My last 2

Yesterday the spirit finally moved me to start building my last 2 Carverfest monoblocks. I was missing some parts and needed to order what I did not recieve in my kits. Here is a few pics of last nights progress.

Re: My last 2

jjptkd, I have tried my 2 working monoblocks on several sets of speaks they are currently playing a pair of Polk monitor 10's. As far as Cerwins the only ones I have played on the amps are a pair of D1's the ones I had the thread called refoam job about, I liked them as they reach down to 30 Hz with only an 8 inch woofer. The speaks I liked the most on the amps were a pair of Pioneer HPM-40's they sounded incredible with the tubes. I put them on CL and they sold right away. I just have two much audio stuff, next up on the block is a pair of Dahlquist DQ-8's as soon as the spirit moves me to list them.

Number 3 is all finished and the only thing left to do is install the transformer covers. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Those tubes glow quite nicely if I do say so myself.

Re: My last 2

If you have any blue wire left over when you're done, mail it to me!
All I lack are 4 1/2" pieces of blue x4
Trying to match the first one.
It's silly, but hey, if you're just going to throw it out at the end anyway....

Re: My last 2

I never throw out any wire that may be usable. I have a box full of all different colors and gauges. If I have any blue wire left you can have it Martin. Will let you know when I am finished with the last amp.
