Amazing Platinum MKIV documentation

Post by vette45 » Wed Jul 01, 2009 1:55 am

Hi,

I've just recently acquired a pair of ALS Platinum MKIV. Can anyone please tell me where can I obtain a copy of the owner's manual plus any other relevant documentation?

Thanks,
Wilkie

Thanks for the manual slonar. It's good to have copies of service manuals for speakers I would like to have some day.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Hi Slonar,

Thanks for your reply. But I've the Platinum MKIV edition and the doc you pointed out doesn't cover that.

Do you or anyone else have link or scan copy of both the owner's manual and service manual for the MKIV?

I would like to learn about the specifics on MKIV and especially the proper way for positioning the speakers and tuning the 3 POTs on the back.

Please help.

Thanks,

The positioning would be the same as with the other Amazing's. The control adjustments are best explained by actually using them.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

I'm all for trial and error. You certainly cannot get tired of listening to these Amazings :)

But I'd still like to start with what's recommended by Carver first. I assume the MKIV Owner's manual would explain the purpose and adjustment procedure for the 3 POTs, right?

Someone out there who owns a MKIV with documentation, please help!

Thanks.

Setting the pots is HIGHLY room & placement dependent. Start in the middle & adjust to taste... :D
