I thought this was a Masterpiece Speaker.  It has the 8 pin plug and it is wired like the Masterpiece schematic shows except for pin 7 which is connected to ground rather than to the 4th terminal…Continue

Can Anyone ID this Scott Speaker

I thought this was a Masterpiece Speaker.  It has the 8 pin plug and it is wired like the Masterpiece schematic shows except for pin 7 which is connected to ground rather than to the 4th terminal point.  The schematic shows a field coil with 2 separate windings (4 wires).  My field coil measures 925 ohms with a tap at 532 ohms (3 wires).Anyone know what I have here?Thanks,JoeSee More

"Joe - I agree with Norman a gravity issue. As per Norman, that "spring" is likely a flexible metal strip serving as the contact for the rotor (moving portion of that small tuning cap). My restored and working AC-10 left control had a…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Joe Miller's discussion Scott AC10 Questions
"I suspect that what appears to be a spring is actually a positive electrical contact to the rotor and the homing of the trimmer is due to some extent by gravity. The trimmer should rely on friction to stay put. Some trimmers have end play…"

Scott AC10 Questions

Hi all,I am trying to get my AC10 in its best possible operating condition and have a few questions:1.  The left hand knob is a trimmer capacitor which works great when tuning, but it is spring loaded and wants to return back to the "home" position, which defeats its purpose.  I assume it should remain at the position that provides the most gain and not spring back to "home".  Is my control defective or am I doing something wrong?2.  Has anyone performed the balancing procedure to align it?  If…See More

Philly Amp wiring

Posted on July 20, 2016 at 9:57pm 1 Comment

I am working on a Philly amp and am finding a number of wiring mods that deviate from the schematic. Some are due to someone bypassing a bad audio transformer and for adding a second phone plug input with volume/mixing pots.

But I also found a 125 ohm Candohm type resistor that is factory mounted to the side of the amp chassis. It is connected in series to the cap connected to pin 6 of the set plug socket and then tied to ground. It doesn't show on the schematics that I…
