Audiophile 101,
M500T in stereo into a four ohm load is 350 watts per channel. I also have MXR-130 playing 4 Pioneer HPM-100's which sounds good but I dont believe it can hold a candle to my 6 M500T's.

I am there same name as here. I posted the problem I am having with the M500 I have and a gentleman who used to be a Carver Tech is advising me with the repair. Another guy even offered to help me fix it If I went to his house. Seems like a nice bunch of people there.

I enjoyed Clapton up until the point where they played the hell out of Tears in Heaven. Now I could care less if he ever sang another note. As far as the studio goes its kinda like an athlete on steroids In my opinion alot of them sound like hell when they sing live. Can't even carry a note.

Treitz3,
I have the schematic for an M 500T that is what I have been using up to this point. I may need to obtain one for just the M500 in order to rectify the few remaining problems I have.

I agree that the extra money for name brand wire is a waste. My longest run is about 40 feet so I bought the Sound King 12 GA wire from Parts Express. Back then a 100 ft roll was 29 bucks.
