Need 12 Series Instructions

Post by dante » Tue Feb 19, 2013 8:08 pm

Hello everybody,

I am researching everything for a 12 Series build but can not find a step by step instruction manual like there is for the 100 watt plexi and the 100 watt MV. Is there a reference cd available from Metro Amps with instructions? Is there even anything available since this does not come as a kit? It would be nice to know this before I start gathering the materials.

Thanks for the reply! Those were the instruction manuals that I was talking about. Do I just use on of them for the 12000 build?

Check out this thread. There are intructions (incl photos) for 12xxx series made by a forum member. But read all the comments first.

Go with Night Owls instructions in tandem with Georges 59 100w instructions-there is allot of overlap. Print out Night Owls pictures and instruction, plus you should print up large copies of the 67/68 full chassis layout from Bill Bats, to have a complete visual reference. Most important, you need to pay attention to the color codes of the tranny's you choose. Document your build here with pics so we can double check your work, that way we all have fun! :D
Also use Georges 12xxx pics for wire dress:

emmjaydubya has great wire dress and solder work as well.

Billy Batz layout was a big help and vh junkie's thread on Larry grounding is a must also:

Wow, you guys are super helpful. Thank you so much. I appreciate your comments and any advice you could give. This build gets me excited. I just purchased the SoZo Mustard caps. Luckily I found some, .022uF are sold out almost everywhere!
