 Forum: Vintage Audio   Topic: Bridging a pair of Nikko Alpha-220 amps

According to the service manual, the Nikko Alpha 220 is rated at 130 wpc into 4 ohms @ .02% THD, so that would give you 260 watts into 8 ohms bridged, per amp. Probably a little more at clipping.

Nice looking rack set-up 8)

The 12S tweeter is compatible but will sound very different than the other unit. The original CM used Ferrofuid which is probably dried up now, so the 12S unit will sound very "bright" if it still has the original Phenolic Brown diaphram. While the original diaphrams are no longer availabl...

What you are asking for is pretty tame in the Pro Audio world. :mrgreen: I would suggest visiting the Facebook group "Unofficial DIYSoundGroup Enthusiasts" or similar where you will receive more support & expertise than this site.

I would guess it's not a 1979 build. Some of the changes you mention happened around 1982-84 according to some of the different schematics I just reviewed. Silver handles were also the norm on the old units. Your unit does look in great condition though! I would grab the serial # off the bottom &...

I tried to attach a Behringer PDF with RMS info but I guess it's not allowed. PM me with email & I'll send it to you. 3000 = 315/8, 620/4,1040/2 per channel RMS x 2 4-6000 = 315/8, 620/4,1040/2 per channel RMS x 4 6000 = 1100/8, 2200/4 per channel RMS x 2 I am currently running a EP4000 on a sin...

The 6000 is essentially 2 x 3000 in bridged mode, so only 4 ohm minimum. Need to buy another 6000 :twisted: :D

"The same model sold a few months ago for $150 more than you are asking. To be fair, I will offer you $150 more than your firm asking price." said no lowballer EVER. :lol: This seems like a useless feature that CAM should not spend the money to develop unless it is to be made available as...

Having an option to search "Sold" or "Completed" listings like on eBay would be very helpful. A Google search with correct terms will sometimes get you these but would be nicer through the CAM site. When marking an item "Sold", CAM prompts me to give the selling price o...

I saw George Thorogood several times in late 80's, early 90's in the Saskatoon Centennial. The one time, Sound was Over-driven & Distorted so bad, worst I've ever heard. Bad sound guy really wrecks the experience & reputation of the artist. Are some of these guys working drunk or just plain ...

I did this for the first time recently & was fairly straight forward, creating an invoice through PayPal. The buyer had no idea about Canadian dollar, so I did a quick conversion & quoted him $US. Ended up shorting myself as PayPal conversion was not as good, so buyer got a good deal, my fau...

JBL has supplied a couple different glues with their Recone kits & there is always lots left over that I've used for other non-JBL work. One was a "Bostic Adhesive 4035" & was the best for spider/surround to basket. It was Brown in colour, so not the best looking for dustcap but I'...

I must say I'm disappointed in the JBL's. Just finished re-foaming them and I can't say I'm impressed. I've never heard JBL's before, and have read all the hype.....They seem rather mixed up in their sound, muddled, not clear or detailed. Awesome Yard Sale score! Right out of college, I worked at a...

The supplier that Rene posted the link to for the kits does quote use of Edge wound coils. I've also seen good & bad aftermarket kits for all brands. I've also seen OEM kits fail badly due to sloppy workmanship/cleaning by reconer. This is why I'm asking for peoples experiences/advise with diffe...

@ renehuot70, quote for Mass Rings is from local dealer. I am going down today to order. The only source I can find online is http://reconingspeakers.com at $85 each. I seem to recall them being a lot cheaper awhile back.

@ dr.joe, I sent an email to Jim Burghall, thanks for tip.
