Mike's Toy

I have a DTL100, a DTL200, C1 pre-amp, M500t amp, one pair of Polk Audio 5B speakers and a pair of Reynolds Advance A22 towers that need woofers and tweeters. One pair of tweeters are in the Polks (had one go south on me) :(

Re: Mike's Toy

Hi, if the Polks have the SL2000 tweeter, I'll be glad to send you one or two for just the cost of shipping. If you'd like the newer replacement model from Polk, you can get a nice discount on them if you join the Polk forum, they're something like $48 shipped for members.P.S. if you've got the peerless tweeter, you'd be better off finding a used one on ebay. :)

Re: Mike's Toy

I would also like to redo the Reynolds Advance A22 towers, they have been in storage for about 10 years, cabinets have a few marks on them, also need a, if I remember correctly a pair of twweters an a couple of mids, not sure where I can source out parts for these. Each speaker consists of 2 twweters, 2 mids and 2 prs. I'm not sure the sizes just of hand, I will have to take them out and check this out. I believe I bought them in 1982 or 83, I got a deal on them 2 for the price of 1, still came out to $1,500 at the time.

I have noticed lately there are several members owning the M-500t? This amp must really be holding it own being 28 years old!!! Wow! :-k

Mike, you can get a lot of answers on the forum linked below and the PE catalog has many speaker parts and drivers. :)

Re: Mike's Toy

All my Carver was bought in 1985 the M500t still sounds great, the pre amp needs the volume pot cleaned (a little scratchy some times just have to put some De-Oxit one of these days) some day I will probably have the amp gone through, the only prblem is I live in Canada and I'm not sure how much hassle it is going to be to get it across the border and back again. :?

There are a couple things about M-500ts that make them desirable. First, they are pretty (at least to me). I love those big meters. Second, they sound really nice. Finally, they are easy to work on. They open from the top and bottom, and there is one board for the amplifiers and one board for the power supply. So you can stand the amp up on its side and reach a part from one side and solder/de-solder from the other. You don't have to remove the boards at all. For about $40 in parts you can replace pretty much anything that can wear out in there. Hard to break, easy to fix. Just like a VW beetle.
