I need some help please.
I’m using a CT-17 pre amp with pair of bridged M500T amps.
After getting it back from repair shop – for replacement power relay, I was playing the system the other day, and noticed I could not get the volume I used too.
With cd, record, or dvd as source, I can move the volume dial all the way to max.
The amp’s don’t seem to reach full power – even the needles don’t register peak power levels.
Prior to the pre amp repair, with volume at about ½, amps would be louder with needles reaching close to max power.
In other words, I could drive the amps to their limit (just before clipping) now I can’t get to this point.
I’ve checked my wiring, even switched to just one M500T – same effect.
I’m not sure if the repair is tied to this or not. When I talked to the tech – he assured me the relay was an audio quality part with spec’s that are equal to the org relay.
Any ideas why I’ve lost the max power output or power range?
