Hello everyone, M4120 repair?

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 -

Re: Hello everyone, M4120 repair?

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.

Mobile Audio I would say not but am Happy he still works with Tube amplifiers and soon some speakers and a possible mini sub \:D/
