M1.0t Binding Posts

Post by earless » Thu Jul 23, 2009 5:24 pm


I want to change the binding posts on my M1.0t and replace them with Cardas posts.
Before I open up the amp, and have it unusable until the posts arrive, I would like to know whether these will fit, and whether I should order longs or shorts.

All help in the matter will be gratefully received.

RichP714 has modified the ones on the Mk.II amp. IIRC, the hole was a little too big, and he had to use a washer with one side ground down. I did my M-500 amps with the same posts and did something similar. I had a depth problem and had to saw off two of mine, but I think it's just a problem with the M-500. You only have to go through a sheet metal panel, so I don't think the short ones would be a problem. You always have problems with longer ones running into components on the inside. You probably should look before you jump.
It should sound like it isn't there!
