands on an a760x to compare. the lightstar only amp haven't gotten my hands on yet a760x so far haven't found something to compete with it in subwoofers at 4 ohms. so.... that's why I bought a m1.0t recently time for an mk2 opt2 upgrade and give the a760x a rival. however I don't think the m1.0t will win either. but im also looking for most power out of one cord. but hey nothing wrong with experimenting having fun. what I like and what everyone likes and opinions will differ. but always keep an open mind
  17. for my own personal concert …. heres my little home experience sony e9000es bsr eq for the spectrum analyzer flac streamed from bluray 2 m1.5ts one purple one blue both matched internals a760x for the lows powering 12 and 15 sony mobile es subs in custom built boxes vmps super tower iia/r vmps qs808 for rear hoping to get another set of vmps towers in the future for the rear and then my life will be complete vid of the a760 after I recapped it doing its thing lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezv-goDQE5c I actually got quite few carver pieces. m500t m1.0t 3 m1.5ts a760x a753x a500x a220 2 tfm-15cbs tfm-35x tfm-55x tfm-24 tfm-45 and just scored a c-1 preamp which showed today yay. heres a pic of a tfm15 and a220 I just recently listed for sale ill add more pics when im alittle more organized and my final build is setup and yes that is red white and blue like an American amp should be haha
