Hello everyone, M4120 repair?

Post by mobileaudiofan » Sun Jan 09, 2011 10:40 am

Hello, I have been a Carver nut for twenty plus years. I have mostly mobile audio, 2 M4120's, 2 M240's, 1 M2120, 1 M2060, 1 M2030, and one M 2020. I have been hearing a lot about older capacitors leaking and or failing. My question is this, where would I have any Carver car audio serviced? Are the caps standard? I could do the work myself. Also, does anyone have a parts list for the M4120? I believe I am needing what looks like a bridge rectifier. I cannot fully read the part number and since my other M4120 is still in use I do not want to remove and dissect it just for a part number. Thank you for any information.

Like many here, I am too old to drive.

For everyone on CARVER who has a special music room, a thousand enjoy music from their car. That is a great place, and nothing I have compares with the AM radio in my 1963 VW, not to mention all the speakers in my Van I bought after the war. I bought some speakers, made some boxes - great!!!
Nothing like the Carver gear you have.

Welcome -

Too old too drive, never heard of such a thing. That is why they make ATV's and back yards(or the neighbors yard). Thank you for the warm welcome everyone. By the way, where is the "repair section". I have looked around and I can't find anything like that. Of course I am new to this forum and still have to find my way around. P.S. does anyone think they could talk Bob Carver into producing mobile audio again? Just food for thought.
