Which Scott do these Speakers go to?

I am redoing my workspace and found these speakers among all my Scott stuff.  The tag says they go with my Phantom, but I don't think that is correct as I have not been able to find any reference to…Continue

"Anywhere I mentioned a 75 tube I should have said 76 tube.  Sorry for any confusion. Joe"

"The schematic is not correct.  As mentioned the 75 2nd detector is not shown and the 6B7 should be a 6D6.  I have attached a spreadsheet that itemizes the changes made to the AW23 to achieve an AW27."

Thomas Day replied to Joe Miller's discussion New Owner of AW27 Custom
"If the shown schematic is correct, the addition of the expander required the omission of 4 tubes in the original allwave 23 to keep the same chassis. Those appear to be the 76 second detector, the meter amp, and both 6C6 driver tubes, which moved to…"

"Yes,  mine has the 6D6 and 75 design which is like the other AW27's.  I have 19 tubes on the tuner.  "

"Ok, I confused the RF tube with the RF AVC tube which I see is included and correctly labeled.  The schematic shows 18 tubes whereas the original AW-27 sets had 19 tubes on the tuner (neon bulbs included in the count).  The 6B7 second…"

Joe Miller replied to Joe Miller's discussion New Owner of AW27 Custom
"No, only one amp, but it does have tweeters with the main speaker.  The RF amp is a 6D6.  The 4th IF is actually a 6D6 so it needs a 75 detector which is not shown.  Note there are only 18 speakers shown on the schematic rather than…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Joe Miller's discussion New Owner of AW27 Custom
"Looks like the labels for the RF amplifier and the second detector were swapped.  The AW-27 had a single power amplifier.  Is the one you have biamplified and equipped with a separate woofer and mid-range+tweeter? Norman"

New Owner of AW27 Custom

Hi everyone,  I recently purchased a "custom" AW27.  I say custom because it was constructed by modifying an AW23 tuner and putting together two AW23 amp chasses.  It sits on a custom made Napier cabinet.  I couldn't be happier with it.  They guys did a fabulous job on everything.  It plays great and looks great.  In fact, it looks like a new one.  Anyway, I have attached a schematic for it.  It has some errors in it, e.g. I think the 2nd detector tube is missing and the 4th IF is shown as a…See More

"I'm with Norman on the pre-war sets - while we know they were built by Magnavox, Scott always had their foil sticker on the speakers. Post-war, outside of E.H.'s control, they were less concerned about the branding. Kent"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Joe Miller's discussion Which Scott do these Speakers go to?

WTB Speaker for Scott Masterpiece

Posted on October 1, 2019 at 7:05pm 2 Comments

I picked up a tuner and amp at the recent radio auction in Indy, but no speaker.  So I am looking for one.  It has an octal plug on it and the speaker has two field coils:

One at 680 ohms and the other is 125+65 ohms (it is also split)

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

Joe

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…
