Remarks

I'm pleased to inform you that we have developed a method for improving the thermal stability of the 1800 amplifier, which may have been a problem to you during the last several months. This problem was caused by a change we were forced to make when RCA discontinued the manufacture of the transistor we had been using as Q3 on the 1800 PCB's. The following change should be made on 1800 PCB,s which have the new Q3 ( MMPS U10 ). 1. Change R13, the bias pot (P N 102832), to a new one which has not...

6Thermal Cutoff Procedure

110v Omin Relay Diagram

6.1 Apply a signal to the unit with the outputs loaded 8 or 4 ohms . Short one channel at a time until the unit goes into thermal cutoff. The thermal indicator should turn on and the output of the unit should be off. 6.2 Disconnect the short from the output. Wait until the unit comes out of thermal cutoff. You can speed this process by cooling the PCB with a fan. 6.3 Once the unit is cooled apply a signal to the channel you had shorted to check to see if its operational. 6.4 Apply a signal to...
